About the Movie
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.
Fresh: Kornbluth, with his softly discombobulated rage, makes you want to see more of him.
Fresh: Kornbluth has adapted his stage monologue into a ragtag charmer.
Rotten: It wouldn't seem very funny even if 1999's Office Space ... didn't exceedingly outpace it in laughs.
Love this movie
This movie slays me, this has got to be one of the funniest movies no one seems to have heard of. I've watched it multiple times; it's especially good if you're feeling down and need a laugh. And of course it's set in the greatest city ever, San FrancLisco!
Could almost be a documentary!
I've worked at a large law-firm for nearly a decade and so much of this movie rings true. I was introduced to this movie when the secretaries, paralegals, and IT staff had a "movie day" at the office and all we watched this in a conference room. We were all roaring with laughter throughout and identifying with the characters. It was more therapeutic than the free psych therapy services the firm provided as employee perks. And yes, attornies really do like their speakerphones! If anyone in your life has ever worked at a law-firm, this film is a must see!
