You know what I can’t figure out? How is it that all these stupid neanderthal mafia guys can be so good at crime and smart guys like us can suck so badly at it?
Michael Bolton (David Herman) in the workforce satire Office Space (1999). Despite a low-key reception, the film has since garnered a cult following.
That was a good movie, the guy with the cup glued to his hand is epic xP!
So many great lines and scenes.
Great movie! 🙂
It was between that line and these two
Bob Porter: Looks like you’ve been missing a lot of work lately.
Peter Gibbons: I wouldn’t say I’ve been *missing* it, Bob.
Samir: No one in this country can ever pronounce my name right. It’s not that hard: Na-ghee-na-na-jar. Nagheenanajar.
Michael Bolton: Yeah, well, at least your name isn’t Michael Bolton.
Samir: You know, there’s nothing wrong with that name.
Michael Bolton: There *was* nothing wrong with it… until I was about twelve years old and that no-talent ass clown became famous and started winning Grammys.
Samir: Hmm… well, why don’t you just go by Mike instead of Michael?
Michael Bolton: No way! Why should I change? He’s the one who sucks.
Ha! Yep – they’re all good! I love when they smash the shit out of the office equipment. 🙂
We all did 🙂 “On February 8, 2009, a reunion of the cast (featuring many of the cast members) took place at the Paramount Theatre in Austin to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the film, which included the destruction of a printer on the sidewalk.”
Ha! That’s awesome. 🙂
Love this movie and very true on this quote!
I checked on the IMDB page and that quote wasn’t on it. It’s arguably the best line in the film.
Ahah that’s a hilarious quote! There are so many fun ones from this movie!
I know! No surprise the writer/director has such a strong background in comedy. I should do a quiz on films set in an office, thinking about it.
What a quotable movie. Great pick!
Thanks Wendell 🙂
I own the old school video tape of “Office Space,” Alex. That is how much we lile it! Love when the computer gets thrown:) We have to sit in the dining room to watch it on youngest daughter’s little college t.v. We also have a few silly Curious George and Muppet movies for grandies sitting and eating bowls of soup or cereal where they won’t spill all over Nana’a living room. 🙂 Paul Rudd and Lesley Mann are great modern comic actors with some serious side issues in “This is 40” but I liked it. Cameron Diaz and Ms. Mann are hilarious in scene with Mission Impossible music going on, in “The Other Woman.” Thanks, Alex. Hope you don’t ban me from replying!
Not at all! You’re always welcome. I get a lot of my office kicks from Dilbert. Was Kate Upton any good in The Other Woman or more eye and body candy?
And this line is just for you https://alexraphael.wordpress.com/2014/02/01/lines-of-the-day-suits/
You’ve convinced me! I will watch this as soon as I get the space in my schedule!
Can’t wait. It’s one of those films where I could easily have chosen five or six different ones.
