Product Description

Product Description

Comedy starring Dane Cook, Jessica Simpson, and Dax Shepard. Zack Bradley (Cook) and Vince Downey (Shepard) have been working at the cavernous Super Club for ten years and counting, but while the ambitious Vince has advanced to the position of head cashier and landed 17 consecutive 'E of M' awards, laid-back Zack is content to simply sit back and enjoy the company of his fellow box boys. Longtime rivals whose conflicting attitudes as to what constitutes success has led to more than a few conflicts, Vince and Zack find their bitter battle for Super Club supremacy coming to a head when attractive new employee Amy (Simpson) transfers over from another store.

By Martin Turner HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 22 May 2012
Format: DVD
Employee of the Month is a sports movie that involves almost no sports -- the simple tale of a man who must win a one-on-one competition in order to get the girl transposed into the unheroic world of discount outlet clerks. The nod to all those other sports movies is a few moments of softball. Given that this movie is by nature slighter than all of the films it is responding to, the story works extraordinarily well, and, although you know how it is intended to end, in the final minutes you will really be doubting.

The quirky take on the story line is supported by some beautifully quirky performances by the minor characters, especially the semi-bonkers granny who spurs protagonist Zack on to accomplishing the task he was really meant for.

I put off watching this film for several years simply because the premise sounded so small-scale and trivial, and the plot so formulaic. Somehow the writers, cast and directors conjure something quite different from what I expected. If you sketch the plot out it would seem to be completely standard fare: protagonist has to come back from a nearly lost position to draw level, but loses is nerve right before the final contest as he loses the girl, his friends and his reason for playing. Words from the wise granny rekindle the flame, the friends rally round him, and he makes it to the final. Actually, this completely belies what the film is about, with real emotional weight being attached to the symbolism of the cashier's lounge, the daily gold stars and the motivations of the minor characters.

When the climax comes -- and it is completely not what you're expecting -- it is a character you have more or less ignored who turns the story around.

I was expecting to give this two stars. Five instead. I shall be watching again.

If you take Employee of the Month TOO seriously you won't get it. If you haven't worked with someone like Vince (Dax Shepherd) you might not get it. If you are a Vince, you REALLY will not get it.

Set in one of those bulk buy warehouse emporiums in the States (think Macro over here)it's the basic story of loafer Zack trying to get the Employee of the Month award so that he can go out with Jessica Simpson, the new cashier. Trouble lies with the fact he has to beat Vince who has won it every month and will stop at nothing to win the top prize for this month - a new car.

All good fun, Jessica Simpson actually turning in good performance and the two leads showing why they are always watchable.

A very very funny Blooper reel in the extras.

Well worth adding to your collection.

You wouldn't think something as slight as "Employee Of The Month" for God's sake could be so enjoyable - but it is. I liked this funky little warehouse romp a lot. However - you've probably noticed that the majority of the reviews are for the 'DVD' and if you want to upgrade to a BLU RAY and you live in the UK - there's a problem...

Even if it is cheapish the American release on Lionsgate is REGION A LOCKED - so it won't play on our machines unless they're chipped to be 'all regions' (which few are). Avoid I’m afraid.

And until such time as someone sees fit to release this film on our side of the pond – here’s another good time movie denied us by the silly restrictions of Region Coding...

This is another one of that endless stream of puerile knockabout American `loser finds redemption in order to get the girl' comedies that the cinemas seem inundated with these days. Dane Cook's a nobody shelf stacker at a supermarket. But in order to get the girl of his dreams he has to become employee of the month, overtaking an old rival who has held the accolade for 17 months in a row. It has every cliché in the book, but is strangely addictively watchable. I was hooked and laughing all the way through, even though the pretentious film snob residing in my head was snorting in disgust and yelling to hit the off switch. It's a very funny brainless comedy, 4 stars.

I thought this film was great,the title and story don't sound very appealing but believe me it's well worth getting,although it has been described as a rom-com i didn't really see it like that although my other half also enjoyed it and she love's her rom-com's!.To me though the characters and the setting made this,there are scenes that i found hilarious,those with the optic's guy were very very funny,all of them brought something to their roles.Although different i found the film had a similar feel to "40 year old virgin" in the sense that the guy's all worked together and were buddies,you could watch this with a load of mates and it'd be a good laugh.The cast were well chosen,Simpson was more than a token "bimbo" and Dax Shepherd with his sidekick were great.The special feature's on the dvd are well worth a look.All in all very pleasantly surprised,go buy!.

The format for this film seemed familiar.
Slacker (but happy go lucky) boy meets attractive girl. Slacker boy attempts to improve his slacker ways in order to bump uglies with attractive girl and beat achieving boy (who despite being achieving, manages to be achieving in a condesending, arrogant, bad guy way. With loyal sidekick). Slacker boy at first fails to impress attractive girl. Achieving, yet bad-guy boy appears to be winning. Slacker boy starts to shine, thus iniating a battle with achieving boy, and at the same time alienating his old slacker buddies. The crux of the film, he completley alienates and loses his old slacker buddies, he loses the attractive girl when she finds out his master plan and the battle of the slacker vs acheiver goes down to the final day/match. Cue the last day and in an attempt to offset this fast becoming cliché of a story and slacker's plans do not immediately go to plan but he is the ultimate winner of love, friendship, status & life in general. Smacks of familiarity? I thought so.

This routine for a film is becoming ever popular. Yes you could shift the set from supermarket to dodgeball court/ gym (er dodgeball) or a high school (american pie). One could even delve in to the 1980's for inspiration (teen wolf?). All have slight variations on this theme. I mean crikey - this must be a concurrent underlying theme to god knows how many soaps, teen tv series, kids cartoon shows. I guess I really shouldn't be surprised. But for this reason it did not shine as an original comedy. Despite me not having seen a film set completley in a supermarket before.

Now Employee of the month wasn't all bad- it had funny moments. Some laugh out loud moments.
