Oct 14, 2019Dane Cook delivers the laughs in the screwball comedy Employee of the Month. When a new cashier catches the eye of stock boy Zack Bradley, he attempts to win her favor by winning employee of the month; but to do so he'll have to defeat the current 17 time champion Vince Downey. Cook gives a solid performance, as do his co-stars Jessica Simpson and Dax Shepard. And the comedy is especially well-done, providing some clever and humorous satire about big-box stores. Still, it's a pretty formulaic rom-com, with the usual clichés. Yet while it may lack in originality, Employee of the Month is fun and entertaining.
Dec 13, 2011Employee 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.
