Sometimes you need to have a good laugh at the end of a stressful day.
Funny workplace movies are sure to make you smile if not laugh out loud. These movies will definitely make you think of similar office scenarios and adventures.
It’s possible that you love your job, or on the verge of leaving it – it’s still great to laugh out loud once in a while.
Get your wine bottle out or grab a couple of beers before you plop in front of the TV. These five comedies can make you think (and laugh out loud) about your work situation now!
1. Office Space is a 1999 movie about the usual office environment and a character who had had enough of the grind. It’s amazing that after almost two decades, the film is still relevant to all of us experiencing frustrations at the workplace.
You can definitely relate to the frustration whenever the scenes were about office tools and machines that did not work when you needed them desperately. The scene where the office staff slams the printer with a bat is kind of therapeutic.
2. The Devil Wears Prada is a 2006 movie about a boss that was definitely impossible to deal with. Newbie Anne Hathaway was stuck with terrible boss Meryl Streep who made her learn her job in the most difficult manner.
You may not be working in a workplace as fashionable as the one in the movie, but we’re pretty sure you have had some experience being part of the awkward mentor-mentee relationship.
3. Horrible Bosses is a 2011 film that shows how bosses can be difficult to work with. We all know you don’t have to work in an office to experience what a horrible boss can do.
The movie is fictional, of course, so don’t start plotting how to kill your boss. This movie is also a gentle reminder that not all bosses are that horrible.
4. The Proposal (2009) is a romantic comedy that also tackles difficulties at the workplace.
Sandra Bullock is the pretentious and demanding boss of Ryan Reynolds. Reynolds’ plans to advance his career is botched by the bad management style of Bullock.
Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy is a 2004 film which show how one can behave so terribly in a professional setting.
The best way to describe Ron Burgundy is that he’s a bully and a sexist. The movie is definitely hilarious, although we hope nothing like it happens in today’s professional environment.
