Office Space (A Movie Review)

Office Space


Starring Ron Livingston, Jennifer Aniston, Ajay Naidu, David Herman, Gary Cole, Stephen Root, Richard Riehle, Alexandra Wentworth, Joe Bays, John C. McGinley, Paul Willson, Greg Pitts, Mike Judge and Diedrich Bader.

Screenplay by Mike Judge.

Directed by Mike Judge.

Distributed by Twentieth Century Fox. 90 minutes. Rated R.

The first live action film by Mike Judge (Beavis & Butthead, King of The Hill) starts out as a blistering satire on the soullessness of the corporate world. A surreal nightmare of memos and requisitions and hectoring bosses, Office Space is enough to give any cubicle dweller the night sweats.

Add to that the fact that most of the stars are good but anonymous just adds to the sense of corporate blandness.

Too bad the last half hour gets bogged down in a pretty typical caper plot. It makes what had been a terrific film sort of limp into the finish line. (2/99)
