Watching a guy not mail 17 very important letters for sequence after sequence makes you want to conspire with his boss to have Josh accidentally electrocuted by office machinery.

Sacramento News & Review

Nothing but a boring, amateurish vanity production.

It starts off disarming and charming but grows tedious in its fastidious attention to meaningless details.

Eventually becomes less like a comedy and more like a guy working out his neuroses in front of a camera while we pay $8 to watch.

There's just not enough of a story for this to be a feature film.

It wouldn't seem very funny even if 1999's Office Space ... didn't exceedingly outpace it in laughs.

Almost from the beginning, it's obvious that Haiku Tunnel is a 40-minute short that imagines itself as a feature film.

A funny movie, but like 'Josh' himself, it's too self-absorbed, and maybe too nice, for its own good.

As 'Josh's' story wears on, so does one's patience.

Josh becomes increasingly distraught and depressed, but not nearly as much as the poor people watching the movie.

Kornbluth is funny, but not funny enough to carry his feature comedy.

If I want to watch a neurotic Jewish guy throw quips at the screen, I'll take Woody Allen in New York City over Josh Kornbluth in San Francisco any day. (Brief) case closed.

Without Woody Allen in the cast, this movie is afflicted with tunnel vision.

Amazingly amateurish, the film lands wide of satirical targets that should be impossible to miss.

Simultaneously admirable and somewhat tedious; you want to like it, but it's tough because it is a curiously flat enterprise.

It's only occasionally funny, it's exceedingly aimless, and the newly added subsidiary personalities have no substance.

There are far too many stretches where Josh is simply carried away with being Josh, and we are not particularly amused.

This story of a temp worker who panics when offered a chance to 'go perm' has a unique comic vision.
