The crass story-line went off the rails at the midway point and thereafter just turns into a train wreck.

As written by Kevin Falls and directed by Tom Holland, The Temp starts well and runs into trouble about midway through.

The gimmick of The Temp runs dry really fast and is not worth investing the time to see what happens.

The Temp is a wholly ridiculous little thriller, yet it repeatedly goes above and beyond the 'so bad it's good' realm.

The Temp manages to involve and entertain in a crafty B-movie way even if what it is is only a fraction of what it promises.

If you're in need of a good giggle, go rent The Temp right now.

As another entry in the 'don't-trust- anyone' paranoia thrillers that have taken over the fright genre of late, The Temp is one of the dumbest.

Some of the movie plays as if it were intended to be tongue-in-cheek, but other parts are played straight, making it appear that Holland and his screenwriter Kevin Falls couldn't make up their minds about what sort of movie they wanted to make.

The Temp is as unimaginative as thrillers get, with a plot-by-numbers script and insipid direction.
