Office Space is an American film about three office workers who get fed up with their jobs, and decide to rebel against their boss by creating an intricate money laundering plan to steal from their company.

I must say that I had never heard of this film before I saw it, but it was hilarious! It was the perfect combination of stupidity and a ridiculous storyline, which made it even funnier to watch.

The characters were also all fantastic, with the emotionless and fake friendly boss, as well as Milton, the naïve person, who ends up being the smartest of all, once he loses it, after they “took his stapler”;  he was definitely one of the funniest movie characters I have ever seen, up there with Ron Burgundy and others.

Surprisingly, the plot was not a total cliché, which made the viewing much more entertaining for me, and the apathy of all of the characters was so convincing, it was brilliant, so that’s why I’ll give it 8.6.
