Management is a 2008 romantic comedy-drama directed and written by Stephen Belber, and stars Jennifer Aniston, Steve Zahn, and Woody Harrelson. The movie follows the story of a young man named Mike Cranshaw (Zahn), who works at his parent's motel in Arizona. He is searching for something more in his life, but he can't seem to figure out what that is. On the other hand, when a successful businesswoman named Sue Claussen (Aniston) checks in at the motel, everything in Mike's life gets turned upside down.

As Mike is the manager of the motel, he becomes infatuated with Sue, and he does everything in his power to impress her. However, Sue is not interested in Mike as a romantic partner, and she is determined to keep their relationship professional. The two of them share some awkward moments and have several run-ins, which leads to some humor and heartwarming moments.

The movie is not just about Mike's infatuation with Sue; it also delves into the themes of self-discovery, identity, and relationships. As Mike begins to understand himself and his desires better, he also starts to realize his feelings for Sue might not be what he thought they were. But, by this point, Sue has left the motel and gone back to her life in Maryland. Mike, not wanting to lose her, decides to drop everything and chase her across the country. His journey leads him to Sue's house and her boyfriend, Trish (Harrelson), a former punk rock musician.

The movie's final act is a culmination of all the themes and character arcs, where the characters are forced to confront their feelings and desires. This heartfelt finale leads to some emotional and bittersweet moments as the characters come to terms with who they are and what they truly want.

Jennifer Aniston delivers a captivating performance as Sue Claussen, a successful businesswoman who is trying to balance her work and personal life. At first, Sue seems cold and indifferent towards Mike, but as the movie progresses, she reveals more of herself and lets her guard down. Steve Zahn also gives a charming performance as Mike Cranshaw, who is trying to find his place in the world. He portrays the character's awkwardness and naivety perfectly, making him both relatable and endearing.

Woody Harrelson is also a standout in the movie, playing the role of Trish, Sue's boyfriend. Although he is only in a few scenes, Harrelson brings energy and comedic relief to the movie, adding to the movie's light-hearted tone.
