Delivers the kind of laughs we need right now!
21 November 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Truly bad comedies with horrid acting, bad scripts, faux humor or worse 100% toilet humor are all too common. Enter 'Demoted. Saw the trailer which out of the gate looked to be a funny tale of fish out of water as two top salesman at the Treadline Tire Co. are demoted, by their arch rival, to mere office secretaries.

Having verbally abused the secretarial staff for years our 'heroes' slowly, over time, give this movie 'heart' as they see how the 'other side' lives and works. For example, they were clueless to the fact that women are never promoted to the sales force. That as well as the issue of 'unions' and workers rights blend well as the two 'fish' learn the ways of the pond. The new evil 'boss' Ken Castro is played in awesome fashion by David Cross.

Humor meets 'heart' as our bumpkins are determined to teach a 300+ pound secretary to jog! The toilet/plumbing scene is hilarious. Yes, crude references abound but do not overshadow the mostly funny and heart felt script. Good acting all around. This is one madcap sales force you will enjoy meeting.
