My Favorite Movies - "O" is for Office Space
"PC load letter? What the fuck does that mean?"
We're back in 1999 again today for Office Space, one of my all-time favorite movies. This movie has it all: romance, theft, crazy-psycho employees, good friends, dorky bosses and cubicles. Oh, and quotes to use...lots and lots of quotes.
The cast of this movie is fabulous with Jennifer Aniston as Joanna and Ron Livingston as Peter. David Herman, Deidrich Bader, Stephen Root, Gary Cole and John C. McGinley round out a well-known cast. Gary Cole as Peter's boss is hysterical: "Hello Peter, what's happening? Ummm, I'm gonna need you to go ahead and come in tomorrow. So if you could be here around 9, that would be great. Mmmm K." Imagine a slow, condescending tone and you have him pegged.
Peter and his friends, Samir and Michael Bolten - are also quite funny. Between the printer constantly getting paper jammed or running out of paper to the "penny-pinching" theft idea - they will keep you laughing throughout the entire movie.
You can't help but feel slightlly bad for Milton, the slightly psycho, slightly odd co-worker of Peter's. He and his red stapler will keep you on your toes.
Would anyone like a slice of birthday cake?
