Watchable. It met the minimal requirements to be watchable. Some amusing bits in there. It has some astute moments in capturing the true warehousing experience and the sort of people who populate that world. Overall though just lacking in substance. The ending was weak; it was like the Mike Judge just decided he didn't feel like writing any more so he just kinda dropped everything. The end. 5.2 out of 10

Cute, funny little flick. It won't make you angry or sad, and there are a few laughs if you don't take it seriously.

Not as clever as Office Space but this movie is funny and there are some things about it that are better than Office Space.

Mike Judge and a great cast gave me high expectations, but was kind of dull. I don't think I laughed out loud once. Chuckle funny, if that.

This film is not sure what it is. The parts in the factory are funny and are put together well, however the rest is terrible. The wife character is just hilarious and the direction of the plot outside of the factory theme is awkward at best.

I love Mike Judge, but this is one of his weaker efforts. It just lacks the punch that his other films have. Some funny moments, but overall lacks anything that firmly ties this film together.

A funny movie with a good cast and a decent story.

The first half is absurdly compelling, then it fizzles out.

A lighthearted comedy with a good cast that doesn't take itself too seriously or try to do too much.

Uninspired storytelling is propped up by a cast that's very enjoyable to watch.

I'll admit to being biased but I really enjoyed this simple comedy even if it was missing some of the satire that made Office Space and Idiocracy so fun.

Zero stars. RUBBISH. A selfish, arrogant asshole (Jason Bateman) acts like an asshole and still gets everything he wants in the end. While said asshole treats his wife and other women who come into his life like sex vending machines, and his workers like useless dogs, the audience is expected to find his misadventures amusing and hope for the best. This "comedy" was so classist and sexist it made me want to vomit. If It were possible to give it minus stars I would.

Decent. Some funny moments

The third live-action film from Mike Judge (following "Office Space" and "Idiocracy") is certainly not his best film, but it still has elements of his humor that shine through. I think the issue is that while a lot of little elements to the film work on their own, the collective whole is a bit muddled. Some bits are very funny, others just feel like pointless tangents or filler. Bateman is well cast as the lead, but the Mila Kunis storyline seems to lack something in the end. All in all, I think his first two efforts were stronger concepts, which may be why the end products came out better than this one did...but it still has moments that are still fairly funny.

If I had to describe this movie with a flavor, it would be vanilla. This movie doesn't really stick out. OK, maybe Ben Affleck's hair. For reals, it's terrible. Jason Bateman is my favorite actor, but he mailed this one in.

I would have given it the full 5 stars but I gave it 4.5 because it was going on the path of romantic, and I really wanted more actual romance in the movie... other than that, it was hilarious, excellent acting! Love Mila Kunis &
Jason Bateman!

Mike Judge is always funny to me, especially with a cast like Bateman, Kunis, Affleck, Wiig, Simmons, Simmons, and Koechner. There's kinda some shitty smoke effects when their hitting the bong but if you ask me it's part of the humor. It's not a huge laugh out loud comedy but it's got a good interesting story and it tells a sub plot about the real feelings of people.

I love Jason Bateman as an actor, and while his performance is solid, I am not a big fan of Mike Judge's work. His comedy films in my opinion are love/hate. The humor is very unrealistic, and extreme, and honestly even knowing its a comedy, I do find it too funny. The cast was good, and some of the more well known actors like Mila Kunis, deliver some pretty funny one liners.
Bateman plays the owner of an extract company that makes flavoring. When an accident at the job sends a lawsuit his way, his life starts to fall apart in more ways than one. Again the movie just wasn't complete to me. It had to many silly random moments that didn't seem to fit the plot together. A more of a jumbled mess in my opinion.
