Summary: A goofy tale from cubicleland
In this age of Dilbert it only makes sense that there would be movies based on the same theme of the dreadful stupidity of office politics and life in the cubes. Office Space is very funny in many places, but not overly original; a lot of it is too much like Dilbert, and the main plot is taken from Richard Pryor's scheme in Superman III; in fact, the characters themselves frequently mention that film, I guess in a way asking our forgiveness. Nonetheless, it's a very cute movie and worth seeing.

Summary: Office dweller must-see
Humor is better if it's relevant to the more obscure parts of your life. As a Silicon Valley cubicle-dwelling computer nerd, I found Office Space incredibly hilarious. Who cares about the acting, story, or (cough) effects? LOOK AT THEM SMASHING THAT LASER PRINTER AAAHAHAHAHA

Summary: Dilbert TV show could learn a thing or two from this one
Plot? Originality? Who cares, I was too busy laughing. If you've seen cubicle life from the inside, you *know* these characters, and you will dream of finding that therapist. If you haven't, it's pretty funny anyway (based on the reaction of my SO, anyway) -- stupidity in business exists outside of the cubicle farms too.

Summary: S'ok, some very funny scenes
OK, the movie was alright. Owes a lot to Dilbert as others mentioned. Could have been more tight The thing I don't get is why people with tech skills stay at places like that. Totally not possible. Xibo can tell you. Best use of Gangster Rap in a movie.

Summary: ten times funnier than dilbert
Some really funny shit in here. I laughed my ass off. The Indian worker pretending he's from the hood is funny as hell.
