  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."
  3. 50
    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.

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.

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

    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
