Audience Reviews for Joe Somebody

  • Jul 13, 2017
    Innocuous romcom trifle with serious underpinnings: how to handle a personal attack at the workplace. Could have gone deep but avoided that for predictable small screen resolutions. Is "it's inoffensive" a recommendation? Ho-hum.

    Saw it in the theater, only one in there. Movie drags, Tim Allen movies have very little mojo but he always give good performances.

    Very oddly plotted and thought out, but it has points that make you chuckle, and other points where you want to punch yourself in the face! Both ways are very balanced out, therefore, I sort of liked it I guess!

    Joe...Schmo. Average, Predictable and half-boring movie. Good cast though
