Review this movie
Mar 31, 2013Price Check starts off as workplace comedy, then as movie goes on it turns more into relationship drama. In the end what what it has left is bit of mix-and-match of both, yet neither working that well. On positive side the roles are carried out well by the actors.

Writer-director Michael Walker keeps a firm grip on his smart material, offering up big laughs, lots of recognizable behavior and, in the end, a wistful glimpse at life's inevitable priorities.
Once Price Check darkens, it loses its comic footing, along with its nerve, and becomes a wishy-washy potpourri of elements that fail to mesh: backing away from its satirical potential, it sputters toward an evasive and unsatisfying ending. Ms. Posey, however, blithely sails above the fray.
