20 Of The Best Workplace Movies To Get You Ready For Going Back To The Office
Office Space, Clockwatchers, Being John Malkovich, and 17 other titles that'll bring the watercooler chat to the comfort of your home.
You've spent the last year and a half calling your couch your workstation and having to have watercooler conversations only with your cat. But now your office is starting to open back up, and you will be expected to be around people all day. That can feel overwhelming, which is why I compiled 20 movies that will help you prepare for the sometimes wonderful, sometimes horrifying reality of being back at the office.
Work sucks, I know. It's no secret that jobs are often extremely boring. These five movies excel at showing just how brutally dull work often is.
Up in the Air (2009)
Office Space (1999)
Cabin in the Woods (2011)
Burn After Reading (2008)
Yes, it's a bummer when work is kinda dull, but that is nothing compared to when your office feels like a place of terror that you genuinely dread going to every day. These five movies perfectly demonstrate what it's like when work is a living nightmare.
Horrible Bosses (2011)
The Assistant (2019)
Two Days, One Night (2014)
9 to 5 (1980)
You usually don't get to choose your coworkers, but they often are the people you end up closest to because of the amount of time you spend together. These five movies remind us that the real treasure is the friendship you make along the way.
Monsters Inc. (2001)
The Intern (2015)
Finding love at work sounds great, but in reality, it often gets extremely messy and complex. These five movies offer a few different perspectives on the pros and cons of an office romance.
