Quite frankly, it makes perfect sense that Employee Of The Month is a terrible comedy - there's no one funny involved.

Predictable, crude comedy aimed at teens.

This vapid, laugh-lite romp won't satisfy anyone. Except die-hard Jessica Simpson fans.

...there's ultimately very little here to appeal to even the most die-hard Cook fanatic.

So tossed-off and muddled it'll likely bore even the blue-collar male audience at which it's aimed.

It's predictable and formulaic, with some slapstick, visual and toilet humour that may not have you falling in the aisles, but amuses in an undemanding way.

Reasonably entertaining, though probably better as a DVD rental.

The latest in a long line of lowbrow slacker comedies of the Clerks persuasion, Employee Of The Month is funnier and smarter than most of its contemporaries.

saddest thing about this unpleasant, mirthless film is that it's photographed by Anthony Richmond.

A likeable cast is underused in this cut-price guy comedy with only the occasional laugh.

Basically, in the genre of workplace-based comedies, Employee of the Month is no Office Space, but it's nowhere near as bad as, say, Waiting, either. Watchable, but entirely forgettable.

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.

Cook's creepy smirk is downright hypnotic. You keep staring at it, seeking to find the gears and flywheels beneath the flesh, but the harder you look, the less you see.

Christopher Null

refuses to go beyond shallow observations and silly slapstick, making for an ordinary outing when that should not be the case
| Original Score: 2.5/5

Keeps a smile on your face even though there are only a couple of actual laughs along the way.

Stocked with unfunny formula.

By virtue of its title alone, is it too much to expect "Employee of the Month" to be something special, perhaps a cut above your everyday comedy? Shouldn't the jokes make that extra effort, as well as the cast?
