Does Vince Vaughn have some unfinished business with Foot Locker? It would appear so.
The deadpan man, whose latest film “Unfinished Business” hits the big screen on March 6, plays a small business owner with something to prove. Taking on the classic Vaughn role, his character finds himself surrounded with a hodgepodge group of associates. One of them, a nerdy kid played by Dave Franco (younger brother of James), isn’t a fan of the footwear business — well, really, feet for that matter.
When Franco meets Vaughn for the first time in a parking lot of their soon-to-be corporate rival, the conversation quickly turns to prior work experience.
“Do you have any sales experience,” Vaughn asked.
“Yes I do,” Franco said with enthusiasm. “Yeah, at Foot Locker.”
“Great,” replied Vaughn. “And reasons for leaving?”
“I don’t like feet.”
The two eventually team up, along with an elder, out-of-touch business man played by Tom Wilkinson. The threesome hit the road to Europe with the goal of nabbing a big account.
It’s no surprise things soon “go off the rails in every way imaginable — and unimaginable — including unplanned stops at a massive sex fetish event and a global economic summit,” according to an IMDB description.
The movie also stars Sienna Miller — who is coming off her smash hit role in the Academy Award-nominated “American Sniper” — and June Diane Raphael.
While the retail world wasn’t a good fit for Franco’s character, who hasn’t had a job or two that didn’t go according to plan. Tell us about a job that wasn’t right for you @Footwearnews.
