View Poll Results: Your Life as a Movie (Multiple Choice)

Voters
28. You may not vote on this poll
  • Star Wars - never met my father and, when I did, he was kind of an a-hole. I have an awkward relationship with my siblings and my best friend would rather hang out with his dog.

    0 0%
  • Shawshank Redemption - had to put up with (and crawl through) a lot of crap to get to where I am today. And to make things worse, I had to do other people's taxes. A lot of them.

    3 10.71%
  • Dumb and Dumber - just when I thought I couldn't possibly be any dumber, I go ahead and do something...

    2 7.14%
  • Indiana Jones - my job is not as fun as people think. Let's unearth these samples. Where is my tiny brush?

    1 3.57%
  • World War Z - I travel way more than I would like. Often to places I really don't care for.

    2 7.14%
  • Titanic - my love life is a drawn out, sinking disaster. I have issues making room for others, even on this huge, floating piece of wood.

    4 14.29%
  • Psycho - I have an overbearing mother and that has compliacted my relationship with women. I think somebody needs room service, does this dress and wig make me look fat?

    0 0%
  • Ferris Bueller's Day Off - I'm pretty cool, life is perfect, and everything always seems to work out for me. Well, except for my movie career after this movie.

    2 7.14%
  • Office Space - the same old grind week after week. Time to put some old office equipment out of commision; play me some gangsta rap.

    7 25.00%
  • Billy Madison - I still have not grown up as a person, but I get to do pretty much whatever I want. Now, for that extra credit question...

    2 7.14%
  • Forrest Gump - women treat me like dirt, but I love them anyway. My life is like a box of chocolates.

    2 7.14%
  • Shawn of the Dead - I'm surrounded by mindless zombies, but at least I can go to the bar. I never plan ahead, but things always seem to work out.

    3 10.71%
  • Prometheus - feels like I've traveled very far for some answers, but instead just got my ***** kicked. Who thought this was a good idea, anyway?

    1 3.57%
  • The Naked Gun - am I the only one that notices all the ridiculous and funny things going on around me? I bet this OJ Simpson guy will be on TV a lot someday.

    7 25.00%
  • Airplane! - circumstance has thrown me into the pilot's seat and I'm sweating more than Ted Striker trying to land a plane. I might also have a drinking problem.

    3 10.71%
  • The Fast and the Furious - life is great at 100mph! Don't ask me to slow down, just move out of my way. Is this the only thing Vin Diesel claims on his taxes anymore?

    0 0%
  • Jaws - never leaving college, as I'm terrified of what might be in those waters called real life. I might just need a bigger boat.

    0 0%
  • Spaceballs - my life seems to be moving at ludicrous speed, but I don't know how to slow down. I still play with action figures and I'm in a bit of a power trip at times. F*ck Planet Druidia!

    0 0%
  • The Notebook - what my perfect life would be like. Who cares that Ryan Gosling has no facial expression? Look at that body!

    1 3.57%
  • Tommy Boy - I'll eventually take over my dad's business. Hopefully not anytime soon, as I seem to f*ck up everything I touch.

    0 0%
  • Harry Potter - because I still believe in magic and stuff. Anyone seen my 20 sided dice?

    1 3.57%

    Re: Saturday Night Poll: Your Life as a Movie Plot

    I'm a cross between Office Space and The Pentagon Wars. In fact, I actually work in the same PEO as the Bradley (if you've seen The Pentagon Wars, you know what I'm talking about - in fact, that movie isn't far off from the truth).

    I remember The Pentagon Wars. Underrated movie and a nice satire of how government spending works.

    Agree. And not just government. If you work managing projects and budgets in your company, you see many of the same ridiculous things happening.
