Office Space



Although our site is very popular, the current economic climate has reduced our revenues just when we need extra security to prevent attacks from hackers who don't like what we do. If you think what we do is worthwhile, please donate or become a member.


Unlike the MPAA we do not assign one inscrutable rating based on age, but 3 objective ratings for SEX/NUDITY, VIOLENCE/GORE and PROFANITY on a scale of 0 to 10, from lowest to highest, depending on quantity and context.

Sex & Nudity
Violence & Gore
1 to 10

MPAA Rating: R

Fed up with office politics and corporate culture, Ron Livingston stops working -- and starts getting promoted. Jennifer Aniston, David Herman, Ajay Naidu, Gary Cole, Stephen Root, Alexandra Wentworth, Todd Duffey and John C. McGinley co-star.

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Lots of sexual innuendo and one kiss. In a dream, a shirtless man holds a woman's foot above his shoulder (we see nothing more than the woman's foot and the man's torso and face, but it's implied that they're having intercourse). On a television program, a topless woman demonstrates how to perform a breast examination. A woman wears a revealing halter-top and in another scene she wears only a T-shirt.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A man falls out of his chair and dies from a heart attack. A man tries to kill himself by inhaling carbon monoxide fumes (he fails). A truck smashes into the side of a car; we later see the driver of the car in a wheelchair with casts all over his body. Three men destroy a computer by kicking, punching, and hitting it with a bat. A man slices a fish's belly and pulls out its slimy, slightly bloody intestines. We see a building engulfed in flames.

PROFANITY 9 - Nearly 30 F-words (many are heard in songs), lots of anatomical and scatological references, lots of mild obscenities and several racial slurs heard in rap songs. Twice, someone makes an obscene finger gesture. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Work, corporate culture, hypnotherapy, embezzlement, revenge.

MESSAGE - No one likes to work, but most of us have to.

Special Keywords: S5 - V3 - P9 - MPAAR

Our Ratings Explained

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
