Damn It Feels Good To Be a Gangsta...

Last night, for the second time in as many weeks, A&E had late night showings of "Office Space." This movie has officially moved into my, "will watch this movie whenever it's on" category. I know others on the forum love it as well, so lets hear some of your favorite lines and all that crap.

I didn't fully appreciate this movie until after I took a summer job as a telemarketer in a crappy office my freshman year of college.

I love the random hints. Like Peter mentioning to several guys that his girlfriend might be cheating and they all agree. Just the way they say it though... makes it sound like they're all sleeping with her.


#3

One of the best films ever. I work for a software company so it rings true.


#4

Large part of the reason I changed from a double major in Computer Science & Physics.

When my girl calls my cell, my ringtone is Drew saying"If things go well, maybe later I'll be showin her my 'o' face O,O,O YOU KNOW WHAT i'M TALKIN ABOUT, O."


#6

It's hilarious when he is picturing his boss sleeping with his girlfriend, cup of coffee and all.


#7

What is scary is that I knew what the thread was about before I clicked. We own it on DVD, and watch Office Space all the time.

One of the funniest movies ever made. I put it in the top three all time, tied with Super Troopers and Napoleon Dynamite.

My principal ordered us all red swingline staplers last year. If he hadn't I was going to have him killed, because he once brought me a margarita with salt and I ordered it with no salt. NO SALT.

Ooops - forgot to add my favorite line(s)

"Hell, Lumberg fucked her"

"Corporate accounts payable, Nina speaking. Just a moment."

"PC load letter? What the fuck is PC load letter?"

This is what I don't get.I love Office Space, I love Super Troopers, but I just did not get Napoleon Dynamite. All I could think of while watching that movie was "Why weren't these people drowned at birth?". I think it was the most unfunny movie I've ever seen.

"Why does it say paperjam, when there IS no paperjam... I swear to god one day I just kick this piece of shit out the window!"

"Hey Lance, you wanna come over and drink a few beers." -No thanks man, I don't want you fuckin up my life too-

"Well what about today Peter, is today the worst day of your life?" -Yeah- "Wow that's fucked up"


#12

I love that movie too....

My favorite scene is when they have that song "see subject line" playing....

and when he meets with the two "bobs" and tells them he is not motivated.

"I celebrate the guy's entire catalogue."

"No man, hell no, I do believe you'd get your ass kicked for saying something like that."

I like how they used the Ghetto Boys music in the movie. It's tough music but they use it so it works with the comedy. I really like how Michael Bolton is rapping along with the music but turns it down and locks the door when a black guy walks by his car.


#14

I agree. Napoleon Dynamite was one of the worst movies I've ever seen. Just not funny at all. I've had people try to explain to me why it is funny but I don't get it.


#15

I'm thinking I might take that new chick from logistics. Things go well, I might be showin' her my O-face. Oh! Oh! Oh! You know what I'm talkin' about ... Oh!


#16

Watch yer cornhole.

"you know the nazi's had pieces of flare they made the jews wear."

Kick ass movie, one of my favorite comedies along with The Adventures of Ford Fairlane and Napolean Dynamite

Bob Porter: Looks like you've been missing a lot of work lately.

Peter: I wouldn't say I've been 'missing' it Bob.

Officespace kicks so much ass.

"Conjugal visits? I don't know... The only way you survive in prison is to either kick somebody's ass on the first day, or be somebody's bitch."

"So Mr. Lumberg, how much time do you spend a day on TPS reports?

Uh... yeah..."

Good movie, good message. I have this kind of system at work here in the hospital that I follow that I call "you can't make me care". Basically, I get to pick what I care about. No one can say, "hey this is really important because I said so" and make me actually think that way. I get to decide if it's important or not to me. A couple of others around here have picked up on my "attitude adjustment" and now actually enjoy a work environment that is much more stress-free than they ever had before. I think it's because so many people actually create their own stress on themselves.

That's my theory, anyway. It works.

Maybe my semi-rant was a thread hijack? Oh well. I'm not sorry.

I almost die laughing at the printer murder scene, seriously, I couldn't breathe.

I love that movie :slight_smile:
