The vehicle that Vince tries to win is supposed to be a brand new 2005 Chevy Malibu. The actual name of that car is Chevy Classic. The vehicle shown in the movie is the 5th generation Malibu sold between 1997 and 2003. The Malibu was completely redesigned in 2004, but the 5th Gen design carried over for 2004 and 2005 to rental car companies and fleet sales and was renamed Chevy Classic. See more »

this movie is actually good!
28 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I gotta be honest. I didn't expect much from this movie for about 1000 reasons but it really took me by surprise. It's HILARIOUS! I loved it so much that, by the end, I wanted to work in the Costco with all of them. The entire cast is solid - my favorite being Dax Sheppard. He is a comedic genius! I don't know how the makers were able to do it but they even managed to get a good performance from Jessica Simpson. I wanted to hate her but I just couldn't. She's very likable and genuine in this movie. And the best part is - they don't have any of her songs on the soundtrack. Employee of the Month is a quirky comedy with a substantial story and charming characters. Definitely a movie worth checking out!
