    It's an agreeable comedy that makes its priorities clear: It wants to be funny at the expense of almost everything else.

    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."

    This may be a just-for-fun comedy, but that shouldn't mean that it must entirely disconnect from the world.

    You're bound to have more fun working overtime than watching Employee of the Month.
  5. The results in Employee of the Month are toothless.

    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.

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

Bit of a lame story but in a lot of places it was fun to watch, especially Andy Dick. Simpson is pretty nice to look at and I'm sure she's got a lot of talent in other areas. However, acting right now really isn't one of them. I hope she'll improve and get serious and allow herself to shine in much better offerings. But you know how people love to hate some of the actors out there so she may not even get the chance. Over all the movie was okay. Could have been better. Not a total waste of the admission price.

    "Employee of the Month" is a comedy movie that can be both tediously unfunny and badly directed.

    I wouldn't even call the cardboard characters in this trainwreck one dimensional. They are more like quarter dimensional. Dane Cook once I wouldn't even call the cardboard characters in this trainwreck one dimensional. They are more like quarter dimensional. Dane Cook once again demonstrates his ineffable ability to be fully irrelevant, uncharismatic, and grossly overrated. None of the performances register even a tiny nanosecond blip on the radar screen of memory. Uggg! Oh, and did I mention how not funny this movie is? Ok, here goes....It's not funny! Expand
