During the check stand ring off, the store lights are clearly turn off except over the cash registers. This is seen when the two are first running in the dark with the tires and while they put other items back on the shelves. However, when the two are finished putting their items away, the shot of them hitting their carts together clearly shows the store lights on. The lights stay on during that sequence until the two run back with the new tires, where the lights are off again except over the registers. See more »

I went in hoping for something that was like Clerks or Office Space, What I received was unfortunately this piece of crap.
Employee of the Month could have been funny or decent, but like most comedies made in the last decade, all of the characters and situations are unbelievably over the top. The characters are all unsympathetic caricatures with no depth and one joke apiece that they tell over and over again. Many of the remaining jokes don't even make any sense. The thing that always makes workplace comedy the funniest is the truth of the situations the characters find themselves in. Instead what was presented is a series of contrived plot points pulled from every teen movie and apparently written by a twelve year old imagining what it would be like to have a job.
There was a chuckle or two and Jessica Simpsons breasts gave a stunning cameo as themselves, otherwise this movie is just another poorly written, directed, and acted cliché fest with no heart, truth or humor.
