Office Space


A stressed-out programmer gets hynotised and relaxes -- seriously -- to the point of apathy. This does not stop him making waves at work. When he is about to be promoted and his buddies fired, they decide to commit a bit of computer crime. This plan succeeds too well, creating a serious problem for them. Along the way his girlfriend dumps him and he falls for a local waitress. The film is mainly a poke at life in modern corporates, and the stupidy with which they are run.

Visitor Comments

Ian Douglas: Meant to be a comedy, but laughs are few. More like a Mad Magazine exposé of life in the office. The romance is a really minor part of the story.

Andre Swanepoel: Quite disappointing.

James Billingsley: Come on people! This movie was a masterpiece! I guess you have to be in the audience that it appeals to -- the corporate world.
