The lives of cubicle drones are satirized in Office Space, a film by Mike Judge who also created Beavis and Butthead and King of the Hill. The comedy is available on Blu-ray disc. This cult comedy classic stars Ron Livingston as an engineer who is supremely unsatisfied with his job and frustrated with office culture and politics, but a series of hilarious events give him a chance to take revenge with the help of his two friends and co-workers, played by David Herman and Ajay Naidu. Comedy fans can enjoy watching the plot unfold, while simultaneously appreciating the scathing social commentary and memorable lines. Office Space also features Stephen Root, Gary Cole and Jennifer Aniston in supporting roles. The Blu-ray disc version of Office Space comes with the widescreen version of the movie and Spanish subtitles. Office Space is based on Mike Judge's cartoon series known as Milton. The character of Milton is played by Stephen Root in one of his most memorable roles and delivers some of the most oft-quoted lines in this cult comedy classic., This geeky 1999 office comedy starring Ron Livingston as a corporate Everyman instantly gained cult status for its unabashed caricatures of office personalities, and its theme of corporate sabotage. Peter Gibbons (Livingston) is a typical middle manager living a mundane life amid a gray maze of cubicles. Everything in his life reeks of mediocrity, from the mid-size car he drives to the chain restaurant, Chotchky's (read: TGI Friday's), where he eats lunch every day. Even his apartment, a cookie-cutter duplex with walls so thin that he can chat with his next-door neighborhood through the plaster, is totally lacking in personality. The company where he works is peppered with ambitionless drones who blindly comply with the condescending requests made of them by their Porsche-driving CEO (Gary Cole). Then one day, Gibbons snaps. As a team of experts is brought in to enact large-scale layoffs, Gibbons simply stops trying and adopts an attitude of total disinterest. That is, he's only interested in dating the blond waitress (Jennifer Anniston) at the local restaurant, and putting in place a devilish scheme for some corporate payback.OFFICE SPACE's writer-director Mike Judge (BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD), scares up some A-list laughs with this film, while also making an excellent parody of corporate culture. Released just as the dot-com boom began to go bust, with massive trends in corporate downsizing on the horizon, it could not have been better timed. Thus, while viewers will delight in the absurdity of the ultimate office loser Milton (Stephen Root), they will also identify with some frighteningly realistic aspects of the film.
