I laughed once or twice during this flat and fatuous farce, mainly because director and co-writer Greg Coolidge lifted a lot of it from Office Space. If you're going to steal jokes, why not steal good ones? I also forced a grin when Jessica Simpson, cast as a clerk at one of those stores where you buy things in bulk (think Costco), pulled back her hair extensions to reveal two deformed ears that made her look like a Vulcan bride for Mr. Spock. That's it for the good stuff. If anything, Simpson's acting has gotten worse since the craptacular Dukes of Hazzard. She seems dazed and confused through this whole slogging mess of a movie. Simpson plays Amy, the new hottie at the store. Better yet, she'll sleep with any guy who wins "Employee of the Month." Standup comic Dane Cook plays Zack, the box boy who's determined the take the prize from seventeen-time winner Vince (Dax Shepard). I'd tell you more, but that would just prolong the torture. There are people who think Cook is funny, but you won't find any evidence of that here.
