Employee of the Month
When a pair of ultra-competitive clerks at a discount super store discovers that a beautiful, newly-transferred cashier has a reputation for only dating employees who have won the coveted Employee of the Month award, their desperate efforts to earn the title and get the girl lead to a hilarious war of one-upmanship in this winner-takes-all comedy starring Dane Cook, Jessica Simpson, and Dax Shepard. Zack Bradley (Cook) and Vince Downey (Shepard) have been working at the cavernous Super Club for ten years and counting, but while the ambitious Vince has advanced to the position of head cashier… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Amy is little more than a pretty face, undermining the film's female appeal and leading one to wonder if Dukes of Hazzard eye candy Simpson is becoming a trifle typecast."
‑ Anna Smith, Time Out
"There's a crumb of an idea to setting a movie at a mega-mart that makes the Office Space cubicles look like executive suites, but the results in Employee of the Month are toothless."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"Quite frankly, it makes perfect sense that Employee Of The Month is a terrible comedy - there's no one funny involved."
‑ Ali Gray, TheShiznit.co.uk
"...there's ultimately very little here to appeal to even the most die-hard Cook fanatic."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Reasonably entertaining, though probably better as a DVD rental."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"There's a great Office Space-style satire to be made about big-box stores screwing their working-poor employees, but Hollywood studios covet DVD rack space at those same stores."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"Rarely has an actress exuded such blank nothingness as Simpson, a one-woman vapid delivery system who sucks the energy and joy out of every scene she's in, like some freakishly well-endowed black hole."
‑ Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"Predictable, crude comedy aimed at teens."
‑ Jane Boursaw, Common Sense Media
"So tossed-off and muddled it'll likely bore even the blue-collar male audience at which it's aimed."
‑ Frank Lovece, Film Journal International
"The latest in a long line of lowbrow slacker comedies of the Clerks persuasion, Employee Of The Month is funnier and smarter than most of its contemporaries."
‑ Paul Arendt, BBC.com
"There are people who think Cook is funny, but you won't find any evidence of that here."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"The aggrieved employee movie genre is one of the more puzzling fads of late, since it showcases every vile prejudice and low standard imaginable."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"This vapid, laugh-lite romp won't satisfy anyone. Except die-hard Jessica Simpson fans."
‑ Jamie Russell, Film4
"It's predictable and formulaic, with some slapstick, visual and toilet humour that may not have you falling in the aisles, but amuses in an undemanding way."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"saddest thing about this unpleasant, mirthless film is that it's photographed by Anthony Richmond."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
