A sweet if ultimately wan comedy about male bonding and office politics.
The dialogue is embarrassing, and scenes that should take two minutes wind up lasting 10.
It's like an artificial chocolate "bit" -- looks kinda the same as a real chocolate chip, but it's an unsatisfying imitation.
Starts off so shakily and features such overly familiar material that by the time the filmmaker's love for his characters starts to shine through the stale jokes and recycled premise, it's too late for the film to close the sale.
An outrageously funny, irreverent comedy that will have you in stitches, as long as you're willing to check your brain at the door for 91 minutes.
Jameel Khan's film springs from the format of The Office like a blurred reproduction from a bad copy machine.
Like an unathletic kid giving T-ball a shot, The Strip is consistently mediocre, but you give it credit for trying.
