When underappreciated video specialist Joe Scheffer is brutally humiliated by the office bully Mark McKinney in front of his daughter, Joe begins a quest for personal redemption. He proceeds by enduring a personal make-over and takes martial arts lessons from a B-action star. As news spreads of his rematch with Mark, Joe suddenly finds himself the center of attention, ascending the corporate ladder and growing in popularity. He's determined to show everyone in his life that he is not a nobody, but a force to be reckoned with.Written by
Half-way through the shooting of the martial arts shots, Tim Allen's arms became painfully bruised. This is why he randomly starts wearing pads in the middle of the story. See more »
When Joe is helping staple the banner up, he staples his sleeve to the board. He pulls it away pulling the banner off but his sleeve is still stapled. When we cut back to Joe, he is not stapled anymore (and there hasn't been enough time for him to do anything about it). See more »
That's Mark McKinney! He's a seven-year employee. W-what's he doing in the ten-year lot?
Maybe he's gonna stand around for another three years.

Contains all the successful elements for family movie
This is an excellent family movie, if you have the disc you will want to watch it a second time in a day or two. It is worth having in your collection, you will want to go back to it time and time again.
Tim Allen is lovable and does an excellent performance. Julie Bowen also excellent and lovable. The supporting actors and direction were superb.
A great underdog movie turning top-dog with a couple scenes that were stretching the imagination. (please excuse the cliché's they are unavoidable.)
To make this review submission-able I have to add this last line. I think it deserves a better score than 5.5
