Tim Allen pulls no punches in the laugh department in this film. When a push-over challenges the office bully to fight, he goes from Joe Nobody to Joe Somebody.

Not something to write home about.

Has the look and feel of an extended sitcom episode.

I'd rather see a whole movie about an aging B-movie actor and forget about all the stuff with Tim...

Talented actors are wasted on bad script.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that the movie has very strong language for a PG, including many words they would not want their children to use. Joe smokes a cigar as an emblem of machismo. Characters drink and there is a scene in a bar. The entire theme of fighting back is very poorly handled. And some kids will be upset by the neglect of Joe's child.
