Goofs

Michael clearly indicates that he wrote a virus that will "rip off the company big time," but could not install it because, "I don't know that credit union software well enough." Yet, when Peter installs the virus, all he is doing is downloading the virus file from the floppy to the credit union computer at work, and certainly Michael could have handled that. Even Michael himself says, "All we have to do is load it into the credit union mainframe, and the computer will do the rest." See more »

And, and I told Don too, because they've moved my desk four times already this year, and I used to be over by the window, and I could see the squirrels, and they were merry, but then, they switched from the Swingline to the Boston stapler, but I kept my Swingline stapler because it didn't bind up as much, ...

Best Movie I've Ever Seen
11 July 2004 | by jtenosSee all my reviews

Incredibly true-to-life story about life at work. Anyone who's ever worked in a large office will find at least one thing, probably more, that they can relate to.

Look at the characters: From the receptionist with the annoying high-pitched voice, to the clueless management, to the soft-spoken guy with no backbone (or so you think), this looks more like a documentary than fiction.

The daily situations of the office environment, including paper jams in the printer, static electricity, and slow computers, are hilarious for some reason when they happen to the people in the movie.

Throw in some great acting, a good story, and the humor of Mike Judge, and you'll find one of the best movies ever made, hilarious from start to finish.
