Mike Judge's latest venture is no Office Space, but, come on, what is? I still liked this movie. It wasn't funny throughout but it was still very funny.
Jason Bateman plays Joel, the owner of Reynolds Extract company. The factory floor is full of idiocracy and laziness and people who just plain don't understand a workforce mentality. Joel is stuck in a sexless marriage with his wife Suzie (Kristen Wiig) and a friend who constantly pushes drugs upon him, Dean (Ben Affleck). The rest of his life consists of talkative neighbors (David Koechner), temps who aren't what they seem (Mila Kunis) and Gene Simmons. While trying to handle a buyout of their company, an accident takes out one of his best employees. That's where Joel's trainwreck next few days begin.
It may not be as humorous to other people as it was to me, but I still had a really fun time watching this. Like I said, it may not be Office Space, but anything can be better than Idiocracy. Jason Bateman really makes or breaks this movie. If you like the style and tempo in his humor, and I do, than I suggest this movie. If not, than this might not be up your alley.
