  1. It's hard to fault a script that keeps finding new dilemmas for characters and rewards attentive viewers with in-jokes.

    For short stretches, the movie has a touch of surreal "Office Space" brilliance, but it's broadly acted, its characters are thin, and the production values are ragged. Still, it's hard to resist its goofy hostility: "You're like the drummer from REO Speedwagon. Nobody knows who you are."

    Coolidge knows he's not making "Death of a Salesman" here (he names the store managers Glen Gary and Glen Ross in tribute to David Mamet's elegy to the American Dream), but he's got the same eye for detail that made "Office Space" great. What he lacks is Arthur Miller's (or even Mike Judge's) sense for character.
  4. So achingly empty, it's nearly existential.
  5. The results in Employee of the Month are toothless.
  6. 30
    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, so instead we're supposed to get excited about which of these two idiots earns more gold stars.

    How bad does a film have to be to get the death doughnut? Disgracefully bad.

    This movie is hilarious, and has a real pull on you that makes you want to see more! There is a few loopholes, but if you can see past them, have fun and relax, you will be on the edge of your seat wondering who is too be crowned the '' Employee of the Month '' Expand

    J. Simpson is brilliant. D.Shepard is a real star and the rest do follow, you get a few laughs and a few twists and turns, this movie does have the potential to be a real family favorite and really make a name for itself, and that starts here on MetaCritic! The movie is good and you really do have fun watching it! Expand

    It really is hilarious. Dane Cook and Dax Shepard make perfectly comedic rivals here. It's a constant laugh riot with a cast of hilariously bizarre characters. It's got kind of a predictable plot line about a guy trying to impress a girl, and that leads to some predictable moments, but that doesn't make this movie any less-funny. So if you're looking for some laughs then this is a movie you should check out. Expand

    I'm not sure where the comedy was since its the genre I found this movie in. Expecting to laugh I was led into a drama of a movie that didn't make any sense. The story seemed to have had good points but overall the movie didn't piece together. Let alone, the genre and the description of the movie was not fitting - seemed very unorganized and lacking creativity. Expand

    It's completely insufferable and almost deliberately unfunny.
