Storyline

Slacker Zack Bradley works as a box boy at Super Club, a warehouse club store. It is the lowest in the job hierarchy at the store. He doesn't work very hard at his job, and along with some of his fellow employee friends treats the store like his playground. Regardless, he is well liked by most of the other employees. He used to be hard working, when he was developing a dot com, but he lost all his and his grandmother's money in the process. As such, he decided not to take any risks in life while he now lives with her so as to provide her with what he considers at least a more reliable life. On the other extreme is Vince Downey, who lords an air of superiority over his fellow employees as the store's head cashier. He lives to be the store's best employee solely so that he can be named Employee of the Month, which he has been named seventeen months in a row.

Trivia

Afraid that Dax Shepard and Dane Cook resembled each other too much, movie execs asked Shepard to go blonde. See more »

Goofs

In many of the shots in which Vince is scanning and ringing up items, the beep (indicating an item has scanned) is not in sync with Vinces scanning. In one scene the beep sounds while Vince has the product up the air throwing into the box. This happens several times. See more »

Quotes

Vince: Is your name Semi because you're the size of a huge Mack truck or because you're semi-retarded?
Semi: I don't know.

A Decent,Funny Movie with a good cast
9 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

I know Jessica Simpson was horrible in this movie,but hey! What movie was she ever good in? Dane Cook does a good role,and Dax Shepard was what made me love this movie. He was hilarious,and the only movie i saw with him before Employee of the Month was Without A Paddle. Overall,a good movie suitable for at least six stars. I wonder why Dax didn't win a award for this movie. I also thought Efren Ramirez was hysterical. The movie is lacking some key elements of a good movie,but people take this movie too seriously....i mean,come on. Its just another PG-13 movie with a lot of rude remarks. But if you want to see a good movie with Dane Cook, Dax Shepard, Andy Dick and Harland Williams watch this movie.....you cant be disappointed.
