"Milt, we're gonna need to go ahead and move you downstairs into storage B. We have some new people coming in, and we need all the space we can get. So if you could just go ahead and pack up your stuff and move it down there, that would be terrific, OK?" - Bill Lumbergh, Office Space (1999)

Twentieth Century Fox, Rated R, 89 minutes.

Directed By: Mike Judge

Cast:

Ron Livingston - Peter Gibbons

Jennifer Aniston - Joanna

David Herman - Michael Bolton

Ajay Naidu - Samir Nagheenanajar

Diedrich Bader - Lawrence

Stephen Root - Milton Waddams

Gary Cole - Bill Lumbergh

Domestic Box Office Gross: $10,827,813

Synopsis: Through hypnotic suggestion, Peter Gibbons has decided to make some changes in his unfulfilled life that include embezzlement and a waitress with not nearly enough flair.

Fact: The ring Gary Cole wears is the Earthforce Military Academy, used in a short-lived science fiction show called "Crusades". Cole wore the ring in every episode and thought it would be funny to use it in the film.

Trivia: Swingline discontinued making red staplers until Office Space reached cult status. After being inundated with requests for them, they brought them back.

Movie Mistake: The poster behind Peter movies between shot's when Peter asks Lawrence "What you would do with a million dollars?"

My Take: Office Space is a great cult classic film and is funny as hell.  The film has a great wink and a nod moment between previous viewers every time you ask if 'you've seen my stapler' or threaten to 'burn' your place of employment down.
