Storyline

The Jeffers Corporation is a world success, endorsed by the U.S. President, pitching productivity and happy talk. George is a third level employee, supervising three or four others. Around the world, people are exploding as the stress of denying feelings takes its toll. The Jeffers' response: mind control. George and his wife are miserable: he's impotent with occasional fits of infantile pique. She's reading a book on happiness, trying everything. His brother, released from prison, starts of freedom-of-expression movement in George's backyard. Plus there's Charisma, a woman from Level Four who sends him paperwork - with smiley faces. Can George connect? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Zach Galifianakis is the reason I wanted to see this film and was the reason I enjoyed it...
20 June 2008 | by lafinnegan-1See all my reviews

I enjoy the unknown. That which is so cleverly left out invokes thought and wonder that makes this movie thoroughly enjoyable. I felt actively engaged with the multifaceted story and development of the characters. Even the characters that were mentioned and not seen kept me hoping for a glimpse, yet served a brilliant critique by being absent. This film is for those who enjoy satire and are willing to cheaply laugh at simple repetitious witticisms and the occasional human foible. The vast absurdities which the characters are blind to are blatantly ridiculous. The movie has a simple message that serves a sweet ending to the fun that has been had and though the tribulations of George were at times harsh, the humor reigns supreme. A feel good film that I hope you get the chance to try.
