Office Space
Short plot summary

Peter Gibbons (Ron Livingston) works for Initech - he hates it - every day is worse than the day before. If you know how that feels then this movie of revenge on his employers is a treat.

His friends Samir Nagheenanajar (Ajay Naidu) and Michael Bolton (David Herman) help him in this live action, and yet cartoon-type, parody of office cubicle life.

What our panel of critics thought

"I have worked in that office. In my life that stupid bumbling guy who moans about everything was called John. Spot on."

"I am an administrator of a medium sized company. You really must understand how important it is to have plastic covers on reports. Research shows that reports with plastic covers are 15.72% more trusted than ones without."

"The traffic jam at the start of this movie made me cry."

"Perhaps not recommended after a stressful day at the office, this movie could kick off your facial tick again... "

"Drugs really are the only way to survive office cubicle life. Or endless cups of coffee."

Please tell me the ending

The computer virus scam, which is designed by our heroes to steal the fraction of a cent off millions of transactions, is stopped. Our heroes ready themselves for prison...

However, the office burns down so all the evidence is destroyed... They all live happily ever after - our hero works in construction with his neighbor - and, yes, Gibbons gets the girl (Joanna (Jennifer Aniston)).

Dr Bravisimo-Encore II Movie Review

This movie really delivers in the first half, and, whilst the second half is less good, it is OK. This is an OffCom (as opposed to a SitCom or a RomCom). It is highly entertaining in a live action cartoony kind of way, welcome to the hell that is office life...

Quotable quotes (real)

"Take this job and stuff it."

"It's good to be a gangster."

Other comments

A modern classic of its type.
