I’ve a lot to do before I hit the sack tonight, so this will be brief.
Employee Of The Month is a more or less charming little comedy that faithfully follows a classic formula – hero is loser, girl enters picture (Ha, a pun!), girl falls for villain, loser hero changes, wins girl, and is victorious over villain.
That wasn’t a spoiler, it was a classic plot formula that just happens to apply to this movie.
I gotta say though, predictable as it was I thoroughly enjoyed almost every minute of it. Dane Cook was surprisingly good in the lead role, and Dax Shepard was seriously freaky and wonderful as Vince, the villain (and he looks a little like Zack Braff, but in an odd, sort of albino way).
All-in-all I recommend it as a DVD rental if you like this type of movie.
