Movie Summary

Director:
Mike Judge
Released:
1999
Rating:
R

Office Space is a 1999 comedy that has become a modern day comedy cult classic. The film, written and directed by Mike Judge (Beavis and Butthead Do America, Extract), pokes fun at the dreary daily routine of working in a cubicle office environment in a stiflingly boring data analyst day job. The story follows three co-workers and best friends Peter Gibbons (Ron Livingston), Michael Bolton (David Herman), and Samir Nagheenanajar (Ajay Naidu) and how they want to rebel against their greedy boss and horrible job by using a computer program to embezzle money from the company. However, when their plan goes horribly wrong, they must work together to avoid getting caught and ultimately sent to prison. Gary Cole (Pineapple Express) plays their dreadful boss and Jennifer Anniston (Friends, Along Came Polly), who also happens to hate her job, is a new love interest for Livingston's character.
