5.0 out of 5 stars Great satirical comedy - if you hate work watch Office Space!, 14 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Office Space [1999] [DVD] (DVD)
From the creator of Beavis and Butthead comes this very funny, very accurate parody of life in a dotcom IT firm. Remember the year 2000 bug? That's pretty much all Ron Livingston and his co-workers do all day, sit in cubicles and update the notorious 'TPS' report. They've traded their youth for job security: sound familiar? Ron sees a shrink and, after witnessing the sudden death of the psychiatrist, he becomes detached from reality and sees things in a whole new light. His new 'couldn't care less' attitude earns him an unjustified promotion even though his more diligent friends are fired. They decide to take revenge on the firm by skimming the company's bank account electronically. It all goes wrong and they end up facing potential jail time...
Ron Livingston is superb as the job hating lead and there are some unforgettable scenes particularly the wilful, joyous destruction of the hated, random-error generating photocopier.
His slightly mad neighbour 'Laurence' is also a great character: 'hey man! the breast examination program is on TV!' he shouts through the thin dividing wall of the condominium, as Ron is watching Kung Fu with Jennifer Aniston.
Mike Judge's script and screenplay is sublime.
Watch it, it's fantastic! JP ;)
