Predictable, crude comedy aimed at teens.

Whatever that 'it' is that comic screen stars have, Cook doesn't have it. The timing isn't there, the sparkle, the Ryan Reynolds sneer. He's just bland.
| Original Score: 1/5

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

Cook serves up some tasty laughs but Employee of the Month feels processed.
| Original Score: 2/4

You'll find 10-gallon drums of peanut butter and toilet paper by the case in the store. The only things that don't come in high volume are the laughs.

Lest anyone mistake this for a Marxist tract, there are additional riffs on Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, fat people and the developmentally disabled.

Falters due to the weak central premise ... a lot of talent and potential wasted.

Employee of the Month is a comedy as vacuous and tacky as the discount big-lot stores it imagines it is spoofing.

Frat boys and KKK members will surely love this.

It's benign and flaccid, like a neutered dog's penis.

Awful. If this doesn't kill Simpson and Cook's film careers, there is no God.

There once was a time not too long ago when Dane Cook was a luminous comedic talent. With Employee of the Month, it looks like that era is over.

The aggrieved employee movie genre is one of the more puzzling fads of late, since it showcases every vile prejudice and low standard imaginable.

You're bound to have more fun working overtime than watching Employee of the Month.

Carelessly moronic and dissolving. Overall, there doesn't seem to be much to the bargain-basement prices being brandied about in the staggeringly half-hearted Employee

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

The only two onscreen items with any star quality belong to Simpson, and they're barely contained in shirts that seem to be holding on for dear life.

Head down, eye contact to a minimum, I repeated over and over to myself whenever Simpson was on screen: "Breasts, breasts, breasts, breasts..."

Simpson has the charisma and screen presence of a wet towel.
