Office Space (1999)

This movie was released in 1999 and was directed by Mike Judge. However, this movie didn’t work well at box office.

The whole story revolves around a dismayed programmer Peter Gibbons who is extremely unhappy with his work life. Obeying his girlfriend, he goes for a occupational hypnotherapy and while still in a state of trance, the hypnotist Dr. Swanson passes away. All the humor is linked with the now ultra cool Peter Gibbons and the corresponding changes.  This movie is an all time classic and deserves a place in the best comedy movies of all time.
