Picture from Employee of the Month
Overall C-

While Zack (Dane Cook) shows up for work each day and does as little as possible, his enthusiastic coworker Vince (Dax Shepard) is busy winning the Employee of the Month award. But when a pretty blonde (Jessica Simpson) joins the crew, the slacker suddenly has good incentive to give his overachiever buddy a run for his title. And the scriptwriters are willing to use whatever crude humor or stereotypical characters it takes to help him to get the job done.

Violence B
Sexual Content C
Profanity D
Substance Use B

MPAA Rating: PG-13 for crude and sexual humor, and language.

Employee of the Month

What are some of the different reasons affecting an employee’s performance? Do you think those motivated by extrinsic goals (like winning a car or a girlfriend) would do a better job than those who are intrinsically motivated (meaning they have an inner desire or personal ethic) to be better workers?
