Horrible movie with even worse acting... stay away from this one
I rented this movie because after seeing Luke Wilson in the excellent movie "Bottle Rocket" and the memorable and witty "Home Fries," I thought he would have had enough sense to recognize a good script from a bad one. Apparently not because this movie is a real stinker. Wilson tries to make it work, so I'll give him that much, but Joshua Malina (Bob) is wretched and should've been left out of the movie altogether. Malina tries to act too over-the-top to be funny and none of it works (shades of Elizabeth Berkeley's "Showgirls" performance). The whole movie has a feel of an after-school special - but even worse because there's no point whatsoever. I don't understand the whole pun with the Kinko's Copies (the movie calls it King Co. or something like that). It makes it obvious that this "King Co." is the bad guy. It sounds like it was just put together by some disgruntled Kinko's employees or something. I couldn't even stand to watch the whole movie... I ended up turning it off halfway through because it was so bad. Take my word for it... this movie belongs in the incinerator.
