David Cross is back with ‘Demoted‘ that comes out on blu-ray/dvd next week, and here’s some funny clips from the movie that compares itself to ‘Office Space‘ and ‘9 to 5‘. That’s some pretty big shoes to fill!
Anything that has David Cross in it has got my attention, and with his big ole mug standing out on Anchor Bay’s blu-ray/dvd art for ‘Demoted’, I’m hoping this is as funny as you expect from him. Michael Vartan (Alias) and Sean Astin (Lord Of the Rings) are in this one too so it’ll be interesting to see how a film that has the balls to say it’s up there with ‘Office Space‘ plays out. Keep you eyes open tomorrow, as we’ll have a chance for a couple of you to win blu-ray copies of the film. Also, if you’re so inclined, you can send over a review of the film that we’ll post on here! We just love giving you our stuff!
Demoted Movie Synopsis
Fusing the corporate shenanigans of 9 TO 5 with OFFICE SPACE, and in the same vein as HORRIBLE BOSSES, DEMOTED boasts a star-studded ensemble cast including Michael Vartan (“Hawthorne,” “Alias”), Oscar® nominated actor Sean Astin (The Lord of the Rings trilogy), Celia Weston (Observe and Report), Sara Foster (“90210,” The Big Bounce), Cleo King (Pineapple Express, “Mike and Molly,”), Ron White (Horrible Bosses, Blue Collar Comedy Tour), Robert Klein (Reign Over Me) and Emmy® award winner David Cross (“Arrested Development,” “Modern Family”).
For Mike (Astin) and Rodney (Vartan), life is good at the Treadline Tire Company. As topline salesmen, they strut through the cubicles, taunt smarmy underling Ken “Don’t Call Me Kenny!” Castro (Cross), hold court at their exclusive lunch room table, and cavort at strip clubs with their boss Bob Farrell (Klein). But when Farrell’s unexpected “departure” puts Castro in charge, the guys find themselves demoted and demoralized.
Now the target of harassment from the higher ups, Mike and Rodney – with the help of their fellow secretaries – will not only come to appreciate how everyone contributes to the success of a small business, but just might find a way to knock ol’ Kenny down a peg or two in the process, proving revenge is best served cold….just like office coffee.

Yup, the name says it all, and I love doing whatever I can to help out at Best Movies Ever whether it's learning drag etiquette from Miss Sashay to keeping our image galleries updated. But what I really love is writing about the action films and sci fi as I'm a huge geek and love my job! Female movie geeks apply anytime.
