What can be said? This movie is a classic, comedy gold all the way through.

Peter represents anyone who's ever had to work a shitty job, with shitty bosses, doing shitty work. Almost everyone can relate with the things that are going on here, be it the droning boss, or the company equipment that won't work as planned, or the big bosses who have no idea about what actually goes on at the job. Good ol' Mike hit the nail on the head with his representations of the modern workplace. The restaraunt business is briefly touched upon, with the waitress who has to wear 'flair' for her job; flair being pins and buttons. The boss expects more and more from her, always pointing to the do-gooding waiter who kisses everyones ass. Now tell me, any of you working stiffs out there had such happen?

There's loads of classic scenes and lines to be found in this movie, which would take forever to list off. One in particular, however, just rules the rest. One of the machines in the office is a piece of shit, it never works right; always eating paper, always giving out cryptic error messages. When the boys are fired, they take said machine out to a field and give it quite the gangsta beatdown. That scene is one of the single funniest moments in cinematic history, in my opinion.

The acting by everyone is done top notch. When you can watch a movie and identify with almost everyone portrayed ("I know a guy just like that"), you know they did something right. The storyline flows pretty realistically, but stays interesting throughout.

10/10

Fucking hilarious movie. Best part is Peter's dream in which Lumberg is bangin' Jennifer Aniston's character.

As someone who's worked in construction before, I can safely say that working an office job would be much better. Other than that, it's okay.

"if you're having a bad day, does anyone ever say looks like somebody has a case of the mondays""No, no. In fact, I think you'd get your ass kicked for saying something like that."

Probably the funniest movie I've ever seen, or close to it. Ties up there with Death To Smoochy anyway.

Milton Waddams (Steven Root) made me laugh so hard with his mumbled threats and complaints.

"And I said, I don't care if they lay me off either, because I told, I told Bill that if they move my desk one more time, then, then I'm, I'm quitting, I'm going to quit. And, and I told Don too, because they've moved my desk four times already this year, and I used to be over by the window, and I could see the squirrels, and they were married, but then, they switched from the Swingline to the Boston stapler, but I kept my Swingline stapler because it didn't bind up as much, and I kept the staples for the Swingline stapler and it's not okay because if they take my stapler then I'll set the building on fire... "

Definatly not the funniest movie I've ever seen, but it kept me laughing. 8/10
