Close Encounters of the Office Kind
I had the pleasure of seeing this at the Florida Film Festival this past weekend. Clever and witty, with a fantastic cast. There are touches of Office Space, but it's unfair to compare it too closely. This is an office all it's own, and the humor is in a whole other universe.
Jonathon M Woodward, who plays Brian, is Bill Murray reincarnated. His voice, his mannerisms, his comic timing, all of them are positively brilliant. Sam Levine, as Brian's sidekick, has brilliant timing, and completely steals the scenes he is in.
The scenes between Angela Bettis and Jonathon M Woodward are some of the greatest emotional scenes, whether they be funny or sweet. Angela has a very real stage presence, and a perfectly wicked grin. Just entirely too much fun to watch on screen.
Great humor, great cast, great soundtrack. You'll love it. Get thee to a film festival and watch it!
