The town con and the town beauty team up to outwit a half-wit pair of would-be burglars in the comedy Career Opportunities from writer/producer John Hughes (The Breakfast Club). Jim Dodge (Frank Whaley) is a smooth-talking, small-town guy with a knack for putting up a front but no talent for holding down a job. Jim's life suddenly takes a turn for the fantastic when he finds himself locked inside the local department store one night with Josie McClellan (Jennifer Connelly), the daughter of the town's wealthiest citizen. When this unlikely pair is treated to a surprise visit from two bargain-hunting burglars (Dermot Mulroney and Kieran Mulroney), the laughs keep escalating in this delightfully entertaining look at small-town America.
