Sometimes a great sense of humor can help you cope with everyday stress.
Workplace comedy films can do wonders in making you smile after a long day. 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.
So grab a bottle of wine now and pour a glass or two before pressing play. These five funny workplace movies will surely make you laugh until your stomach hurts.
1. Office Space was a 1999 movie about a guy frustrated with the office environment. Although the film debuted in 1999, the situations and humor are still highly relevant to the current work environment.
Although you will be thankful for improved technology in your current work environment, you can relate to the frustration the characters felt whenever an office machine did not work when needed. The scene where the office staff slams the printer with a bat is kind of therapeutic.
2. The Devil Wears Prada (2006): You will definitely relate to this movie if you have ever had a boss that was impossible to please. 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 (2011) is a movie that talks about, well, what else, horrible bosses. We all know you don’t have to work in an office to experience what a horrible boss can do.
We definitely don’t recommend taking matters into your own hands, no matter how bad the situation at work is. The film shows us that no matter how horrible your boss is, he can’t be 100% bad.
4. The Proposal is a 2009 romantic comedy which is set in a stressful work environment.
Sandra Bullock is the pretentious and demanding boss of Ryan Reynolds. Bullock is a real pain in this movie so if you think female bosses are easy to get along with – think again.
The 2004 comedy, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy is a reminder of how each of us should not behave at work.
The best way to describe Ron Burgundy is that he’s a bully and a sexist. This funny film is a grave reminder that Ron Burgundy can exist in any workplace environment – hopefully, not yours.
Workplace comedies can help you survive the office environment. This site will give you a list of other movies that can help dissolve stress at the end of the day.
