Joe Somebody | 2001
Everybody wants to be somebody and Joe Scheffer is no exception. But Joe feels like he's a nobody. A talented specialist at work, he's been regularly passed over for promotion. And Joe is faring no better in his personal life, as he still pines for ex-wife Callie. Things for Joe go from "ordinary" to worse when he endures a cruel embarrassment at the hands of office bully Mark McKinney. The incident spurs Joe to embark on a quest for redemption, or at the very least a rematch. The first step: martial arts instruction. Next: a makeover that reaps unexpected dividends. As news spreads of the rematch, Joe makes an unexpected ascent up the corporate ladder. But his daughter Natalie makes it clear she liked her dad the way he was. Also unimpressed with Joe's transformation is plucky Meg Harper, who's sparked Joe's romantic interest. As the showdown with the once-feared colleague nears, Joe is determined to show Meg, Natalie - everybody - that this one-time nobody is now a somebody to be reckoned with.
