Critic Reviews for Head Office

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

It's a lamebrained movie, without much sense in its construction.

October 27, 2015 | Full Review…

The structure here is a bit like '50s social comedies but there's no satiric force, just chutzpah and energy. The movie confuses iconoclasm with wit, and bile with guts; it's mostly thin and mean-spirited.

October 27, 2015 | Full Review…

Though corporate satire has been out of vogue for a while, it's ready for a revival. But while ''Head Office'' has its moments, it winds up much too understated to have a cutting edge.

October 27, 2015 | Full Review…

Sadly Reinhold fails to be funny enough to carry the movie and the only sparky moments are down to support characters Don Novello and Richard Masur.

October 27, 2015 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

A needle in a haystack would be easier to find than a laugh in this film--which is surprising, considering that the cast includes such names as DeVito, Moranis, Novello, Doyle-Murray, and Shawn.

October 27, 2015 | Full Review…

Tries to be funny and satirical but misses the mark more often than not.

Audience Reviews for Head Office


Although there were many really funny scenes, there were also a bunch of unfunny scenes too, and sometimes the film didn't look like it was edited right or something. Overall, it's pretty good, but it could have been better. At least it has a good cast.
