Trivia

The infamous "PC Load Letter" error that confounded Michael Bolton is a message that the printer was out of, or not recognizing the refill of Letter-sized (8.5x11 inches) paper. "PC" stands for "Paper Cartridge". Older model HP Laserjet printers commonly display this error. This error also occurs when attempting to print a non-letter-sized project onto letter-sized paper.

Um yeah, I'm going to have to go ahead and sort of rate this one a 9
9 February 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you work in a cube, and love satire, this is your movie! Those who would slam it probably do not get it and that's fine but those of us who do will see it multiple times. This movie does for office workers what "This Is Spinal Tap" did for musicians. That means it may not be a movie for everyone but for those chosen ones, it means getting together with friends a couple of times a year to enjoy a classic and quote it constantly on those other 363 days when they're not watching it! If you are a cube dweller, then I need you to go ahead and check out this movie, uh that would be great. I too rated it a 9 because of the gangster-rap soundtrack. Save for that, I would've gone ahead and rated it a 10.
