Movie Info

With a script that is too anemic for the red-blooded actors featured here, this anorexic comedy moves slowly up and down the corporate ladder with the fortunes and misfortunes of several company men. Jack Issel (Judge Reinhold) gets a VIP position at INC in the PR department (business-speak). Suddenly the corporation's shady activities come to the fore -- especially when a U.S. plant is set to close for a move south of the border where labor is almost free.

Tries to be funny and satirical but misses the mark more often than not.

Audience Reviews for Head Office


Although there were many really funny scenes, there were also a bunch of unfunny scenes too, and sometimes the film didn't look like it was edited right or something. Overall, it's pretty good, but it could have been better. At least it has a good cast.

Surrealist comedy about Corporate America... Yet, there's no laughs to be found. Sad given the cast with very minor roles.


There are some very very funny scenes in this movie, it's like Wall Street if it were a black comedy where all the brokers were jumping out of windows. This movie would be great if not for things like the editing, director, and the beginning of the movie. I couldn't believe the beginning; the movie has DeVito and Moranis, who are the funniest guys in the movie (so far in the beginning), and they both die right away! This movie is deceptive that way, putting their names on the box and then killing their characters before you even get to know them. Overall, I'd say see this film if you are either a businessman or a Judge Reinhold fan (that's my reason for seeing this) , if not, you will find this movie just mildly funny.
