3/4 79% Office Space (1999) "Even if it doesn't up live to its inspired beginning, Mike Judge scores something with all the marks of a workplace cult classic with his first big-screen, live-action outing. " ‐ TV Guide's Movie Guide

2/4 59% The Rugrats Movie (1998) "Intermittently snappy and featuring slicker animation than its TV incarnation, this popular children's cartoon may satisfy its youngest fans, but it'll be a big snoozefest for the rest of the family. " ‐ TV Guide's Movie Guide
