That is, until his entire life dissolves into chaos.

Although not a masterpiece, I gave 5 stars for its great dialogue, good acting, well planned storyline that holds up with repeated viewings and the fact that this movie stayed with me. This movie is a dark "in your face" comedy with well defined yet way out there characters. I know other reviewers have provided a synopsis but here's mine: basically it's a story of a man, David Walsh, on the fringe of society who attempts to live the American Dream (good job, nice house, beautiful wife, etc.) and manages to actually live it for a while until a corporate weasel steps in and subsequent decisions made by David seal his fate. For me, this quirky film is one that defines the appeal of the independent genre. No quarter was given on ANY issue and Lions Gate Entertainment studio deserves credit for having guts to put this movie out there. No politically correct jokes found here......or situations for that matter. There is so much offensive behavior to be found that it would take up too much space to list it all and yet that is kind of one of the points of this movie. You almost feel guilty for laughing out loud at certain spots. I can certainly see why this film did not do well at the box office, no on would want to admit in public that certain dialogues or scenes while being offensive were also funny. Yes, there are gay, anti-woman and other the comments made but nothing is relayed with malice, just realism with a twist of dark comedy. Yet to say that this movie is just a dark comedy is to miss the underlying seriousness of the script, which is intelligent by the way. Social commentary is brilliantly interwoven in some very disturbing ways.Read more ›

David Welsh(Matt Dillon) has a tough day. He gets fired from his job, loses his financee and even has his car stolen by a call girl. But, he has a plan. One that will include telling off his former boss, revenging the severe burns he received as a child and land the real girl of his dreams. What could go wrong???

This is "EMployee of the Month"

The film is pretty good because of all the twists involved in the plot. My biggest problem with the film was that these "twists" don't actually take place until the last 10 minutes of the film. The rest is kinda slow moving and struggles to keep the viewers attention. So, in an effort to make the film feel fast moving, the writers added constant techno music to the score, which I found to be extremly annoying.

The acting is pretty good, especially Christina Applegate. I find it amazing to see what a great actress she has become. From her early days as Kelly Bundy on the great "Married with CHildren" to roles such as this and her role in "Anchorman"; she really is fun to watch. Steven Zahn("Riding in Cars with Boys") also gives a good performance.

Overall, I would say this film is worth the watch, not the buy.

ENJOY!

This was a great little straight to video film. Great acting, great story. Go out and rent this film today. I don't understand all these people who gave it one star were thinking but hey these are the same people who gave Scarface one star and called it pure garbage and are the same people who gave Kill Bill one star but gave Gangs of New York 5 stars. Some people got their heads up their butts. So go out and rent it and I will bet you will find yourself loving this film.

I'm a Christine Applegate, Matt Dillion fan. Some genius movie making, here. This film caught me off guard. I started out not liking it, especially Steve Zahn's character. But he has a way of becoming interesting which arouses curiosity. It's a bad situation only getting worse and it's relevant to everyone whose ever worked to get a raise or promotion. Then the wind blew it open and WOW. I'm not going to spoil it for someone else. See the movie. You'll have good time piecing it together. At different times the cast seemed suspect. But in one light to this, it made the end part of 'Employee of the Month', much better, which I believe was the goal of the director & producers. Seen this movie 5 times. It was fun. Could watch it a few more. I bought it because I want it. It's entertaining! I don't know for the life of me why this movie didn't do better at the box office. I'd put it up there with Office Space.

I love dark twisted comedies. the script was excellent with excellent performances. you really have to have a sick sense of humor to enjoy this movie. its amusing to see the characters in the movie, do things in a non-chalant matter of fact way(like its normal!!). there are many hidden agendas!(can you trust anyone? everyone?) basically, see the movie with an open mind(people who are warped-excluded). just sit back and enjoy what the characters do and ask yourself(what would I have done). *note:----*when the credits start to roll, make sure you watch everything(do not turn the movie off). much to enjoy.

Great movie! It was fast pace no long set up or back stories that are drawn out. As the movie goes on it just keeps taking turns and throwing you off and picking up the pace. At the end of the movie you have no clue who knows what or who really knows who. In the last 8 minutes of the movie it really takes off and you figure out whats really going on. I'd recommend this movie just for the ending alone.
