Review

Our Score
This unconventional satire of work relationships and office politics is one of the oddest studio comedies in years. The biggest surprise is that the quirky humour comes courtesy of Mike Judge, one of the creators of the far from subtle Beavis and Butt-head. Jennifer Aniston (as a waitress) and Gary Cole (as a dreary boss) are the familiar faces in an otherwise relatively unknown cast, and the offbeat jokes range from droll references to singer Michael Bolton and Superman III to swipes at restaurant etiquette and office technology. It's not for all tastes and the final third is disappointingly mundane compared to what's gone before.

Summary

A jaded computer programmer goes to bizarre lengths to get fired from his dull job - but his new laid-back attitude leads to unexpected promotions as his arrogance is taken for supreme self-confidence by unwitting bosses. Satirical comedy, starring Ron Livingston, Jennifer Aniston, Ajay Naidu and Gary Cole.
