The sound is good especially when Asia Carrera has an 'orgasm' - make sure your sub is on. The picture isn't bad but what do you expect for porn - this isn't Saving Private Ryan.

Um...I believe that the original poster was talking about last years Mike Judge movie, not a porno. Anyway, the movie is underrated. It's actually quite funny. I haven't seen the DVD, so I can't speak for the sound/video quality.

If you liked the film itself, the DVD won't disappoint. The transfer is very good, though not anamorphic, and the sound is quite nice as well. Slim on extras as well...I'd recommend it as a rental, but not as a purchase.

That response is as funny as the real movie Office Space, hehehehe.

The movie, of which you speak, has some really funny scenes, and is good a comedy all the way around. It is on my list of movies I don't have on DVD, but will be picking up soon.

Office Space is one of the funniest movies of the nineties, too bad the DVD is rather weak on the extras side.

Great movie, I bought the DVD because I liked the movie so much. I don't think that they will be coming out with a Special Edition of the DVD anytime soon, so I would recommend it if you liked the movie.

if you work in a cubicle or do a computer tech job you should certainly buy or at least rent office space. besides the fact that it is not anamorphic and doesn't have any special features it's got a good picture and great sound. there is a lot of rap music in the soundtrack that sounds really good if you have it hooked up to a system with a subwoofer. in my opinion this was the most overlooked comedy of the year.

Last New Years, I bought a PVT (Prev Viewed Tape) at a rental store because my friends cabin only has a VCR. I'd seen it before, and everyone loved it! Especially if you work in a "cube".

I laughed a lot during Office Space but mostly at the GREAT Stephen Root's performance as muttering Milton. I'm a Mike Judge fan, but I can't say I was blown away by the movie. I haven't seen it again since watching it in the theater, and haven't found enough interest within myself to buy the DVD. My friend and I still tell eachother they're not wearing enough "flair." Or whatever that word was.

Just wanted to drop in my 2 cents. I loved this movie. (As you can tell from my signature) VERY funny, one of my all time favorites. Definately would recommend.

The first half is pure gold, but once the focus shifts entirely onto the whole scam the main characters run, it looses some steam. However, it does get a lot better again with the last few minutes.
