Any one who works in bureaucracy will enjoy ... light, fun. Also a reminder of how quickly technology has changed in the last decade. Downside: unfortunate anti-gay, homophobic comments.

Extremely flimsy premise used to get things going (visit to hypnotherapist by man who suspects girlfriend is cheating on him - why would either of them go, given that turns out to be the case?)....but much fun ensues. Gotta love Milton. Definitely a light fun watch.

Has its funny moments, because so like so many offices -- e.g. 1:
dunces or affable, haven't-got-a-clue folk running the site.
e.g. 2: management not treating people with respect because they don't want to deal with confrontation.

Very good, very underrated comedy. I would recommend this to anyone as I believe everyone can relate to this film.

Not as good as I remember but still worth watching.

Funnier, I suppose, if you work in an office-like environment, you'll recognize the archetypes for various employees

"You're taking money, right?"
"Right."
"Money that's not yours?"
"Right."
"How is that not stealing?"

Drew: I'm thinking I might take that new chick from Logistics. If things go well I might be showing her my O-face. "Oh... Oh... Oh!" You know what I'm talkin' about. "Oh!"

Samir: No one in this country can ever pronounce my name right. It's not that hard: Na-ghee-na-na-jar. Nagheenanajar.
Michael Bolton: Yeah, well, at least your name isn't Michael Bolton.
Samir: You know, there's nothing wrong with that name.
Michael Bolton: There *was* nothing wrong with it... until I was about twelve years old and that no-talent ass clown became famous and started winning Grammys.
Samir: Hmm... well, why don't you just go by Mike instead of Michael?
Michael Bolton: No way! Why should I change? He's the one who sucks.

Dom Portwood: Hi, Peter. What's happening? We need to talk about your TPS reports.
Peter Gibbons: Yeah. The coversheet. I know, I know. Uh, Bill talked to me about it.
Dom Portwood: Yeah. Did you get that memo?
Peter Gibbons: Yeah. I got the memo. And I understand the policy. And the problem is just that I forgot the one time. And I've already taken care of it so it's not even really a problem anymore.
Dom Portwood: Ah! Yeah. It's just we're putting new coversheets on all the TPS reports before they go out now. So if you could go ahead and try to remember to do that from now on, that'd be great. All right!
