Employee of the Month
Source: Catholic News Service
Lightweight comedy about a slacker stock clerk (Dane Cook) at a Costco-style superstore where he tries to dethrone a cocky rival co-worker (Dax Shepard) -- who's nabbed "employee of the month" honors for 17 months straight -- in order to win the affections of a pretty new cashier (Jessica Simpson), sparking a madcap competition. Director Greg Coolidge blends slapstick, broad comedy and satire to uneven effect, and while the gamesmanship is intermittently amusing, the general vulgarity undermines the story's sweet center. Much crude and sexual humor, gay innuendo, a racial joke, a use of the f-word, as well as recurring crude language and profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
