Written and directed by Mike Judge, the creator of Beavis and Butthead, this comedy stars Ron Livingston as Peter Gibbons, a stressed out office junior who decides that he's had enough of the working life. Deciding to spend more time with his sexy waitress girlfriend (Jennifer Aniston), he rarely goes into work, and when he does he just plays computer games and insults his boss. But rather than getting fired, Peter gets praise and added responsibility, so he decides to go one step further and, together with his beleaguered colleagues, sets about defrauding the company.
Office Space is a movie for anyone who's ever spent eight hours in a "Productivity Bin", had to endure a smarmy, condescending boss, had worries about layoffs, or just had the urge to demolish a temperamental printer or fax machine. Peter (Ron Livingston) spends the day doing stupefyingly dull computer work in a cubicle. He goes home to an apartment sparsely furnished by IKEA and Target, then starts for a maddening commute to work again in the morning.
His co-workers in the cube farm are an annoying lot, his boss is a snide, patronising jerk, and his days are consumed with tedium. In desperation, he turns to career hypnotherapy, but when his hypno-induced relaxation takes hold, there's no shutting it off. Layoffs are in the air at his corporation and with two colleagues (both of whom are slated for the chute) he devises a scheme to skim funds from company accounts. The scam soon snowballs, however, throwing the three into a panic until the unexpected happens and saves the day.
A little bit like a US version of The Office, director Mike (King of the Hill) Judge's debut movie is a spot-on look at work in corporate America circa 1999. With well-drawn characters and situations instantly familiar to the white-collar milieu, he captures the joylessness of many a cube denizen's work life perfectly. Jennifer Aniston, a waitress at Chotchkie's, a generic beer-and-burger joint, plays Peter's love interest and Diedrich Bader has a minor but hilarious turn as Peter's moustached, long-haired, drywall-installin' neighbour. --Jerry Renshaw

From the word go, we see how mundane his job is, from the annoying lady next door saying the same phrase over and over again on the telephone, to Lumbergh having a go at him for not doing his TPS reports correctly, and we soon find Milton annoying him too - it would make anyone flip! When he goes to a hypnotherapist - he finds his nirvana - and decides to take control of his life.
When he finds himself in typical office bureaucracy, he decides enough is enough and takes drastic revenge tactics, with an interesting outcome.
I really enjoyed Office Space, Ron Livingston is great, and his supporting cast is superb, even Milton can crack you up, and there's even a cameo from John C McGinley - Scrubs' Doctor Cox. The whole satire of the movie just works, it's funny even though it's got little direction. Mike Judge - creator of King Of The Hill and Beavis and Butthead has made a classic comedy without probably realising it.
The DVD doesn't have any extras, so I'd suggest waiting for the blu-ray release, which is already in the US, so it shouldn't be too long before we're treated to it too.
Worth every penny, buy this, you'll come back to it, I know I have, and I pre-ordered it back in 2003.
However, even in the right format the film was still boring and not funny.
If you've ever worked in an office this is the ultimate dull reality meets secret fantasy, it plays out the scenario that a lot of people have had in their head of how things could work out if they stopped getting stressed and stopped caring.
Great script, great acting and a number of moments which have become part of modern culture. Hey.... if Family Guy do a parody of a scene you've made it right?
