Mike Judge: T.G.I. Fridays No Longer Has Employees Wear 'Flair' Because Of 'Office Space'

June 18th, 2014 8:01pm EDT
Jennifer Aniston and Mike Judge in Office Space
Mike Judge recently discussed the cult status that his 1999 workplace parody Office Space has gained, revealing that a certain chain restaurant has changed the way it does business following the success of the film.

Produced on a budget that barely broke the eight-digit mark, "Office Space" became the must-see film for anyone that works under rectangular fluorescent lights and in the cramped space of an office cubicle all day.

The film features an eatery called Chotchkie's, which is based on restaurant franchise T.G.I. Fridays, and goes on to poke fun at all the "flair" that the chain req...

Celebrities That Turn 50 In 2012
The year was 1962, John F. Kennedy was President of the United States and the cold war with Russia was in full swing as the world witnessed the Cuban Missile Crisis. Also in 1962, Marilyn Monroe died of a drug overdose at the age of 36 and Johnny Carson took over the duties of "The Tonight Show." Landmark movies that hit the big screen in '62 included "Lawrence of Arabia" and "To Kill a Mockingbird." The Academy Award winner for best picture that year was none other than "West Side Story."

We think you'll be surprised at how young many of today's popular celebrities look who were born in ...

August 17th, 2011 6:00pm EDT
Beavis & Butthead
When Beavis and Butt-Head first appeared on MTV in 1993, critics railed against the idiocy of two idle teens who did little more than watch TV and make snide comments. Today we know they were ahead of their time and as the world prepares for the triumphant return of the ultimate pop culture commentators, fans everywhere can relive the greatest moments of the original series when Beavis and Butt-Head: Mike Judge’s Most Wanted debuts on DVD October 4, 2011.

'Beavis And Butt-Head' Make Fun Of 'Jersey Shore' In First Look At Their Return To TV From Comic-Con (Hilarious Video)

July 22nd, 2011 1:30pm EDT
Beavis And Butt-Head
Yessss! Beavis And Butt-Head are back!

During the show's panel at Comic-Con on Thursday, creator Mike Judge revealed why he's bringing the show back and gave the audience a five-minute sneak peek - which is hilarious and gives us the sense that the show hasn't skipped a beat after all these years - or as Judge called it, "Timeless."

This time around, the dynamically dumb duo pick on MTV's shows (Jersey Shore, 16 & Pregnant, Teen Mom) and spoof movies (Twilight) instead of music videos, and Judge says they'll even be watching UFC fights.

When asked why he's chosen to bring the hit 90s sho...

Here Come Beavis and Butt-head… Again
It's been quite a while since we've seen Beavis and Butt-head on the small screen, about 13 years to be exact. Rumors that new episodes were to be created began surfacing last week and now MTV has confirmed that they are in the works from creator Mike Judge. The show originally ran on MTV from 1993 - 97, featuring some 300 episodes on MTV and a full featured movie titled "Beavis & Butt-head Do America" in 1996.

From there, creator Mike Judge went on to create "King of the Hill" for fox as well as the cult-classic movie "Office Space." Last year Judge also released "Extract" and used the f...

Trailer Talk - This Week In Movies: '9,' 'Whiteout' & More

September 8th, 2009 9:03am EDT
Whiteout
I've heard good reviews of the Mike Judge comedy "Extract" that came out last week, and I might add it to my list of movies to see, which still includes "District 9" and "Cold Souls." I haven't had as much time to make it to the movie theater lately as I've wanted to.

An unusual combination of movies hits theaters this week: two documentaries, one animated film, two thrillers, and a comedy. Premiering at the box office this week are "9," "I Can Do Bad All By Myself," "Whiteout," "Sorority Row," "The September Issue," and "Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour." ...

Review: 'Extract' Is Funny But Not What Expected

September 3rd, 2009 9:44am EDT
Extract
"Extract" is not quite what was expected. Sure, it's funny. Sure, the awkward uncomfortableness of previous Mike Judge films ("Office Space," "Idiocracy") is here. There's just something, well, different. Certainly not in a bad way. There's just something a little more Grown Up about "Extract." If "Office Space" is the equivalent of a 25 year old human being, "Extract" represents that same entity at 38. And there are plenty of comparisons to be made to "Office Space."

Jason Bateman plays Joel (a mature and barely less disillusioned Peter Gibbons), the owner of an vanilla extract plant wh...

Q&A: Dustin Milligan On Being A Male Gigolo In 'Extract' & Leaving '90210' For Good

Dustin Milligan
Dustin Milligan, formerly Ethan Ward of the new "90210," (Sorry ladies, he says there's no chance in hell he's returning) co-stars in the new Mike Judge directed film "Extract" (full review tomorrow). We've seen the film, and Dustin does his best to steal the scene as male gigolo Brad from co-stars Jason Bateman and Ben Affleck - notorious scene stealers themselves.

Dustin discusses what it's like to work on a Mike Judge film, his childhood porn watching habits and figuring out why Kristen Wiig thinks he's a perv.

Mike: The production notes from "Extract" describe Brad as a "dull-wi...

'Beavis And Butt-Head' Return To Promote Mike Judge's New Film, 'Extract' (Video)

September 2nd, 2009 11:04am EDT
Beavis and Butt-Head Mike Judge Extract
Jason Bateman, Ben Affleck, Mila Kunis and Kristen Wiig star in writer/director Mike Judge's (Office Space) latest film about an extract factory owner (Bateman) who is going through a multitude of personal and work-related problems in his life, such as a cheating wife and an unfortunate mishap with a worker in his plant.

To help promote the film Judge resurrected two of his most classic characters, Beavis and Butt-Head, to share their thoughts about the film. According to the pair of 90s nit-wits, "Extract" is "an important new film" with a guy named 'Bateman' in it. You can probably se...

Mike Judge Takes The Boss's Side In 'Extract'

August 31st, 2009 11:15am EDT
Extract
Mike Judge stuck it to the man with Office Space. The working man's anthem let the cubicle grunts get revenge on their bosses. Now in his latest comedy Extract, he takes the boss's side. Jason Bateman plays the owner of an extract factory, full of slacker employees.

This represents Judge's own transition from working stiff to media mogul. "I had worked so many jobs, by the time I got into animation, I was pushing 30," Judge said. "I'd already had so many jobs and I was always the employee, never had anybody working for me. Suddenly, when Beavis and Butthead happened, I had 30 to 90 peop...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Gamer,' 'Extract' & More

August 31st, 2009 11:11am EDT
Gamer
Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds" is my recommendation for the must-see movie of the summer. Anyone who has an appreciation for Tarantino's films will love this WWII epic.

Divided into chapters like his other directorial work, this story follows a much more linear path than earlier movies, but it still reflects his unique style and flair. Musically "Inglourious Basterds" feels like one part spaghetti western, one part 80s rock ballad, elevating the intensity of emotions and violence in a number of scenes.

As Lt. Aldo Raine, Brad Pitt is a crude, ruthless, brutally honest ...

'Arrested Development' Cast: Where Are They Now?

March 7th, 2009 11:35am EST
Arrested Development
The family that chicken dances together, stays together. With the February 24 announcement that Michael Cera - the lone holdout - had finally signed on for the long-rumored Arrested Development movie, message boards went bonkers for Bluth bananas.

Cera is easily the most successful and visible post-Bluth. With SuperBad, Juno, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist and Sundance darling Paper Heart, this kid has perfected the tentatively awkward comedic timing that made you root for the love story of George Michael and his cousin Maeby.

Where have the Bluths been since we last laughed a...

TV Stars We'd Like To See On The Big Screen

March 6th, 2008 2:34pm EST
Stephen Colbert
Television. It's a compelling medium in itself - but also frequently acts as a launching pad for actors chasing big screen dreams. To think that full-fledged movie stars like Tom Hanks, Jennifer Aniston, George Clooney, and Katherine Heigl all got their big breaks on television shows. So, who should the next TV-turned-movie star be? Here's our Top 10 List to get you thinking.

10. Morena Baccarin. Beauty meshed with an all-around intriguing persona should make Morena Baccarin a natural pick for big film projects. Yet, somehow she's flown largely under the radar, instead developing a str...
