    Have you worked in an office setting like that portrayed in the movie? I think you really have to have been subjected to some of the things that corporations pull to fully appreciate all the humor in that movie.

    Yea, you've obviously never worked an office job... It's 100% satire at its finest. Have you ever read Dilbert? The basic punchlines are ok, but the thing is,,, Dilbert = My Job!
    It hits the nail on the head perfectly... It's so dead on accurate, its scary!

    I never thought it was that funny either. Maybe it is something you have to experience to appreciate.

    It's a very quotable movie, and it's also the type of movie that it's really hard to enjoy if you are just watching it on your own. I rarely laugh when I watch it on my own, but when watching with a group of 4-6 people, it's hilarious.
  8. i have worked in rediculous office jobs.... for YEARS as a matter of fact. but that doesn't make a bad movie watchable.

    You probably hate Spinal Tap, too.

    I still watch Office Space about twice a month or so.

    Johnny Dangerously is like that. It's not terribly funny by itself, but quoting it is a riot.

    "Did you know your last name is an adverb?"

    "It shoots through schools."

    And the grapevine bit (I can't remember the phrasing, just the punchline) "He didn't say that!" "No, but I know this grapevine."

    /shrug. My current work situation is EXACTLY like initech, cube layout and everything. I find a lot of the jokes painfully truthful and funny.

    So what ???

    I hate almost all of Led Zep's work, I wish the Grateful Dead never existed, and I don't like Jaco's recordings either.

    It's a wide world and what a dull world it would be if we all agreed to appreciate the same things.

    I love the movie, but then, I was in a corporate environment where I experienced the same situations as that movie. Maybe you haven't and I understand that.

    If it feels good, do it.

    I realize I'm probably in a minority because I think Adam Sandler is as funny as an infant's funeral.

    I don't think we can be friends anymore, Phil.

    I too hate Adam Sandler, and I thought Cable Guy was hilarious.

    How can you hate Adam Sandler? He's only been in 2 movies, Punch Drunk Love, and that other one.
