    Observations on the modern office space are dead-on, and I dare you not to laugh out loud at a few of the sophomoric jokes!

    Mike Judge’s live-action directorial debut not only whittles the high-strung festering soul of ‘90s Orthodox Corporationism down to the quick and quintessential but wraps its veins around his fingers and flosses our teeth.

    Its characters and its nowheresville setting are uncannily realized... It's not a cartoon in any sense, but an honest-to-God movie with some fine, understated acting and a human heart.

    A knowing, somewhat slight, often hilarious sendup of cubicle culture.

    It fails to sustain its comic momentum or high energy level. The first half is fresh and funny, but it doesn't last.

    There are plenty of good sight gags here, and anyone who can work the phrase "ass clown" into a script is all right with me.

    The collapse of Office Space's second half is so egregious that one can't help but suspect Judge's Achilles heel may be his writing. It's not that he can't write -- it's just that his ideas tend to shine better within a pool of fellow scribes, as proven in his television career.
