    While it plays more like stage or TV sketch-comedy shtick than film material, this modest, visually unimposing production remains entertaining thanks to its ironic observations and winning sense of folly.
  2. 58
    Pleasant and light and builds nicely within its own self-circumscribed intent.
  3. A funny movie, but like "Josh" himself, it's too self-absorbed, and maybe too nice, for its own good.

    Already too long. It makes you want to start moving globs of dirt to tunnel out of the theater as the movie ends with the famous theme to "The Great Escape."
  5. 50
    After a few very funny early sequences, tricked up with grotesque, surreal editing and camerawork, the movie gets bogged down a bit during the first third.
  6. 40
    The Kornbluths don't offer much visual style -- the film is as flat and sterile as its corporate environs -- but they build an excruciating tension from Kornbluth's confounding inability to lick a few stamps.
  7. No doubt this effort will find its fans, as it should, but there's a lot of lost potential.
  8. Some of the gags here are funny, but they aren't executed effectively enough to score.

    I am a big fan of the "loser" movie genre, plus orginally from the bay area, so I really loved it. I thought it had some dead on satire, and I am a big fan of the "loser" movie genre, plus orginally from the bay area, so I really loved it. I thought it had some dead on satire, and some great quotes. I have to admit tho that I recommended it to some friends and they now give me funny looks. Full Review »
