Jason Bateman, Mila Kunis, Ben Affleck, Kristen Wiig, Clifton Collins, and J.K. Simmons star in writer/director Mike Judge's comedy about a flower-extract plant owner contending with an ever-growing avalanche of personal and professional disasters. An employee at the factory has just suffered an unfortunate accident on the assembly line, but little does the put-upon owner realize that things are about to get much worse. As the injured employee threatens to sue and it begins to look like his company will be bought out, the frazzled owner attempts to catch the culprit responsible for stealing wallets from the coat room and begins to suspect that his wife is sleeping with the gigolo he hired to seduce her. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
The only thing even remotely entertaining about this very stupid movie was Nathan, the obnoxious neighbor. And I loved the two movies it was compared to: "Office Space" and "Adaption". This one? Not even close.
It is unbelievable how bad this movie is. I love Jason Bateman and while he's always fun to watch, between Affleck's one-dimensional performance and the yawn-worthy storyline, it was hard to like. The only accomplishment is having somehow made Mila Kunis's character unlikeable AND unsympathetic. They all deserved to be in a better movie than this one.
