Office Space is one of those movies you wished you hadn’t missed in the theaters, or wished it had done better, so everybody had a chance to see how great this film actually is.

I’m not going to go into great detail about this movie, because I don’t want to spoil the greatness of this film. Basically in a nutshell, Office Space tells the story of a cubicle slave Peter Gibbons(Ron Livingston) who can’t take another day at work. He takes it upon himself to do whatever it takes to get fired, even if it means not showing up. He soon realizes that his negligence lands him a promotion.

For the entire hour and a half of the movie you are propelled with genuine comedy. While some people might not understand the ‘cubicle humor’ it still is considered ‘comedy gold.’ The rest of the cast gives a stellar comedy performance. It is truly sad this was missed by a lot of people at the theater, but now is getting a whole new following on video/DVD. There is a huge fan base for this movie and has already been given cult status.

I urge everyone who has not seen this gem of a movie to either rent it, catch it on cable or in the best solution buy it! You won’t be sorry.

NOTE: while this is available on DVD as a bare-bones edition, this is already being considered as a BIG SPECIAL EDITION(with lots of extras). There already is a petition being sent to 20th Century Fox with well over 300 people already wanting this as a special edition(courtesy of Home Theater Forum!!!)

AGAIN! Do not pass up this movie it is one great movie and you will be wanting to watch it over and over!
