Critic Reviews for Employee of the Month
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.
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.
There are people who think Cook is funny, but you won't find any evidence of that here.
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.
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.
Audience Reviews for Employee of the Month
Competition for employee of the month hots up at the supermarket when a new girl comes on the scene. Funny movie. Good cast.
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 or so, but afterwards the film becomes tiresome, boring, and the gags fall apart. Add to that an awful cast of comedians and you have a very forgettable comedy that isn't worth your time. The film suffers from many elements that make an awful comedy. First, Dane Cook and Jessica Simpson. Boring. Awful writing, check. Directing, check. This film is a poorly crafted film that doesn't deliver anything memorable or very funny. The humor elements are tiresome and strained, and really aren't jokes you can laugh at over and over, like so many other classic comedies. Dane Cook is horrible here, he's like his stand up comedy act, and it gets boring and unfunny very quickly. There is no redeeming factor to this film, aside from the end credits. This film is a stale, unimpressive comedy that doesn't stand out due to its poor cast. The film relies on its poor cast to create its humor, and with that in mind, you can rest assure that the comedic deliver is awful. This film misses the mark, and despite having one or two decent gags, this film suffers from poor script writing and a poor cast. This could have been a better comedy. A very forgettable comedy that isn't worth watching. A missed opportunity to make a good film is squandered with poor comic material and basically poor everything. This is a film that suffers from everything that could make a bad film bad.
Dane Cook undoubtely carried this film and made it extremely funny. Jessica Simpson wasn't that bad either.
