Film Threat

Not badly done, but overshadowed by the superior (and better funded) Office Space
| Original Score: 3/5

A bit of an ego-trip, but an entertaining one.
| Original Score: 3/5

No Japanese poetry or actual tunnels were used in the making of this film, [just] some pretty clever writing and directing

A sort of stylized, abstract companion piece to Mike Judge's very hilarious Office Space -- a warm, witty and original comedy.

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

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

In their low-budget, indie-film way, the Kornbluth brothers have come up with a modest, modern-day equivalent of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.

Film Freak Central

ultimately just a little too ingratiating.

Kornbluth is funny, but not funny enough to carry his feature comedy.
Joe Baltake
Sacramento Bee
October 15, 2001
It starts off disarming and charming but grows tedious in its fastidious attention to meaningless details.
Shawn Levy
October 9, 2001
Affords an agreeable -- if slight and brief -- chuckle at disagreeable aspects of our modern lives.
Top Critic
Louis B. Parks
Houston Chronicle
October 9, 2001
A low-budget, mild-mannered comedy, often amusing and at times laugh-out-loud funny.
Jim Lane
Sacramento News & Review
October 8, 2001
Nothing but a boring, amateurish vanity production.

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

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.

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

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

Kornbluth, with his softly discombobulated rage, makes you want to see more of him.

Internet Reviews
September 21, 2001
An over-the-top, yet dead-on, office comedy that rings true even when it's the most exaggerated

Josh and Jacob Kornbluth emerge intact from their first filmmaking venture and score more hits than misses.
