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.

Why is Employee of the Month rated PG-13? Employee of the Month is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for crude and sexual humor, and language.

It’s a stretch to imagine this movie motivating anyone to be a better employee, as the “redeeming” message is buried at the end of a long string of negative behaviors, sexual jokes and profanities (which include various crude terms describing sex). In this “workplace” the objectification of women (especially Jessica Simpson’s bust), stereotyped minorities, as well as verbal abuse and bullying are seen as everyday behavior. Physical violence is limited to a security guard tackling a man. Some social drinking is included.
