The Promotion is a 2008 comedy from writer/director Steven Conrad and starring Seann William Scott and John C. Reilly about two men in a knock-down drag-out struggle for a big promotion at supermarket where they work. William Scott plays Doug Stauber, a young man who has devoted himself to his career at Donaldson's, a chain of grocery stores in Chicago. Despite the consistently frustrating and unfair challenges he meets everyday as the assistant manager, he still works hard to climb the corporate ladder and make something of himself at Donaldson's. Doug's hard work is finally validated when he learns a new Donaldson's is being opened a few blocks from his home, putting his name at the top of a short list of candidates for store manager. His hopes are dashed, however, when an older Canadian man moves to town and gets hired as assistant manager alongside Doug. Richard Wehlner (John C. Reilly) will be tough competition for the coveted store manager position, and as the date for the new store's grand opening gets closer and closer, the two men resort to any means necessary to secure The Promotion for themselves.moreless
