    Damn the film was starting good with a good picture of the tipical compagny working area, the caracter of the boss was great, the entertaining story about steeling the money, and the moment when they beat the printer. But what the hell about the ending . It was just like shit cause the movie message came out like: "If you have a shity office job, just shift to an easy and peacefull manual workman work, but don't do something illegal because it's bad and you won't feel good if you do something illegal"

    I'm pissed off of these "Feel-good movies" which just speak in praise of the capitalistic and conservative economical system.

    What do you guys think?

    I enjoyed it.. I just watched it because I wanted a laugh.

    If you go into anything with any expectations, your bound to be disapointed.

    Don't you get what I meant Read it again and you'll get my point

    I think it was definatly a feel good movie, but not an obvious one, I would say a feel-good movie for people who have a litlle bit of critical spirit, but not to much if you know what I mean.


    I think this movie was done to keep people calmed down, like the guy who doesn't like his job.

    Nothing changed with the time. The romans had their circus with gladiator wild animals and executed christians. Nowadays we have american movies.

    This movie is a propaganda to prevent strikes from the workers. It's just so obvious to me.

    And strikes & labor unionism are basicaly what can improve workers working conditions.

    sorry i think you see ghosts... I really don't see your point.
    Think this movie has no pretentions towards that whatsoever...
    As you say it wanna prevent strikes... i can easily say it shows how a simple employee that seems to have no influence on the company can get a real big influence... aka everyone in a firm can play an important role in the future of the firm...

    But then again i just watched and enjoyed it...

    Ah.. I see, your talking about catharsis

    Television has also been called the opium of the masses...
    Gotta keep the plebs quiet, after all.

    But perhaps your focussing a bit too much on an unintentional subtext...

    No ofenses, but I think you&#39;re naive.


    Ps: The issue isn&#39;t about enjoying or not the movie. I enjoyed a lot the scene when they beat up the machine with the baseball bat.
