A decade after Office Space, writer/director Mike Judge salutes Labor Day with a new workplace comedy about blue-collar incompetence.
Jason Bateman stars as the owner of a flavor-extract factory employing a staff of dunces. While he deals with his passionless marriage and his lust for a sly new hire, a worker’s oddball accident threatens to ruin the company’s future. The farcical plot is anchored by Judge’s keen sense of workaday humor and a gallery of memorable losers, topped by Ben Affleck’s loony, long-haired slacker.
