This year marks the 20th anniversary of the cult favorite comedy Office Space. The movie bombed spectacularly at the box office with just under $11 million made in its entire domestic run. That was barely enough to cover the film’s budget. But against all odds, the movie found a big audience on home video and cable and has since become one of the most quoted and beloved comedies of the ’90s.
Since this year is a milestone anniversary for Office Space, writer/director Mike Judge, cast members Ron Livingston, David Herman, Ajay Naidu, Jennifer Aniston, Gary Cole and some key crew members sat down for an oral history of the film to discuss how it came together, who nearly starred in the movie, why Madonna finds Michael Bolton sexy and much more. Find out everything we learned from the Office Space oral history below. Read More »
If you celebrate the entire Mike Judge catalog like we do, you’re going to want to watch this latest video from the Funny or Die team. They got Michael Bolton – the real Michael Bolton – to reenact scenes from Judge’s comedy Office Space. Of course, in that movie, actor David Herman played a character named “Michael Bolton,” which set the stage for numerous jokes about his name. Many of those you can see here, with the real Bolton awkwardly digitally inserted into the film.
It’s a short, super funny video, mostly because the Office Space scenes are still so great. Check out the Michael Bolton Office Space video below. Read More »
Short of putting a Blu-ray on your shelf or a poster on your wall, quoting a movie in conversation is one of the best ways to pay tribute to movies you love. We’ve all dropped a quote from a movie into casual conversation and then gotten a nod of recognition from someone who is in on the joke. What’s cool about these posters by designer Jerod Gibson is that it takes those quotes and puts them on a pedestal, making the words the stars of iconic films like the original Star Wars Trilogy, Pee Wee’s Big Adventure and Ghostbusters. After the jump, check out a huge gallery of images and more. Read More »

The set includes: Office Space, Back to the Future, Beetle Juice, and… Ghost. Yes, the 1990 Patrick Swayze/Demi Moore film — we didn’t understand how it fit into this grouping either… B the other three coasters are really cool and the set comes packaged with a little wooden coaster holder.

Once you think about it, the idea of Mike Judge’s comedy Office Space reimagined as a musical really isn’t that off base. The film is filled with awesome musical interludes that could easily transformed into big production numbers. There’s Michael Bolton rapping in his car, the “Damn, It Feels Good To Be a Gangster” montage, the celebratory dance party back at Peter’s and of course “Take This Job and Shove It.” Then there a slew of characters whose delivery or catch phrases are begging, and probably have been, remixed all to hell. Lumburgh’s “Yeaaah,” Drew’s “Oh Face,” or the “Just a moment” receptionist all come to mind. But then there’s Milton. Sweet, lovable, oh so violent Milton. How would he fit into an Office Space Musical? Well, throw on some flair and don’t get a case of the Monday’s because we’re gonna have to ask you to find out after the break. Read More »
