September 14, 2001
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.
October 8, 2001
Nothing but a boring, amateurish vanity production.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
October 15, 2001
It starts off disarming and charming but grows tedious in its fastidious attention to meaningless details.
September 13, 2001
Eventually becomes less like a comedy and more like a guy working out his neuroses in front of a camera while we pay $8 to watch.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

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

September 13, 2001
It wouldn't seem very funny even if 1999's Office Space ... didn't exceedingly outpace it in laughs.
September 13, 2001
Almost from the beginning, it's obvious that Haiku Tunnel is a 40-minute short that imagines itself as a feature film.

A funny movie, but like 'Josh' himself, it's too self-absorbed, and maybe too nice, for its own good.
September 27, 2001
As 'Josh's' story wears on, so does one's patience.

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

Kornbluth is funny, but not funny enough to carry his feature comedy.
September 30, 2001
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.

Without Woody Allen in the cast, this movie is afflicted with tunnel vision.

September 13, 2001
There is one funny moment in this movie.
September 14, 2001
Amazingly amateurish, the film lands wide of satirical targets that should be impossible to miss.

September 14, 2001
Simultaneously admirable and somewhat tedious; you want to like it, but it's tough because it is a curiously flat enterprise.
September 14, 2001
It's only occasionally funny, it's exceedingly aimless, and the newly added subsidiary personalities have no substance.

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

October 4, 2001
This story of a temp worker who panics when offered a chance to 'go perm' has a unique comic vision.
