Rambler – Which movie is this?

Released in 1999, this satirical comedy film made only a slight profit when first released in cinemas, but sold well on home video and has become a modern cult classic. Filmed in Dallas and Austin, Texas, it was based on a cartoon series, and satirised the culture around software companies of that era. Several aspects of the film have become well known even beyond it, such as a printer-destroying rampage, red Swingline staplers, and ‘ummmmm I’m gonna need you to go ahead and come in tomorrow, mmmkay?’ This was creator Mike Judge’s first foray into live action film and starred Ron Livingston, Gary Cole, Stephen Root and Jennifer Aniston.
