Office Space

I had forgotten how much I loved this movie, until I noticed it had a cartoon counterpart. Unable to tolerate another monotonous day at Initech Corporation, cubicle slave Peter Gibbons (Ron Livingston) suddenly experiences an air of ease and change of attitude, and decides to get fired. Armed with a leisurely new attitude and a new girlfriend (Jennifer Aniston), he soon masters the art of neglecting his work, which quickly propels him into the ranks of upper management. Now the stage is set for Peter to carry out a high-tech embezzling scheme that's sure to mean the end of his job and a one-way ticket to easy street. Can he pull it off before all corporate hell breaks loose? Perhaps the best office based movie to have been released, Office Space is sharply satirical and supremely funny. For those who have not seen the movie, I'll suggest a visit to Blockbuster. For those who have seen the movie, you'll be pleased to learn the film has been given the bunny treatment by the folks over at Angry Alien. With a raised eyebrow, slender semblances of humour, the bunnies have gained mainstream attention, featuring on CNN, BBC online, the Sci-Fi Channel, and variety magazine.
