Office Space

  • He offers the mildest demurral, and his bosses say, "Sounds like you've got a case of the Mondays." So ordinary worker ant Peter (Ron Livingston, with a suburban charm and anxiety that verge on the Hanksian) wonders how to end the day. Quit? Suicide? Or a little corporate revenge? He picks (c), which is where Office Space goes off the rails. For the first half of the film, though, Judge (King of the Hill) runs some interesting twists on workaday boredom. At its shambling best, Office Space is like a bracing break at the coffee machine. Some horrible Monday, why not cut work to see it?
