Office Space Review

Image for Office Space

A tale of company workers who hate their jobs and decide to rebel against their greedy boss.

★★★★★

Beavis And Butt-head alumnus Mike Judge transforms his animated satire Milton into movie reality to minimal effect.

The stultifying, dead zone of the modern office sits squarely in his cross-hairs as a trio of work-drones - lead by the bland Ron Livingston - finally rebel in their corporate cubicles. Irritatingly, as fertile a target as it is, Judge's film is shapeless, his characters wishy-washy and his jokes caught ineffectually skirting realism.

Jennifer Aniston crops up as an equally oppressed waitress at a theme restaurant, but it is only the corpulent Stephen Root, as the perpetually abused, mumbling obsessive-compulsive Milton, who catches the funny bone.

A shapeless comedy of little merit.
