One of the highest points of Mike Judge's career besides BEAVIS AND BUTTHEAD and KING OF THE HILL is OFFICE SPACE. This comedy classic is a well known comedic satire that is considered to have high esteem among various critics. The film tells a funny story about a man who has zero tolerance for his job and from the minute, he walks in the door, all he can think about is the minute he gets to leave. Many people will relate to the experience of hating their job and for these people, I'm sure they will find this movie a hoot. I am sorry to say that this film was not a high point for me, so where do I start. For starters, I really can't relate to the satirical humour and for this reason, I did not find the humour funny. I found with this movie that with the exception of a few brief scenes that for the most part the feature was rather flat and unappealing for me.
I feel sorry for the talented actors for giving good performances in this film who I feel could have been cast in better roles. Gary Cole is the standout performer because of his self-centred character.
I presume that OFFICE SPACE was overrated and was given more credit than deserved. If you agree with my opinion in this review, than I think it would be safe to say that this movie is not for you.
