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,
"Complex characterization makes Clockwatchers a far more interesting picture than it would have been as a simple, breezy comedy."
‑ Nick Davis, Nick's Flick Picks
"This keenly observed and darkly comic indie is named for a quartet of office temps who toil at Global Credit while receiving no credit of their own."
‑ Rob Nelson, Nashville Scene
"Like the unrelenting Musack that fills the heroines's offices, Clockwatchers is a bit too sedate. If you don't watch carefully, you'll miss half the fun."
‑ 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
