If you think your job sucks, just watch Office Space. Depicting a truly nightmarish 9-to-5, Beavis and Butthead creator Mike Judge turned many a youngster off to corporate desk jobs with this acutely written cult favorite. There's the droll boss from hell (Gary Cole), the fat and irritating receptionist who repeats the same telephone greeting ad nauseam, and those damn TPS reports. Add those together and you'll understand why we pursued the casually dressed world of journalism.
Ron Livingston is cool as the disenchanted lead, but the film's supporting cast-especially MADtv alum David Herman as the unfortunately named closet Geto Boys fan Michael Bolton-are Office Space's strongest assets. Ranking as one of the most quotable flicks on this list, Office Space never gets old. Now excuse us while we try to show some lucky gal our O-face.
