Trivia

According to Richard Riehle, his first day on set as Tom Smykowski, was in the character's full body cast. Riehle said the production didn't have a Special Effects Coordinator on set, which meant an EMT had to help Riehle put on the full body cast. Riehle said it was a two hour process to put on and an hour to take off. See more »

Goofs

When Peter and Joanna are driving home from the barbecue, Joanna's hair changes from hanging over her ear to being neatly tucked behind - identical to the shots of them driving *to* the barbecue. See more »

Quotes

Peter Gibbons: What if we're still doing this when we're fifty?

Best Movie I've Ever Seen
11 July 2004 | by (Phoenix, AZ, USA) – See all my reviews

Incredibly true-to-life story about life at work. Anyone who's ever worked in a large office will find at least one thing, probably more, that they can relate to.

Look at the characters: From the receptionist with the annoying high-pitched voice, to the clueless management, to the soft-spoken guy with no backbone (or so you think), this looks more like a documentary than fiction.

The daily situations of the office environment, including paper jams in the printer, static electricity, and slow computers, are hilarious for some reason when they happen to the people in the movie.

Throw in some great acting, a good story, and the humor of Mike Judge, and you'll find one of the best movies ever made, hilarious from start to finish.
