It’s a closely fish-out-of-water story, since this is pretty much the person’s first time away from his isolated tribe and loads of humorous misunderstandings ensue.
Everyone has weirdness to them, however no one’s weird the same way, so there’s a really sturdy sense that this movie takes place in the actual world. Plus, now that you’re older, you’ll find a lot extra to appreciate hidden behind the initial quotability. Despite Office Space being made because the world descended into Y2K fueled chaos, its subject is timeless. Begrudging workplace workers at present commiserate with Peter simply as workers from the ’50s most likely would have, albeit with a bit extra confusion as to how folks fit a computer on a desk.
There’s a lot menial monotony inherent in workplace work that there’s no means we’re anywhere near Office Space not being related. It’s half the reason Office Space and The Office can exist in the same world and never really feel redundant. People have boring jobs and they need to watch someone make fun of their jobs.

There’s winking on the digital camera, nevertheless it’s never done in a method that undermines its core concept. Everything these vampires encounter is treated the best way a ramshackle school house may treat it. If they didn’t do this, the movie would crumble.
