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.
