Peter Gibbons, disillusioned software analyst at Initech who does very little actual work, interacts with his coworkers in their dysfunctional workplace set in cubicle land. A pair of efficiency experts are brought in to help downsize the company; when it becomes apparent that some will lose their jobs, Peter and his friends hatch a get-rich-quick scheme. What could go wrong? From the creator of Beavis and Butthead, and based on his series of animated Milton shorts pieces from 1991, which saw play on Saturday Night Live.

REVIEWS

Review by Gantgirl (posted on 21-Jul-2007)

This movie proves it's possible to be hilarious and witty without being gross or profane. It's unforgettable in so many ways - who can forget the neurotic man with the red stapler, or Orlando Jones as a spaced-out magazine salesman, or the guy swearing at the printer which is giving a stupid error code which we're all seen but never understood? And what about the idiot bosses that most people have had at one time - Lumberg, who walks around with coffee and never actually produces work, or Jennifer Aniston's boss at the resturant ranting at her for not having enough stupid buttons (fringe) on her uniform? Ron Livingston was perfect as the burned-out computer guy who rebels. I read somewhere that when the movie came out, many people were going to Office Max to buy a red stapler! The humor is subtle, the script is brilliant, and everyone will recognize the characters as people they've known and worked with! This movie is a must see.
