The review of this Movie prepared by Ken Guzman

This Office allegory done by Mike Judge (crerator of Beavis and Butthead, and King of the Hill) is a clever, hilariously funny portrayal of Modern Day office life. Peter Gibbons (Ron Livingston), who has become bored and depressed with his job and cannot bear to take another day of it. Then, after a strange hypnotic experience, he adopts a strange new attitude, where he no longer cares about work, AT ALL. Jennifer Aniston plays his girlfriend (who is also frustrated with her job). Eventually, Peter attempts a computer scheme to rip his company off from a large sum of money. Office Space is a truly excellent film, with many of the office humor closer to life than many of us would like to admit. Look for Mike Judge as the manager of Chotchkie's restaurant.
