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. If he is named Employee of the Month for a record eighteenth time in a row, he will be rewarded with entrance into the ... Written by Huggo

Really only one thing wrong with it.
8 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay, so they assembled a cast of mostly known comic actors, with up-and-comer Dane Cook at the helm. (Note, this is before everyone realized he is just an unfunny hack.) Punk'd alumn Dax Sheppard gives "street cred," Harlan Wilson brings in the stoner crowd, Andy Dick is Andy Dick*, so you should know if that appeals to you or not. They put together a workable, if derivative and not terribly developed scenario. They only seem to have forgotten one thing.

To put in any jokes. I counted a total of 5 slapstick moments, 3 of which were passably funny. There were multiple abortive attempts at one-liners, too few of which were recognizable enough to give an accurate count. All Ad-libbing seemed to consist of random words strung together by Wilson and Dick, with no real attention to humor. Ultimately, a waste of an hour and change, but not an excruciating waste. This movie is like a place-holder movie, what you watch when you don't have the movie you meant to watch, but still need to kill a little time. Later, you can pretend you saw what you meant to.

*For those who think he's never been funny, his appearance on Spaceghost Coast to Coast was brilliant. Anything else is a tossup.
