After eleven years of writing, shooting, re-shooting and editing, Michael is finally ready to present his long-awaited action movie, "Threat Level Midnight", to his coworkers and love interest Holly. But is he ready for their reactions?
Based on the popular British series of the same name, this faster-paced American version follows the daily interactions of a group of idiosyncratic office employees via a documentary film crew's cameras.
Regional manager Michael thinks he's the coolest, funniest, best boss ever - which, of course, makes him the uncoolest, most obnoxious and annoying boss as far as his staff is concerned. His co-worker Jim lusts after engaged receptionist Pam when he's not sabotaging his cube-mate, the know-it-all Dwight.
Ryan Howard is a young, smart, self-possessed temp, who quickly figures out the real office politics despite Michael's attempts to instill the official point-of-view.
