Movie Review: Demoted

My (now ex) boyfriend and I rented this from Redbox. It was his choice because he loves David Cross (from Arrested Development). I would have never picked a movie that I’d never heard of!

From Rotten Tomatoes: For Mike (Astin) and Rodney (Vartan), life is good at the Treadline Tire Company. As topline salesmen, they strut through the cubicles, taunt smarmy underling Ken “Don’t Call Me Kenny!” Castro (Cross), hold court at their exclusive lunch room table, and cavort at strip clubs with their boss Bob Farrell (Klein). But when Farrell’s unexpected “departure” puts Castro in charge, the guys find themselves demoted and demoralized. Now the target of harassment from the higher ups, Mike and Rodney – with the help of their fellow secretaries – will not only come to appreciate how everyone contributes to the success of a small business, but just might find a way to knock ol’ Kenny down a peg or two in the process, proving revenge is best served cold just like office coffee.

There are no reviews or scores for this movie on my favorite websites because it went straight to DVD! Yuck.

Verdict: 3 out of 5 stars. It wasn’t quite as awful as I thought it would be but it wasn’t so terrible I stopped watching it. I may have laughed once or twice. Ron White as Sean Astin’s boss was probably the best part.
