Employee Of The Month
Shallow guy comedy with Jessica Simpson


submit to reddit


Plot
Hearing that the store hottie will date the employee of the month, two slacker Costco workers vie for the honor.


Review
Employee Of The Month

Jessica Simpson follows up her role in the The Dukes Of Hazzard as another piece of eye-candy for men to compete over; in this case a cashier and box boy at the warehouse store where her character Amy unfeasibly works. While showy Vince (Dax Shepard) looks set to nab his 18th Employee Of The Month award, lazy Zack (Dane Cook) decides to smarten up his act and win the title — and hence, he hopes, Amy’s affections.
 
The cast are capable enough, but while their competition affords some laughs, underwritten characters and self-indulgent editing make this workplace comedy more Waiting… than The 40 Year Old Virgin.


Verdict
A likeable cast is underused in this cut-price guy comedy with only the occasional laugh.

Horrific!

There are very few circustances that I give a movie the lowest rating of all, in fact there are only a small handful of movies that I can think of that I have ever trully been able to give a 1/10. I usually find a small bit of enjoyment out of a movie no matter how lame, how predictable, or just how poorly made it is. However, the rare movies that have defied this are films such as Batman and Robin, The Avengers, Ocean's Twelve, Waterworld and of course the hideous movie The Postman. I wasn't ad... More
