Three disgruntled employees including white collar worker Peter Gibbons (Ron Livingston) plot to make it big by siphoning money from their company's funds. They will do this with a computer program that steals only fractions of cents at a time. For this reason, no one should notice any missing money, but within a few years it will accumulate into a hundred thousand dollars or so. Simple plan, right? They all think so until it backfires - big time.
Meanwhile, laughable scene follows laughable scene as we watch the characters' miserable lives unfold. Condescending bosses, annoying coworkers, and new consultants are only a few of the problems these poor guys encounter. Also, there is a subplot about Peter's girlfriend, Joanna (Jennifer Aniston) and her miserable job as a waitress.
I thoroughly enjoyed Office Space. The black humor and quick, continuously funny plot makes Office Space a don't-miss comedy. It's an especially terrific movie for disgruntled employees (and who hasn't felt disgruntled at one time or another?) I don't think I found anything to dislike about this movie, and naturally I'm very, well, critical.
