Movie Rec - Office Space

Yeah, Office Space is ten years old, but I did just get around to seeing it.

You see, I just don't watch *comedies*. In fact, right now as I'm trying to think of my favorite comedic film I'm coming up blank. There are simply no candidates. Remember There's Something About Mary? Everyone implored me to see it, saying it was the funniest thing ever. I was completely unmoved.

The same went for Old School. That was one of the stupidest, most over-rated films of all-time.

I don't know what it is. Perhaps I just don't have any sense of humor whatsoever?

So anyways....Office Space started out great. I was laughing not 41 seconds into the opening scene where that Charlie Sheen look-alike was trying to change into the faster moving lane. I absolutely loved the first part of this movie before the *change*. Then it sucked royally.

I doubt a movie hasn't going *limp* this fast, this badly since The Crying Game. Would you believe I saw that one during Spring Break? We walked out of the theater!

I reluctantly give Office Space 3.5 stars out of 5 - if only because the beginning was so well done.

Go see Snatch.

Snatch was great, the fuuniest I've seen Brad Pitt.

Lock, Stock and two Smoking Barrels is just as funny.

In that same Brit mob genre, Layer Cake is also great.

Alright, I'll have to go rent Snatch.

If it stinks, I will never take Anonymous advice as long as I breathe.

FCB....I stopped listening to him a while back!

"FCB....I stopped listening to him a while back!"...hence your FAZ administered anal pounding!

I have liked Office Space quite a bit. Really lends itself to stupid drunken quoting. I am guessing you have a highly underdeveloped sense of humor. Don't forget about that in home schooling. Life without humor just isn't worth a whole lot.

Agree with you on Old School. Will Ferrell is funny in other movies-Anchorman E.G.

Those Brit comedy crime movies are all excellent too.

Slow out.

Snatch was my Rec. Just remember the hill billy NH boy suggested it. Lock stock is great but I know how C-nut needs established hollywood stars in his movies before he likes them hence his 3.5 stars for blood diamond...What about a classic like Caddy Shack? "The world needs ditch diggers too!"

Y'all see what Kfell does?

He *workshops* comments via anonymity....

Then, when they fly, he puts his hand up to take credit!

I'll bet it's him here as well, ANONYMOUSLY taking offense to me driving an SUV.

I tried to watch Borat....but couldn't make it through the film.

I rank it up there with the rest of the over-hyped, unfunny comedies.

Though, indeed the trailer for Bruno does look promising.
