  1. New Guy isn't the first movie to get laughs from the bloodless milieu of contemporary corporate life. But it may be the first to offer a frightening glimpse of the actual blood pulsing beneath.
  2. Reviewed by: Phil Hall

    An original and highly memorable comedy, and mention should be made of Ebiri’s work beyond filmmaking: he is also a film critic for New York Magazine, thus giving proof that those who review films for a living can also turn around and make a damn fine movie.
  3. Reviewed by: Dennis Harvey
    60
    Does a lot with little, milking a single location and minimal dialogue for deadpan humor, tension, and macabre payoff.
  4. Rises above its low-budget limitations by pandering to the most outrageously paranoid fantasies of unhappy office drones.
  5. 50
    Never quite locates a sensibility to call its own.
  6. 50
    This is Ebiri's first feature after directing four shorts. He shows talent, but shouldn't give up his day job just yet.
  7. Alas, the movie is less clever than its characters.
