Which brings us to
Employee of the Month. Comedian Dane Cook is Zack, a loser working at a giant Super Club warehouse store as a box-boy, with a number of likely cohorts played by the actors who make the rounds in these films, including Andy Dick and Harland Williams, each doing some derivation of some other spaz they've played in some other movie. Dax Shepard is Vince, Zack's arch enemy, with whom Zack will ultimately do Super Club battle for the honor of becoming the "Employee of the Month" -- even the title is not funny -- and getting to bed Jessica Simpson, known as Amy in the movie, but who is still just Jessica Simpson, all teeth and flowing golden hair. This will fulfill a number of youthful male (and lesbian, one imagines) fantasies and that's fine -- but it's not funny.
