Surprise Hit
19 September 2017 | by robertjford83See all my reviews

I was not expecting much from this movie but it is fantastic! It reminds me of Office Space, and I'm surprised this is not a cult classic, as it is hilarious in parts.

Demoted's premise is fairly obvious, it revolves around the two protagonists, Mike & Rodney, who are believable and do a fine job. But for me, Kenny ("it's Ken!") steals the show. All the best jokes/ scenarios were based around him, and I would say he is the best casting of the movie.

The jokes do slow down/ wear thin in places, and some characters/ scenes I question their inclusion. I think with a better script, Demoted could have been an absolute belter, but as it is, it's still a top notch comedy. I'm giving it 7/10. Perfect to watch when you've had a bad day at the office!
