Plot Summary: At the age of 33, New Jersey mini-mart clerks and best friends Dante Hicks (Brian O’Halleron) and Randal Graves (Jeff Anderson) have it made. They work with each other, slack off all day, and get paid for it. But when the local Quick Stop that has been their entire life and livelihood suffers a cataclysm, Dante and Randal have to do the unthinkable: find new minimum-wage jobs. Now, they’re bringing their rapid-fire one-liners, bad attitudes and unbridled love of fun at the customer’s expense to Mooby’s burger joint, where the only other employees are an uber-nerd (Trevor Ferhman) and an entirely too sexy manager (Rosario Dawson). But when Dante announces that he’s going to leave Jersey forever and marry Emma Bunting (Jennifer Schwalbach Smith), his co-workers plan one last send-off that quickly goes awry. As unbridled debates rage over such burning matters as Return of the King v. Return of the Jedi; George Lucas v. Peter Jackson v. Jesus; and how far is too far in every area from teenage sex to “customer relations,” Dante has to figure out an even bigger riddle: just how friendship, love, work and having a great time every single day can all come together in one humble adult existence.
