How is the classic and hilarious Office Space the least guessed answer? If you haven't seen the movie, you should!

It took me a while to figure out because the clues weren't clicking in my head properly. If it mentioned the printer destroying scene, then I definitely would have gotten it. But then again, that might be too easy...

It kind of does reference the printer destroying scene with the "PC Load Letter" clue. Although "Federal Prison" isn't really a good clue.

Not really. Especially since Grease came out about 20 years before the clue's date.

So... it also couldn't be Casablanca? Especially since neither Grease nor Casablanca feature nasty plastic cliques? I'm not sure what you're not seeing here, man.
