A well-known actor, who hasn't accepted a role in four years, is considering a project. The cousin of the director drives him to Archie's Ranch Market, in Carson, and drops him off to do a little research. He's fascinated by one of the checkers, Scarlet, a young woman from Spain with a preternatural ability to ring up items at the cash register. She hates her job, stuck at the 10 items or less lane. The actor chats her up, and when her shift ends, he asks for a ride. In the course of the afternoon, he helps her prepare for a job interview. She needs to have confidence, he needs to commit. Human contact, however brief, can change people.Written by
The short documentary about the making of this movie revealed that actress Paz Vega doesn't act that she doesn't speak English very well. Before shooting this picture her English skills were even worse than those portrayed in the movie. Some times she had to resort to phonetically copying the English words from the script. See more »

Morgan Freeman plays itself! '10 Items or Less ' is a film about reality as it can happen to anyone. Awesome! I love it that man! And it plays very well! Starting from this Zilbarling Brad, let things happen gradually and naturally - without effects, without further prompting and without a trace of an attempt to manipulate perceptions. This film looks like a scene from life itself. I like the lightweight style, as if everything is a joke. The girl plays a very casual, finally I fell in love with it (really)! She is cute! Overall the movie is very entertaining and relaxing. Binding in a dull Saturday night. Spanish flavor is very sexy! I've read many comments that the film is weak, slow that Morgan is exposed. Each with its taste, this is a movie for fun, not for action or drama. The atmosphere is kind of another time. It's fun! I recommend!
