Some tires just doesn't spring a leak...

Well, "Demoted" wasn't bad, but it wasn't a whole lot of laughs either. That being said, then it must be said that the movie was actually good, nonetheless, as it had a very nice and warming story to tell.

"Demoted" is about top sales guys Mike (played by Sean Astin) and Rodney (played by Michael Vartan) working at Treadline Tires, and they are living the sweet, easy life, that is up until their boss drops dead from a heart attack, and the office 'joke' Ken Castro (played by David Cross) takes over the company. The two head ponchos find themselves demoted to secretaries, and have to deal with being lower on the corporate ranking of Treadline Tires.

Initially, I had expected more laughs from this movie, but still, I was thoroughly entertained, as the storyline was great and well executed. And the movie had some really nicely drawn out characters with lots of personality and variety. It was sort of a movie that goes to prove that the 'underdog' can achieve great things as well, and you don't have to be at the very top of the corporate line in order to be successful or in order to make a difference.

"Demoted" had some nice performances by the various actors and actresses. I personally enjoyed seeing David Cross in the role of Ken Castro, he was just great and really brought some great comedy to the movie.

As for a comedy of this caliber, then "Demoted" really doesn't bring anything new to the genre, nor does it play out anything that haven't been seen before. So it is basically straight out of the drawer material here. But it does work out well enough, especially if you enjoy these types of comedies.

A secret gem of a film

Upon stumbling across this film on Netflix and knowing Michael Vartan from Alias I thought I'd give this a go - very glad I did. Not only was it a solid comedy film, but it had some heart too.

The key lies in a situation a lot of people can relate to. The annoying guy at work, the differences between different jobs and ultimately the redeeming quality of revenge. I haven't laughed so much since American Pie (showing my age) but it's a very good film with solid, funny writing and situational comedy. The acting is admirable, especially the comic timing from Vartan, and it's simply a fun film to watch.

If you like Office Space, then I'm sure you'll enjoy this too.

Unfunny,Uncomfortable,Unbelievably Unfunny Utter WASTE!

I can't believe garbage like this is still seeping out of Hollywood. It's 2012....act like it movie makers! We see you,we know who you are and we're not likely to forget the anguish you've inflicted!

This is a movie about two men that are uncomfortable insecure and unfunny and it lasts for over six hours,that's counting some recovery time. Why can't Hollywood directors find a test audience that isn't packed with immature fame worshipers so they can learn the truth about their "work" before they release it on the innocent public?

Michael Vartan does a senseless and desperate pasty naked ass scene at the end of this torture.(need I say more)Why bother,why! It's so obviously desperate and contrived you just want it to be over. Who ever thought this painful scene up should be forced to watch old Alf shows for a week.

I have to blame the director for this utter waste because all of the actors were equally self conscious and terrible,but the director actually directed them to say their awful lines with those stupid looks on their faces. One painful scene after another with good actors doing unbelievably terrible acting,I couldn't believe my eyes. What a waste!
