Movie Info

Corporate drone Peter Gibbons (Ron Livingston) hates his soul-killing job at software company Initech. While undergoing hypnotherapy, Peter is left in a blissful state when his therapist dies in the middle of their session. He refuses to work overtime, plays games at his desk and unintentionally charms two consultants into putting him on the management fast-track. When Peter's friends learn they're about to be downsized, they hatch a revenge plot against the company inspired by "Superman III."

Critic Reviews for Office Space

All Critics (101) | Top Critics (27) | Fresh (81) | Rotten (20)

  • Given the terrific setup, the rather lackadaisical ending is flat. Still, the performers have a lot of fun getting there.

    February 20, 2018 | Full Review…
  • With a judiciously executed hip-hop soundtrack and the same anti-conformist spirit that informs Judge's TV cartoons, "Office Space" can expect to attract people who aren't even old enough to be stuck in dead-end jobs.

    February 19, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Office Space, a knowing, somewhat slight, often hilarious sendup of cubicle culture, exploits the yuks in the chronic misery of those routinely exposed to the monotonous gray of corporate minds and company decor.

    November 2, 2013 | Full Review…
  • The more you peer beneath the surface humor of Office Space the scarier and more serious its vision of contemporary existence becomes.

    November 2, 2013 | Full Review…
  • A hilarious knockdown of corporate culture.

    November 2, 2013
  • Office Space feels cramped and underimagined. I think Judge is capable of making an inspired live-action comedy, but next time he'll have to remember to do what he does in his animated ones -- keep the madness popping.

Audience Reviews for Office Space

    I am not sure why I never saw this until now. It has elements that any office worker can easily identify with. A great cast with believable characters kind of makes this the Ferris Bueller of office movies.

    Umm...yeah. Office Space is an outstanding workplace comedy that brilliantly satirizes office life. After going to hypnotherapy, software engineer Peter Gibbons has a change in attitude and begins to rebel against the cubicle life that he feels trapped by. Ron Livingston, Jennifer Aniston, Stephen Root, and Gary Cole lead the cast and give strong performances. The writing is also especially good, particularly the dialog; which is quite clever and witty. Overall the film does a great job at satirizing Corporate America, and at finding humor in the mundane. A poignant and timely comedy, Office Space is incredibly smart and funny. "PC load letter! What the f*** does that mean?"

    For a comedy in the realms of the start of the new millennium, Mike Judge does well in maintaining the satirical nonsense and laughter within the realms of the corporate-cubicle genre. Office Space is sly and humorous. 4/5

    Like Judge's Extract, Office Space may not be laugh-out-loud funny, but it definitely puts a smile on your face and entertains you throughout. I really loved the way the film presents an office: as something that can really waste your time when you could be making money in better ways. It shows that not everyone is meant to be cooped up in an office for the rest of their lives, which is important to consider when making career choices, therefore making the film itself important.
