OFFICE SPACE
1999, 20th Century Fox, 89 min, USA, Dir: Mike Judge

"Looks like somebody’s got a case of the Mondays." Cubicle worker Peter Gibbons is not a happy person: He hates his job, his boss is making him work on Saturday and his girlfriend is probably cheating on him. What’s a guy to do? Things start to change for Peter after a hypnotic suggestion frees him from the drudgery of the five-day workweek. Love, corporate fraud, Michael Bolton, efficiency experts and one very inflammatory stapler all come together in writer-director Mike Judge’s cult-comedy classic starring Ron Livingston and Jennifer Aniston.


IDIOCRACY
2006, 20th Century Fox, 84 min, Dir: Mike Judge

Mike Judge’s ahead-of-its-time sci-fi comedy predicts a time in which our collective intelligence has dropped so low that it threatens to destroy the world. When average guy Luke Wilson, sent into hibernation 500 years earlier, awakes into this brave new world, America is run by a corrupt, sociopathic former pro wrestler with severe anger-management issues, and the most popular entertainment in the land is a YouTube-esque video playlist called “Ow My Balls.”
