Clockwatchers ★½ 1997 (PG-13)

Decent cast gets wasted in a slice of life story that goes nowhere. Meek temp Iris's (Collette) new assignment is at a big, faceless credit company. Iris is taken in hand by fellow temps Margaret (Posey), Paula (Kudrow), and Jane (Ubach), who like to complain about how badly they're treated by management. Things gets worse when the company makes an announcement about a rash of petty thefts and the temps get blamed. That's it. 105m/ C VHS, DVD . Toni Collette, Parker Posey, Lisa Kudrow, Alanna Ubach, Stanley DeSantis, Jamie Kennedy, David James Elliott, Kevin Cooney, Bob Balaban, Paul Dooley; D: Jill Sprecher; W: Jill Sprecher, Karen Sprecher; C: Jim Denault.
