This sounds like it was copied somewhence. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:56, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

It looks like it was, and I replaced it with a rewrite based on the official synopsis. Erik (talk | contribs) 22:24, 28 September 2011 (UTC)


There is a error in the summary

As he works on treatment for his daughter, he begins to miss more work. His boss confronts him about this and finally comes to his house, discovering the borrowed equipment and fires Curtis. He gives Dewart (Shea Whigham), a coworker who has been helping Curtis build the shelter, two weeks unpaid leave.

This summary misleads readers to think that Curtis' boss comes to his house to confront him about him missing work. What actually happens in the film is that Curtis requests that Dewart be reassigned to another team causing Dewart to tell their boss that Curtis has been borrowing equipment from the company to use on his home improvement project (the storm shelter), which is against company policy. His boss personally comes to his house to see it for himself and fire him.

There is no error. It is accurate in its essentials but is a very condensed and undetailed paraphrasis of what you've elaborated. JohndanR (talk) 06:08, 9 August 2016 (UTC)
