Office Space is great, I think it works OK as a standalone comedy, but you might get more out of it if... You've ever worked in a modern office. In a cubicle. In IT. For a soulless multinational corporation.
I had never worked in a cubicle environment before the first time I saw Office Space, so it was lost on me. It was a few years later that I was able to appreciate it, while ekeing out my life trapped and languishing in a cubicle, numbed by the constant radiation of cathode rays from a computer monitor in order to make a better life for myself. It was only then that I found that movie funny, but also a wakeup call; that I'd better try to get something else going for me, lest I become a lemming totally dependent on my job.
Idiocracy is definitely a sad commentary on where the human race may be headed (I'm sorry to say that I think Devo was right; the human race is regressing). The most popular TV show in Idiocracy, "Ow! My Balls!", seems to be the inevitable direction that television has taken lately, which is why I stopped watching it 10 years ago. There's so much more to life than mindlessly sitting in front of the boob-tube shoveling junk food into your pie-hole after already having spent 8 hours sitting in a cubicle and staring at a computer screen and growing more sedentary and more obese and stupider by the minute, yet a large portion of civilized society does exactly that. I'll admit I do spend time on the internet, but at least the internet is interactive.
OK, that's enough internet for today.
I'm going outside.
Life! Life, do you hear me?! Give my creation LI-I-IFE!
