CLOCKWATCHERS (1997 , Jill Sprecher



Whether boring , exciting or dramatic this movie may be , Clockwatchers deliver tons of laughter in the beginning of the film as the main characters struggle in their work , but somewhere in the middle of the movie you will notice the conflict , the mistrust and unhappiness among its central characters

The main characters have portrayed the internal issue of the film , and that is to be clock watchers ‘ one main reason is because of work stereotype , temps ‘ being alienated by perms ‘ Well that [banner_entry_middle]
