It's 'The Office' for idiots.
7 August 2016 | by Khun Kru MarkSee all my reviews

Another horrible idea that tries (belatedly) to cash in on the success of the office... and doesn't. In fact, this one probably borders on copyright infringement!

And again... another idea that could have been really funny with a rich vein of possible classic situations and gags but is instead content to rip off The Office everywhere it can, assuming that because David Brent is a woman, the audience won't notice.

The secret filming of the break-room is there, the office phone sound effects are there, the geeky guy is there, the macho warehouse staff (baggage handlers) are there, the childish office games are there, the on-camera confessionals are there...

In one scene a drug smuggler openly and successfully tries to bribe a border guard ON CAMERA!

Add to that the characters are simply too stupid to be likable and there's nothing left to tune in for. In fact, even the characters in the FAKE situation comedy "When the whistle blows!", also by Ricky Gervais, are better fleshed out and more likable than this cast of infantile twits.

About the only bright spot is the appeal of actress Liz Kingsman whose character in this stinker is buried in this imitation comedy. Simply put, this is just horrible.

The final line of dialog sums up how I feel about this! ;)
