Anyone who has been a temporary office drone should find laughs and points of identification within this wry little comedy of manners.

Haiku Tunnel, for all its limitations, has a mysterious power I found almost comforting.

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

Kornbluth has adapted his stage monologue into a ragtag charmer.

It's only occasionally funny, it's exceedingly aimless, and the newly added subsidiary personalities have no substance.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

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.

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

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

Amiable, intelligent and a bit lumpy -- just like its main character.

This movie didn't just remind me of my own nightmare temp days from years ago, but it made me laugh uproariously.

Almost from the beginning, it's obvious that Haiku Tunnel is a 40-minute short that imagines itself as a feature film.
| Original Score: 1/5

This is satire on the giddy level of The Simpsons.

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

Sure to strike a power chord with the millions of secretaries, office assistants and other white-collar grunts.
