From the pen of John Hughes comes "Career Opportunites", a romantic teen comedy set to the backdrop of a Target Superstore. Frank Whaley stars as Jim Dodge, the town liar, complete with Elvis Presley hair do, who after getting kicked out of numerous jobs, lands himself a new job as a "night clean-up boy" at a Target store. Frank plays the type of role that would of made Ferris Bueller proud as he talks to the camera and avoids responsibility at all costs. John Hughes favourite John Candy makes an uncredited cameo appearance as C.D Marsh the manger of the Target store while William Forsythe is hilarious as the store's custodian who gives Whaley a quick run through on his janitor duties. Jennifer Connelly stars as the poor little rich girl who wanders around the film in a figure hugging white tank top. Connelly and Whaley look good on screen together and their heart-felt talks during the middle-part of the film remind us all of "The Breakfast Club" classroom discussions. "Career Opportunities" has a bouncy pop music score that features numerous montages of Whaley cleaning up the store in different states of dress. "Career Opportunities" moves into "Home Alone" territory in the final act, with real-life brothers Dermot and Kieran Mulroney playing two bumbling hoods that decide to rob the Target store. With its short running time of 83 minutes, complete with quick wrap up ending "Career Opportunities" is not without its faults but for any fan of John Hughes teen comedies this film can not go unnoticed and is a worthy addition to any collection. "Career Opportunities" is enjoyable lightweight teen entertainment.
