Everybody wants to be somebody and Joe Scheffer (Tim Allen) is no exception. But Joe feels like he's a nobody. A talented video specialist at a Minneapolis pharmaceutical company, he regularly has been passed over for a long-promised promotion. And Joe is faring no better in his personal life, as he still pines for ex-wife Callie (Kelly Lynch). But when Joe's parking space is snatched up by a bullying co-worker who then humiliates him in front of his daughter, Joe decides it's time to make a change. A complete makeover brings him newfound success, a striking new look and a quick climb up the corporate ladder. But will Joe's friends and family be able to love the new Joe as much as they loved the old one?

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: A made-for-TV movie dressed up like a feature film. Its plot is not only stale, it's been stale for decades.
Rotten: While never truly funny or insightful, the movie works intermittently by digging a little deeper than you might expect.
Rotten: It doesn't much succeed, but Allen and the bit of acid candor the script does muster do cushion its shortcomings.
Rotten: A formula comedy as affable and ineffectual as its hero.

Intelligent, touching movie
Formulaic it may be, but this movie has a good heart, good writing, and good acting from Tm Allen and Jim Belushi.
