Customer Reviews

The entire movie was vacuous and insipid.
ShelleyNewYork
This is a pretty good movie, the comedy part is just OK but it does make you feel good as you see the characters change.
Kerry G. Stansbury
Its a pity this movie was not shown in more cinema's as it was a story line worth showing and well acted by all.

"From now until the end of time today and everyday shall be know as secretaries day!" Mike (Astin) and Rodney (Vartan) are the best salesmen and Treadstone tire, and they know it. Being rude to everyone has become standard fare until their boss dies. When Ken Castro (Cross), who has been the brunt of their jokes, takes over he immediately demotes them to secretaries. The two realize how they have been and begin to change their ways. I will start by saying that I liked this movie and laughed quite a bit but this is also nothing amazing at all. Very predictable and pretty much a no substance movie but it is worth watching and I liked it. Think "Office Space" but a step above on the absurd scale. There really is nothing to say about this as there is really nothing to it but I again liked it and I think it is worth checking out. Overall, if you liked "Office Space" you will like this. This are worse ways to spend an hour and a half. I give it a B.

Mike Murphy (Sean Astin) and Roddney (Michael Vartan) are two hot shot tire salesmen for the Treadline tire company. They can do no wrong in the eyes of their boss Bob Farrell (Robert Klein). They treat their fellow employees with disrespect and play nasty pranks. When their boss suddenly dies from what appears to be an overdose of lap dances, the office politics change as the brunt of their humor, Ken Castro (David Cross) has become their boss. Rather than fire these two, they are demoted to the secretaries.

After some initial friction things smooth out to where our two bad boys lead an uprising against the constant misuse and sexist attitudes of their bosses. Sara Foster of D.E.B.S. plays Jennifer, the fiancee of Rodney.

The film is crude at times, but compared to others in its genre, it is rather tame. I found the humor to be light and at times forced. The plot is predictable with much the humor is on the immature side. Too much of the movie is filmed inside a restroom.

PARENTAL GUIDE: F-bombs, no sex, male rear nudity (Michael Vartan)

Too bad the good actors in here wasted their time making this movie. I'm sure immature frat boys would love it though.
Everyone else - save your money.

Within the first ten minutes of the movie, the writers rely on humorless jokes involving toilet humor, feces, and bodily functions. This is a portent of an ill-conceived movie that lacks creativity and imagination - and Demoted delivers just that. The entire movie was vacuous and insipid. The other one star reviews here on Amazon are spot on and cover many of the problems with the film.

If you are determined to waste time watching this film, check it out of the public library and spend your money on something worthwhile.

This is worth a watch but the ending is lame and there were some unneeded sexist stereotypes and assumptions. The film would have been perfect w/o that.

This movie is hilarious! The tables are turned on these two guys, in this fun movie. It also shows the harsh disregard men have towards women in clerical roles. Granted it depicts "the old school" way things were, but is still super funny. It also has sensitive moments enveloped in the hilarity. I highly recommend it for a light-hearted evening of comedy.
