Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"You just want to shake these four twits out of their collective, weirdly unsubstantiated malaise."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"Expertly captures the drudgery of 9-5 office gigs"
‑ Jon Niccum, Lawrence Journal-World
"A jewel of a film."
‑ Dustin Putman,
"Insightful and well-acted comedy of inter-office angst."
‑ Scott Weinberg,

‑ Nick Davis, Nick's Flick Picks

‑ Carlo Cavagna,
"A bold drama about the strange and often outrageous things that happen in the work-a-day world."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"A gem of a small movie."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
