Waitress Joanna (Jennifer Aniston) has a talk with her boss (Mike Judge) in "Office Space." - 

It’s been two decades since Peter Gibbons and his co-workers took their company’s printer into a field and bashed it to smithereens.

“Office Space,” the 1999 classic about workplace culture and everything horribly wrong with it, celebrates its 20th anniversary today. Directed by Mike Judge, the film features frustrated programmer Gibbons (played by Ron Livingston) dealing with his smug boss, Bill Lumbergh (played by Gary Cole). 

It's a rich genre, with movies that feature climbing up the corporate work ladder ("Working Girl"), falling down the corporate work ladder ("Wall Street") and the struggles of work-life balance ("The Devil Wears Prada").
