Overview

Mike Judge's underrated workplace comedy Office Space comes to DVD with a standard full-frame transfer that fails to preserve the original theatrical aspect ratio. Closed-captioned English soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Surround, while a Spanish soundtrack has been recorded in Dolby Digital Surround as well. Subtitles are accessible in both of those languages as well. Supplemental materials include the original theatrical trailer. This is a fine disc for what it is, but the film is available with a widescreen transfer. That version is superior to this one.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Skyler Miller
Mike Judge's first live-action feature, inspired by his animated short of the same name, manages to work some hilariously pointed jabs at corporate culture into its good-natured, meandering plot. Dissatisfied with his job at a lifeless technology company, the laid-back Peter Gibbons (Ron Livingston) undergoes a mishap during hypnosis therapy and begins to live out his work-related fantasies -- talking back to his boss, destroying office equipment, and playing Tetris on the clock. He also gains the courage to ask out Joanna (Jennifer Aniston), a beautiful waitress he's long had his eye on. Although the subplots involving an embezzling scheme and the requisite romantic misunderstandings between Peter and Joanna are dispensable, Office Space contains many genuinely inspired and memorable scenes, such as the severe beating of an office printer, a party celebrating a co-worker's insurance settlement, and a discussion of how many "pieces of flair" Joanna should wear on her uniform. All of these scenes have something to say about the maddening absurdity of corporate culture, and they're delivered with a gentle yet committed brand of comedy. Jokes are pushed far enough to be funny, but not so far as to become tedious. This mild sense of humor, along with Judge's keen awareness of how the daily grind of office work can drive people a little crazy, makes Office Space an accessible, entertaining satire.
