Unfinished Business (20th Century Fox, 3.6.15) is apparently a lowbrow Animal House-type comedy among struggling entrepeneurs during a do-or-die business deal in Germany. It’s also a re-teaming of a noticeably thinner Vince Vaughn with Ken Scott, who directed Vaughn in Delivery Man (’13), a remake of Scott’s Canadian-produced Starbuck (’11). I wish Vaughn could make a comedy that reflected his actual, real-deal comic sensibilities without having to pander to the megaplex apes. Pic was filmed in the Boston area (Framingham, Braintree) and Berlin and HE’s own Studio Babelsberg.
Boilerplate: A hard working small business owner (Vaughn) and his two associates (Tom Wilkinson, Dave Franco) travel to Europe to close the most important deal of their lives. But what began as a routine business trip goes off the rails in every imaginable and unimaginable way, including unplanned stops at a massive sex fetish event and a global economic summit.”
