Based upon Matt Thorne's award-winning novel about life in a call centre, "Eight Minutes Idle" is a warped urban comedy about what it really means to put your life 'on hold'! Dan Thomas has always taken the path of least resistance - in his work life, home life and love life! But when Dan finds himself kicked out of the family home, he's faced with no option but to secretly move into the call centre where he works. Suddenly, everything that he's previously taken for granted - a well-stocked fridge, clean clothes, his friends, his self respect, even his beloved cat - are either disappearing or conspiring against him. As Dan's work/life balance spirals dangerously out of control, he's forced to break out of old habits and to dare to do something he has never had to do before - really care about someone other than himself.

Office Space with a sweet romantic side, and a UK swing.
How are more people not talking about this movie? This is a solid story with a fantastic cast told so well that I still can not believe it is a kickstarter project. There is a lot of the magic that was Office Space in here, and all the great laughs you would expect, then there is just the sweetest love story sewn into that movie as well as a really good side story running throughout that is like The Terminal with Tom Hanks. Poor John. I really Enjoyed this movie, I think that this is going to be a bigger hit once word gets out, and I recommend this movie to everyone with a beating heart, and the love of laughter. It's from the UK so you know the humour is a bit more adult, but there is really nothing besides a bit of sex, and nudity. If you have ever worked in a call centre, you will feel right at home.
