The Job is an independent darkly comic drama written and directed by Shem Bitterman based on his 1998 play.[1] The world premiere of The Job was at the San Diego Film Festival on September 26, 2009.[2]


A hapless man named Bubba, who is desperate to find a job and marry the woman he loves, is hooked up with a slick employment agent by a drifter. Only after agreeing to the job (a contract kill, no less), Bubba finds himself in over his head.[1]



Filming began on 6 May 2008 in Detroit,[1] and ended in July 2008.


After a very brief limited release, the film was released on DVD on 27 July 2010.
