It’s not that Jenna Fischer is miscast in “A Little Help.’’ It’s that she’s mis-everything else: misused, misdirected, misanthropic. Under other circumstances, she could play a stressed-out, freshly widowed dental hygienist with little objection from me. Under these circumstances, I’d rather be anywhere else. She’s unlike the passive women she usually plays, such as Pam on “The Office.’’ And yet there’s no pleasure in watching Fischer scream at, say, Chris O’Donnell or a barking dog or the actor who plays her 11-year-old-son, since she’s screaming with little wit or emotional cause.
