Ready, Set, Bag! documents the quests of eight state-champion grocery baggers as they prepare for the National Grocers Association’s competition for Best Bagger, held every February in Las Vegas. As each contestant trains for the big event and brings order to a chaotic universe one egg carton on top at a time, their life stories and infectious love of what they do will thaw the frozen caveman hearts of any viewer.
One dollar from each Groupon will also be donated to Food Bank of the Rockies, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending hunger in Northern Colorado and Wyoming. The organization will use its brute group strength to feed a family of four for each dollar received.
- The contestants, all (with the exception of a 50-year-old Minnesota man) in their late teens and early 20s and completely charming in their naiveté, are so enthusiastic and serious about grocery-store life that one feels cynical and hardened by comparison. – Chuck Wilson, LA Weekly
