For those of you who prefer the shorter version, I can sum up the movie in 2 words: DON’T BOTHER!
Many of you were probably taught by your parents that if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all. In that case, I’d have to end this review right now.
The entire plot of the movie consists of 2 male employees at the Super Club retailer in a state of one-upmanship, competing for “Employee of the Month” in order to score with the market’s newest cashier. Vince has been the Super Club’s “Employee of the Month” for the past 17 months. During that time, he has advanced through various positions to become head cashier. He is well-favored among the Super Club management and has been named the fastest checker in the southwest. He is in line for a big promotion and has quite an award package awaiting him, pending his 18th consecutive win. Zach, on the other hand, is your typical run-of-the-mill box boy. He has little regard for the store and no self-motivation or desire to advance to higher positions. He is your everyday guy: He goes to work; he goes home. He is well-liked and respected by fellow employees. Enter Amy (Jessica Simpson), the gorgeous new cashier who recently transferred to the local Super Club with a reputation preceding her of one who has a thing for “Employees of the Month”; and watch the games begin.
Morally, the movie is trash. All I can say is dig a hole and bury it DEEP! You’ll find as much filth in the movie, as you will in that hole you bury it in.
The entire movie is filled with profanity, starting immediately and continuing to the very last scene. They should have found and swallowed some of that soap they were selling; maybe it would have cleaned up their language a bit.
Typically, I try to name every occurrence of anything that someone might find objectionable. With this movie, that is not feasible. I have an entire page filled with occurrences. If I had not agreed to write this review, I would have walked out 2 minutes into the movie.
There are numerous instances of profanity (Ephesians 4:29), numerous instances of using our blessed Lord’s name in vain (Exodus 20:7); sexual situations, lust-of-the-eye type occurrences (Matthew 5:28); male and female body parts named and/or gestured to in a vulgar-type or lewd manner (I Corinthians 6:9-10); homosexual type situations strongly implied; and the list could go on.
The MPA Rating for the movie is PG-13 (Parents Strongly Cautioned: Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13 for crude and sexual humor and language).
I find this movie strongly objectionable. I adamantly disagree with the PG-13 rating. Personally, I do not believe that adults or teenagers of any age have any place seeing this kind of filth. This rating, in my opinion, seems to indicate that the film is acceptable for teenagers 13 and older; and nothing could be further from the truth. The movie is inappropriate for all children and for teens of all ages. I will NOT be taking my 16-year-old to see this film. Films of this nature are the exact reason that she is not allowed to see a PG or a PG-13 film until I have read the reviews on it.
My advice for this movie: Definitely a must NOT SEE! Save your money! I’d have had more fun staying home and cleaning house!
