'Office Space' Is Favorite Workplace Movie with 'Nine to Five' a Close Second

'Office Space' Is Favorite Workplace Movie; 'Nine to Five' Aging Gracefully

Looks like workplace movie fans are as passionate about Office Space as Milton is about his red stapler.

In a recent poll, 438 participants voted Office Space their favorite work-themed movie at 37 percent. Following closely with 30 percent is the 1980 classic Nine to Five starring Lily Tomlin, Dabney Coleman, Dolly Parton, and Jane Fonda.

"Like Nine to Five, Office Space was about workers who rebelled against their greedy, soulless employer and it really resonated with a lot of disgruntled cubicle dwellers," said Chris Ceplenski, editor. "Considering that Nine to Five is almost 20 years older than Office Space,' that it's still so popular is really impressive."

Rounding out the top five were Working Girl (20 percent), Wall Street (12 percent) and Clockwatchers (1 percent).
