Office Space

Office Space ★★½ 1998 (R)

Cartoon bigwig Mike Judge tries his hand at live action in this satire of white collar corporate drudgery. Peter (Livingston) is a drone for a software company well on his way to a nervous breakdown when a hypnosis mishap opens his eyes. He becomes so apathetic toward his job that he can't even muster up the energy to quit. His new no-work ethic is mistaken by a pair of corporate headhunters as “middle-management potential,” and he is promoted as his pals Michael (Herman) and Samir (Naidu) are laid off. Frustrated in his attempts to be down-sized, Peter hatches a plot to embezzle the company. Stephen Root, as disgruntled nerd Milton, steals scenes like they were office supplies in an unlocked cabinet. Adapted from animated shorts made by Judge before the Beavis and Butthead gravy train rolled into the station. 89m/C VHS, DVD, UMD . Mike Judge, John C.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
