In director John Pasquin's comedy, Joe Scheffer (Tim Allen) is humiliated when office bully Mark McKinney (Patrick Warburton) punches him out in the company parking lot. Determined to win back his dignity, Joe learns karate and challenges McKinney to a fight. His boldness impresses his co-workers and even his bosses -- but Joe soon must weigh the allure of his newfound status against the love and respect of those who liked him as he was.

Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that the movie has very strong language for a PG, including many words they would not want their children to use. Joe smokes a cigar as an emblem of machismo. Characters drink and there is a scene in a bar. The entire theme of fighting back is very poorly handled. And some kids will be upset by the neglect of Joe's child.
