    Not all of the jokes hit, but enough of them do that anyone who's ever filed, collated, or played Mixmaster DJ with the transcribing machine will find cathartic giggles in this breakout debut.
  2. A sly and captivating comedy of imaginative leaps and gently orchestrated pandemonium.
  3. Delivers deliciously low blows at corporate America, office politics and the lengths people will go to avoid work.
  4. Reviewed by: Jay Carr
    They're a far cry from the Coen brothers, or even the Polish brothers, but Josh and Jacob Kornbluth emerge intact from their first filmmaking venture and score more hits than misses in this comedy.
  5. 58
    Pleasant and light and builds nicely within its own self-circumscribed intent.
  6. Reviewed by: Mike Clark
    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."
  7. Let's not waste any time: This movie is just awful. Prime problem: Josh Kornbluth, the chubby, wild-haired, bug-eyed star.

    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. Expand
