New Releases: New DVD Version of Cubicle Classic

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 2:33 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Office Space is the cult classic about working for corporate America. In case you weren't one of the 3.5 million who bought the original DVD, here is the summary from the Internet Movie Database:
Peter Gibbons just can't seem to catch a break. His girlfriend is cheating on him, he has an obnoxious neighbor, and he's completely miserable with his job as a small cog in a company called Initech. Then he visits a hypnotherapist, who dies just after putting Peter into a state of complete bliss. Free of worrying about making a living, he no longer feels the need to keep his job, just as the company is going through a massive downsizing. However, his new attitude only makes him more valuable in the company's eyes, and his friends Michael and Samir are fired instead. Together, they scheme to plant a virus inside Initech's computer system that will pull money into their own account.

There is new version titled Office Space: Special Edition with Flair. The new features include outtakes, a behind-the-scenes documentary, and animated shorts from creator Mike Judge that inspired the movie
