Trailer Bulletin: Employee of the Month

by | July 14, 2006 | Comments

That crazy Dane Cook. The kids just love the guy. And now he looks to be turning into a bona-fide movie star and whatnot. Having seen a bunch of the guy’s stand-up, my reaction to that is "Cool. Cook’s a seriously funny dude." His first starring vehicle, "Employee of the Month," hits theaters soon, and you can see the new trailer right here.

"For customers of Super Club, the largest high-volume, bulk-discount retailer in the country, membership has its privileges. For workers at the cavernous store, the most coveted honor is the "Employee of the Month" award, and having one’s photo immortalized on the wall of fame in the staff lounge. Enter Zack Bradley and Vince Downey, two ultra competitive Super Club workers whose ten years of employment have resulted in drastically different career paths. While Vince–with the aid of his trusty sidekick Jorge–has advanced to become head cashier and winner of 17 consecutive "E of M" awards, Zack is the ultimate slacker whose scruffy appearance and laid back attitude has made him popular with his colleagues, but kept him stuck in the lowly ranks of the store’s box boys.

The duo’s longtime rivalry comes to a bitter head when Amy–a beautiful new cashier with a reputation of only dating "Employee of the Month" winners–transfers to the store, immediately becoming the object of both Zack and Vince’s affection and often comical gamesmanship. While Vince instantly impresses Amy with his crowd pleasing, flamboyant style behind his checkstand register, Zack’s feeble attempts to charm his beautiful new co-worker quickly backfire against him. With the race to win Amy’s affections slipping away, Zack determines his only chance rests in winning the store’s next "Employee of the Month" award."

(Sheesh. That plot synopsis is probably longer than the actual screenplay.)

Joining Mr. Cook in his leading man debut are Dax Shepard, Andy Dick, Efren Ramirez, Harland Williams, and the very curvy Jessica Simpson. "Employee of the Month," which I’m predicting will be a big sleeper hit with the teens, opens on September 15th.
