"Two Thumbs Up!" -- Siskel and Ebert
Clockwatchers is the critically acclaimed gal-pal comedy about four office temps trying to maintain both their sanity and upward mobility. The four young women - shy Iris (Toni Collette), brash Margaret (Parker Posey), wannabe starlet Paula (Lisa Kudrow) and pampered Jane (Alanna Ubach) - become fast friends while temping at a big company where looking busy is a full time occupation. But when their boss hires a new assistant, their jobs - and their friendship - are suddenly in danger. Marking the smash debut of writer/director Jill Sprecher and co-screenwriting sister Karen Sprecher, and featuring the neo-swing music of Mader and Joey Altruda, it's a smart wry Working Girl for a post-modern world!
