"It's not that I'm lazy, it's that I just don't care."

So goes one of my favorite lines from one of my favorite movies, Office Space. Gina took me to a screening of the film at USC last night. The film was introduced by Diedrich Bader who played mullet-haired neighbor, Lawrence, in the film and who is also known for his roles on the Drew Carey Show and as the crazy karate master in Napoleon Dynamite. I got to meet him and he is a really nice -- and funny -- guy.

For a film that is now nearly a decade old, Office Space holds up very well. For anyone that has spent time in a cubicle or an office environment, you may recognize Lumbergh, and Milton and the Bobs from your own life. The script is really clever and the ensemble of actors does a wonderful job of capturing the ethos of living a life that is not the most fulfilling. It had been a while since I had seen the whole movie and it was a lot of fun to see with an audience. If you haven't watched it for awhile, I recommend revisiting it. And if you've never seen it, you're likely too busy filling out your TPS reports...


  1. Damn, it feels good to be a gangsta!

  2. "And yes, I won't be leaving a tip, 'cause I could... I could shut this whole resort down. Sir? I'll take my traveler's checks to a competing resort. I could write a letter to your board of tourism and I could have this place condemned. I could put... I could put... strychnine in the guacamole. There was salt on the glass, BIG grains of salt."
