I really liked this movie. Very funny. Didn't watch it for the longest time because I am not a big Jessica Simpson fan. Was really glad I finally watched it. Highly recommend for a good laugh.

"This was an enjoyable film. My big problem is that it is a standard formula film that I have seen a dozen times over. They really added nothing new to the equation. You have a likeable slacker who lives with his grandmother and works a nowhere job for a Sam's Club type company. You have a mean nemisis who is the head cashier. Enter a new employee, a drop dead gorgeous girl and the slacker takes it on himself to win her over by being a good employee and become employee of the month. He then has to battle the mean nemisis with a bunch of gags with his group of strange friends. Then at the end, he has a misunderstanding with the girl when some of his lies and deeds come out. But in the end he redeems himself and all is good. Cook is good in the role. I would have like to see him ad lib some more and make the movie more his own. Simpson is okay, her big contribution to the movie is various low cut tops. Dax I thought was great with his Pedro like boxer. A fair budget and decent acting save this one. I would rent it first rather than making a blind buy."

"I can't believe I'm saying this but I must. I enjoyed watching `Employee of the Month' starring Dane Cook and the infamous Jessica Simpson in this light-hearted comedy/romance about finding love and selling in bulk. I didn't intend to watch this film because I thought it was going to be yet another vehicle for Miss Simpson to giggle and jiggle her way to the top of the Hollywood food chain. However I was eventually swayed at my daughters insistance and agreed to a viewing.

It definitely was not what I expected. Dane Cook was quite enjoyable in the part of Zack, box boy at the local Super-Club mega store and Jessica Simpson played it straight and somewhat subdued in her role as Amy, the stores new cashier.

Obviously there's nothing deep or profound here, just good, clean fun that the whole family can enjoy. Watch and see who's the greatest cashier of them all!"
Cute at times, it ultimately drowns in cliche themes

"Employee of The month isn't bad, but that is the problem; it really isn't anything special. A comical look at a variety of people who work at a store called "Super Club". Super Club is a store much like Sam's Club or Costco, where concrete floors span what seem like miles of products sold in bulk. The film centers on Zack (Dane Cook) who has been a box boy there for years. Zack suddenly decides to take on Vince (Dax Shepard) whose claim to fame is being the "fastest checker" in the Southwest. With a grand prize waiting at the end of the month of a stock Chevy Malibu (complete with Pleather) the two are in for a battle to the finish as the best employee. In the middle of it all is a new employee named Amy (Jessica Simpson) who the two also try to win over.

The film isn't all what the previews show. Past the spoofs that surround the entitlement Vince feels as the ultimate checker, and amidst pranks and follies that fill the aisles are themes of the little guy getting his respect back. At times you can take Cook's character seriously but with the Jessica Simpson able to do nothing more for her character than smile, look cute and say a line now and again, the film falls way short of anything classic and lands in the mediocre bucket. It's not a bad film; just not something that I think has any value in repeated viewings down the road. Seems to tread along the lines of films like "The 40 year old virgin", and isn't even close to the classic workplace comedy of something such as "Office Space".

The director did get some rehash value out of the guy we all know as "Pedro" from Napoleon Dynamite in Efren Ramirez playing the part of Jorge. Jorge is Vince's sidekick and although funny at times, can't even keep up the laughs when the film continually tries to build up jokes around Vince's 1981 Honda. Or was it an 82 maybe? Unfortunately by the end, it really doesn't matter."
