Everybody reading this, I am going to tell you right off the bat, that this is a great family film that needs to be bought. Now for the review:
Tim Allen stars as a divorced father named Joe who is beat up at work in front of his daughter by the corporate bully at his job. But he decides to fight back! So he goes to a martial arts studio and enlists the help of an ex movie star played by Jim Belushi whose work in the K-9 movies (except part one which bored me to death K-9 1-1 and K-9: P.I. were great, made me want to see the movie more). Along the way he falls for the sweet girl at work. Will he fight or won't he?
I will not say more about this movie, because I am known to spoil the plots to movies so this is a movie you just have to rent or buy and watch in its entirety with your entire family, except the little ones (probably ages 5-8) because of the language (there are some objectionable phrases especially from his daughter). Anyway, this is great fun for everybody. Check it out!

Joe Somebody is a pretty good family movie. movie is about an average Joe played by Tim Allen who gets zero respect from his peers and work buddies. after 10 years with the same company, he wasn't given the promotion he wanted, and after getting beaten up and embarassed in front of his daughter and co-workers, he decides to take a stand, and get back what he lost in the parking lot.
i LOVE Belushi's character, Chuck Scarett. he's a former actor who had one good movie, and then his career tanked. he now teaches karate, and as he says, 90 percent of his business comes from people who got their butts kicked. i love the interaction between the Allen and Belushi character.
overall, solid and very enjoyable movie about your average Joe who wants to be somebody.
also includes some special features with a HILARIOUS deleted scene from Belushi's character.
good movie. good father's day present.

I had to say that I enjoyed that movie. I came across it many times and I both rented and bought it. I wanted to see Tim Allen in more than the ones we've seen before. I admired him for many years and months since The Santa Clause and Toy Story franchise. From looking at the filmography, I see that he's more of a TV actor. I recalled my mom seeing it on tv onto a scene where he and Patrick Warburton were competing against each other while shopping at Target and I was like "I know what your watching." Thumbs up

You have to stand up for the things that matter most. Something that's often easier to say than to do, as Joe Scheffer struggles with in this romantic comedy! Thanks to Tim Allen's unique personality this film comes across with much more humor than the typical rom-com. You can't help but to root for and associate with at least one of the many characters that make this movie such and enjoyable film to watch... Are you the daughter, watching those around you behave in incongruent ways? The achieving and loveable woman who sees people for who they are, rather than who society says they are? Or are you Joe himself, constantly battling between what's right, and what's yours? A little something for everyone with a little Jim Belushi thrown in to put the fun in funny!

This movie was so, so in my opinion. I just did not think it was all that good. Tim Allen is this nerdy guy who gets bullied by a co-worker out of his parking place, then is beat up in front of his daughter. Then this campaign begins with co-workers betting on him in a match with the bully, all the while Tim Allen is being roughly trained in self defense/martial arts, by Jim Bullushi. . I found it hard to believe too, that this nerdy guy would have two beautiful women wanting him even though he is divorced.

I love this movie. It is a great lesson for my two boys who are 12 and 15.
Being a Tim Allen/Belushi film it does have its silly moments and goofy Scenes. But Bowen And Panatierre's Characters Bring Depth To The Film. ALL In All A Lighthearted Film With A Seriously Good Message.

It was alright, not as good as I expect it to be, but the plot was real nice. A bully at work parks in Joe's parking place, but Joe couldn't do anything about it unfortunately expect get into shape to fight the bully off

This movie does a great job of mixing comedy with serious themes. Divorce, anger, humiliation, and revenge are just some of the issues this great family flick confronts while managing to keep humor involved.
Tim Allen plays a divorced man who is humiliated in front of his daughter; he is slapped around like a Tanya Harding husband in the company parking lot. At first, the humiliation drives him into seclusion, but after a visit from the human resources lady he decides to tackle the situation head-on; he challenges his abuser to a second confrontation.
The movie becomes even more hysterical when Jim Belushi steps in to help Tim Allen's character learn martial arts for the upcoming battle.
I loved this movie, and you will love it too! Trust me.
See ya next review.
