Plot Summary

There are a million temps in the naked city, but Josh Kornbluth (Josh Kornbluth) is the best. He always shows up for work on time, has a Talmudic mastery of Microsoft Word, and only steals office supplies when he absolutely has to. Sent on a new assignment to a huge downtown law firm, at the end of his very first day Josh is asked the question he's always feared the most: Will he go "perm?" It's an offer he can't refuse (they'll cover his therapy!), so for the first time in his life, Josh goes perm. But when his new boss, the mysterious Bob Shelby (Warren Keith), gives him 17 important letters to mail, Josh just can't seem to do it. Clearly, this lifelong temp is having a tough time going perm. And clearly, at some point the White-Out is going to hit the fan.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Almost from the beginning, it's obvious that Haiku Tunnel is a 40-minute short that imagines itself as a feature film. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: Kornbluth, with his softly discombobulated rage, makes you want to see more of him. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Sep 7, 2011

Fresh: Kornbluth has adapted his stage monologue into a ragtag charmer. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Nov 24, 2006

Rotten: Watching a guy not mail 17 very important letters for sequence after sequence makes you want to conspire with his boss to have Josh accidentally electrocuted by office machinery. – Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 24, 2010
