Jess, Dax and Dane: A Pleasant Surprise!

Jessica Simpson and Dane Cook were on TRL this week promoting Employee Of The Month, which opens tomorrow! Jessica (say something nice) stood out in her green jacket and thigh-high boots and as usual she made her famous funny faces. Dane is my new crush, he is just so darn cute.

I was lucky enough to catch an advanced screening of Employee Of The Month last night and I must say I was pleasantly surprised! The movie centers around the employees of a Costco-like warehouse store in middle America. Dax Shepard plays Vince Downey, the obnoxious Head Cashier who also happens to be the reigning Employee of the Month for seventeen straight months! Dane Cook plays Zack Bradley, a measly box boy who could not be happier about his low-profile status. That is until beautiful new cashier Amy, played by you guessed it, Jessica Simpson, transfers from store 262. The rumor is that Amy has a history of falling hard for whomever is named Employee of the Month. Energized by his quest to win Amy's heart, Zack decides to step it up and compete against Vince for the coveted title.

Like I said, I was pleasantly surprised. The movie was smarter and funnier than I expected and the interaction between Dax and Dane was brilliant. Jessica did not actually have any real lines until about half way through the movie and the story was really more about the competition between Zack and Vince and less about Amy. A fun, light-hearted movie that will not disappoint! Besides, if The Departed is sold out then this is a funny alternative if you have your heart set on going to the movies this weekend.

Lots and lots more pics of Dane and Jess on TRL, so

I guess in the trailer, they wanted to make a stab at actual humor. In the commercials, they know the word of mouth has not been good and have to rely on boob jokes. :P

lol jennav, i don't know why i even offered that up. as if it's so deep that i don't want the "meaningful dialogue" to be misinterpreted.

Oh, then i was confused. In the commerical, Andy Dick makes some kind of motion like he is talking about her nips and then the next thing you see is her going..."They're not bionic"

in the trailer i saw he's referring to her ears and says "i guess i should whisper" and she says "they're not bionic".

One star....wayyyy harsh!!!! Not one bit surprised at all. The movie looks lame, Jessica Simpson is a TERRIBLE actor and Dane Cook is not only unfunny, but not hot. I hate the commercial when Andy Dick is talking about her rack and she goes "They're not bionic".....DURRRR!!! She sounds like such a moron. This movie will tank...The Departed comes out tomorrow as well and will wipe the floor with it.

Those two had an unscripted thing on AOL about this movie, and Jessica was sooooooooo weird. She had to read Kennebunkport. I knew that would throw her for a loop! haha She said, ohhhhhh, where's THAT???? Too funny. If anyone has AOL, you can watch it and know she shouldn't be doing ANYTHING unscripted =)

I love Dane Cook. Hes so funny. Vicious Circle on HBO had me in tears, gasping for breath. Lol. I feel kinda bad for Jessica. Shes fallin apart at the seams. And PimpDaddy Simpson has her strung up... Dance puppet dance. Well, as for the movie.. Gonna wait til it comes on DVD in a few weeks. lol.

Dane is such a mediocre comedian. He's shamed by so many other comedians that came before him, after him, currently compete with him...I don't see what people think is so funny. He's so inconsistent. He may have a funny riff, but then follows it up with 10 things that are completely stupid. Not a fan.

Jess looks absolutely horrible! She can't dress to save her life..and she's not a "movie star" in any way. The producers are jus using her to promote the shud really be the other guy who's the "Employee of the Month" who shud be promoting with Dane..but then again no one knows who he is. Anyway, she is a waste of space..and I wish she would get back together with Nick! She was soo much better with him!

Dane Cook sucks! All he does is rip off Brian Regan. He's a Brian Regan wannabe.

I actually wouldn't mind seeing this movie. For everybody EXCEPT her. Sounds to me like it's pretty much like her role in Dukes Of Hazzard. She barely had any lines in it either. She was just there to flaunt her T & A. (And imagine that, she's in the news again today.) :-P
