Storyline

Eager to climb the corporate ladder, the nice guy and low-level office drone, Chris, sees his hard work go down the drain when an arrogant and conniving co-worker steals his brilliant idea and lands an important client. Under those circumstances, the tough ex-Marine and determined team-building coach, Storm Rothschild, leads the mismatched office team to a remote tropical island for a mandatory two-day character-building course. However, there, on the secluded haven, whatever can go wrong will go wrong, as ravenous ambition, unpunished rebellion, frail allegiances, and even a ferocious man-eating tiger get in the way of the stranded employees' safe return to civilisation. Does the team have what it takes to survive? Written by Nick Riganas

Totally Awesome
9 January 2015 | by Eric_CubedSee all my reviews

I don't understand all the negative reviews out there. This is a miraculous gem of a movie that achieved the near impossible by eliciting at least half a dozen deep belly laughs by being a very low budget movie starring you know who. I haven't enjoyed a comedy this much since Super Bad and Pineapple Express. It's really funny in a way that Office Space is funny, quirky, dry and with characters just exaggerated enough so we don't forget they are true in the banality of our corporate work lives. There is a stoner character that reminds me a lot of Seth Rogan, so yes the film is not perfect, and it probably did exploit Office Space for some of it's humor, so it's not really original, but in the final analysis, if you like Dilbert you will laugh. If you like Van Damme making fun of a ridiculous caricature of himself you will find this film funny.
