Consensus: Employee of the Month features mediocre performances, few laughs, and a lack of satiric bite.

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.

The aggrieved employee movie genre is one of the more puzzling fads of late, since it showcases every vile prejudice and low standard imaginable.

This vapid, laugh-lite romp won't satisfy anyone. Except die-hard Jessica Simpson fans.

Employee of the Month is a film that really has some sloppy writing and on-screen gags. This is the type of film that is fairly funny for the first thirty mins… More

Dane Cook undoubtely carried this film and made it extremely funny. Jessica Simpson wasn't that bad either.
KJ Proulx
This film has one of the most basic story lines, but is one of the funniest movies of the year! This movie rocks!
