"Let's go to Berlin. We can throw together a bunch of unusual local customs and cultural oddities in order to make this movie seem original and entertaining. And, hey, if we have at least a few good jokes in the trailer and make the movie poster look like the characters are having fun, then, you know, people will want to see the movie and have fun too." That's how I imagine the pitch meeting might have gone for most of what makes up "Unfinished Business" (R, 1:31). It's moments like this when I really feel I'm providing a valuable service with my reviews. I'm hoping that I can save some of my fellow movie fans from unknowingly walking into a bad movie! This is a comedy about business, with some drama about some other stuff. Yeah, that about sums it up, but I'll give you some of the details so you can make up your own mind. Vince Vaughn plays Dan Trunkman, a sales representative for a company that sells swarf. (Pay attention, Scrabble fans.) Believe it or not, swarf is a real thing. It refers to metal shavings left over from the construction of metal objects like bridges. (Don't ask me what the shavings are used for. The script doesn't explain that. It only barely explained swarf ? and not until about 1/3 the way into the movie.) Dan quits his sales job when his female boss (Sienna Miller) tells him he has to take a pay cut. (I only mention that she's a female because her name, inexplicably, is Chuck.) As he's leaving the office for the last time, Dan, in a Jerry Maguire-style moment, asks his gawking former co-workers if any of them want to come with him to start a new company. He gets Timothy (Tom Wilkinson), who had just been fired for hitting the ripe-old age of 67, and Mike (Dave Franco), who happened to be leaving the building after a job interview in which he was less than successful (completely understandable as soon as you hear this guy say two sentences). By the way, Mike's last name is Pancake. (Are you laughing yet?) A year later, Dan's new company is still struggling, when they suddenly seem on the verge of closing a major deal to sell another company some swarf. And just in time. Dan needs to start sending his overweight son to an expensive private school so he won't be bullied anymore. (That's the drama part that I mentioned earlier. That, and Dan's young daughter is? sad.) Dan flies all three of his employees (counting himself) from St. Louis (even though the movie was filmed in and around Boston) to Portland (Oregon? Maine? Ohio? Who knows?) to shake hands and seal the deal with his potential client's representative Jim Spinch (James Marsden). When Dan and company get to Portland, they discover that this deal isn't as done as he thought. Everyone then immediately flies to Berlin (where Jim's company is headquartered) to close the deal there. In Berlin, while the sex-starved Timothy and the naive Mike are distracted by local delights like a co-ed spa where everyone is naked, Dan tries to figure out how to make sure to close that big swarf-selling deal. While all this is going on, Berlin just happens to be hosting the G-8 summit, all the protesters that come with that, and a gay pride festival. This means that hotel rooms in Berlin are hard to come by, so Timothy and Mike end up staying in a youth hostel and Dan's only option is staying in a mock hotel room inside a museum, where people walk by and watch him like it's businessman island in the middle of a zoo. Now, if all these movie's disparate elements sound random, it's only because they are. At this point in my review, I thought about making some bad pun about the movie's script seeming "Unfinished", but that wouldn't be fair. This film seems more like a mash-up of SEVERAL unfinished movie scripts ? a business drama, an odd couple (actually, odd trio) buddy comedy, a bullying drama, a fish-out-of-water comedy and a revenge drama. Besides not knowing what kind of film it wanted to be or how to tie together all its subplots into a semi-cohesive and entertaining story, the movie is full of unlikeable and ridiculous characters played by a combination of unseasoned actors and otherwise accomplished actors who played their characters ridiculously. Even though "Unfinished Business" may make you laugh a couple times and, like me, you may respect the family story it tried to tell and the anti-bullying message it tried to deliver, I'm hoping that you have some unfinished business (ANY unfinished business) that will give you an excuse not to see this mess of a movie.

Unfinished Business was a welcome surprise. Based on what I had read about it, I was prepared to leave the theatre underwhelmed and disappointed. That did not happen, though. Vince Vaughn and Tom Wilkinson were amusing in their roles and they seemed to get things more right than wrong when it came to delivery and to timing. The character of their simple sidekick was more than a bit annoying, but it was good to see that the characters played by Vaughn and Wilkinson cut him a lot of slack. In short, this is a better movie than many IMDb amateur reviewers would have you believe. I found myself chuckling more than a few times, laughing at their antics and the absurdity of it all. This was a charming and amusing film in the end. If I were to guess, then some of the reviewers here may have felt discomfort over the depictions of drinking, drug use, and sexuality in this picture. So it goes. Recommended viewing for the non-church going set.
Um . . . where to start. The plot is basically three guys going to Europe to close a business deal. That's it. If the events surrounding the deal were entertaining and fun to watch, I would have no problem. Unfortunately, this film fails on every conceivable level to make it entertaining and distract from having such a thin plot. Not a single joke worked. Not the hamster ball scene, not the sauna scene, and not the bathroom scene. I could actually feel physical pain due to how cringe worthy and unfunny the gags were. None of the characters were funny, likable, or relatable. I usually enjoy Vince Vaughns portrayal as the working man, but in this film he comes across as weird and sexist (spoiler alert: there's a scene where they force you to look at his anus :/). The two other main characters are a man who makes fun of the mentally handicapped, and a dirty old man. What was the mindset here; why did anybody would sign on to make this movie!?! I am really concerned for Vince Vaughns career and the career of everyone else in this movie after watching this. The kid actors did a good job, Its too bad they were forced to say such insipid dialog. I have watched many bad comedies from Master of Disguise to Jack and Jill, but none of these were nearly as mean spirited, crude and unfunny as this movie is! Please don't waste time watching this!
