As hard as it is to believe, there really don't seem to be that many feature films in which staplers play an important part. Behind the scenes, we are sure, staplers are a vital cog in the production of any movie. But on-screen time has been noticibly lacking in recent years... with several notable exceptions. So check out these celluoid testaments to the stapler... ready for their close-up, indeed! |

Perhaps the greatest momument to staplers ever committed to film, Office Space marks the feature-film debut of Mike Judge, creator of Beavis & Butthead. Besides being a very funny little movie, it is also counted amongst the few that rely upon staplers as major plot points. If you work in an office, know people who work in an office, or just like staplers... buy this movie! Or, check out every scene the stapler appears in... right here!
Seriously, ya gotta love a movie that puts a stapler right on the front of the box. This is the kind of recognition we need if staplers are to take their rightful positions as movie stars, as well as behind-the-scenes jack-of-all-trades!
Buy a red Swingline stapler.
And... well, that's about the only one we could find so far. So if you know of a movie that presents staplers in a positive role, please let us know.
