If you’ve already seen Office Space, chances are you’ve watched it at least a dozen times. If you’ve never seen Office Space, you really should at your earliest convenience. Mike Judge‘s scathing satire is a must-see for anyone who’s ever even heard about what it’s like to live in the cubicle jungle as it chronicles the soul-crushing drudgery that comes with working nine to five under florescent lights with startling accuracy and laugh-out-loud humor. The film follows Peter Gibbons (Ron Livingston, never better) as a frustrated IT employee at a software company who leads his fellow co-workers (including Ajay Naidu, David Herman and Stephen Root) in a revolution against bureaucracy and micro-management, embodied by a smarmy vice president (Gary Cole, also never better) and two consultants looking to “prioritize and downsize” (John C. McGinley and Paul Wilson). How can you not love a movie where the characters are inspired to make mischief by Richard Pryor’s computer-tampering shenanigans in the wretched Superman III? Office Space is based on Judge’s Milton animated shorts that appeared on MTV’s Liquid Television (and, later, on Saturday Night Live) in the ’90s; this is his second feature film following the underrated Beavis and Butt-head Do America.
