In this offbeat, hilarious comedy that proves life can always get a little worse, Lisa Kudrow stars as Leslie, a struggling army wife trying to balance work, two out-of-control kids, and a never-ending pile of bills on her own. At her wit's end, she begrudgingly asks her out-of-work brother-in-law, Salman (Scott Prendergast), to move in and lend a hand until her husband comes home. But if dealing with his two rowdy nephews isn't hard enough, Salman also takes a part-time job as the faceless blue corporate mascot for a dying Internet company. Between the boredom, the sweltering heat of his post, and the unique challenges of his "uniform," life for Salman is a constant struggle to maintain his sanity.

Critics Consensus: An effecting treatise on modern alienation, Scott Prendergast's story of a hapless loser who finds recognition by donning a featureless suit is full of whimsy and sorrow.

Short on substance, despite a watchable supporting cast and an amiable overall tenor.

While it borrows from obvious sources, Kabluey eventually comes into its own as a wacky commentary...

Common Sense Says
Dramedy with mature themes is light on substance.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that although this movie features child actors, centers around a family with young children, and even has a costumed character that appeals to children, it's rife with mature themes like infidelity, failure, and abandonment. One young character seems particularly enraged and forlorn and exhibits his frustrations by hitting and throwing objects. There's drinking, lots of swearing, and some partial nudity (though it's not sexual in nature).
