The Movie takes place in a fictional membership warehouse club called “Super Club.” Zack Bradley (Dane Cook) is a box-boy who has been barely getting by for ten years. He spends his breaks in a clubhouse with his friends Lon (Andy Dick), Iqbal (Brian George), and Russel (Harland Williams). Meanwhile, Vince Downey (Dax Sheppard), head cashier, has gotten his seventeenth employee of the month award in a row. One day, a new, attractive cashier name Amy Renfro (Jessica Simpson) joins the super club staff. She and Zack hit it off, but Vince comes and impresses her. Zach finds out from Amy’s personal file that she only likes to date the employee of the month. Zack fails to impress Amy and sees her drifting to Vince. He decides that to win Amy’s heart, he must first win employee of the month.
Zack fails to leave a mark for for eleven days in a row. When all hope seems lost, Iqbal tells him just to take pride in his work. Zack takes this to heart by helping an elderly woman. She gives a compliment about him, and Zack gets his first gold star (markers for who was the best on each day). He goes on a date with Amy that night, which happens completely in the Super Club, where they watch a movie, ride go-karts, and play mini-golf.
The next day, it is announced that the cashier from number three has passed away, and that Corporate is coming for an audit. Zack decides to take the spot at number three. As Zack continues to accumulate gold stars, Vince decides to step in. He and his devoted box-boy, Jorge (Efren Ramirez), decided to sabotage Zack. They sneak into his house while he is on a date with Amy, and change all of his clock so that he will be late for work. Iqbal stamps Zack’s card telling him that one of his children’s soccer championship game is later that week.
Zack then decides to sabotage Vince. He takes Vince’s prized ‘81 Honda Civic and puts it on the rack and in the system as twenty dollars. An elderly man buys the car and Vince is furious. He is informed that if the man does not get the car, he will lodge a complaint, making Vince ineligible for employee of the month. He sells the car to the man, making Jorge upset, causing him to leave Vince.
Later that week, there is a softball game between Super Club and Maxi Mart. Zack takes the place of the deceased cashier. As he is leaving, Iqbal reminds him of the championship game. Zack stays at the store, taking Iqbal’s place in electronics. Zack waits until late in the game and leaves. Zack is almost solely responsible for Super Club winning the game with his fielding and batting skills. In the last inning, Zack gives the team a pep-talk to help them win the game. Zack gets the star for that day, tying him with Vince for employee of the month. While Zack is at the game, there is a rush for power strips, and Iqbal gets fired for not being there. Iqbal, Lon, and Russel leave Zack. It is announced that there will be a “check-stand ring off” (competition to see who the best cashier is) to decide who the winner of employee of the month is. Their boss takes the cashiers to a restaurant as celebration for winning. Zack’s old friends are there and confront him about how he is being a jerk just to get with Amy. Amy overhears them and gets mad at Zack.
The next day is the competition for employee of the month. He states that he quits and goes to apologize to Iqbal. He says that he takes full blame for the incident and got Iqbal’s job back. Iqbal states that he does not want his job back, as his wife got a promotion, making him a “stay-at-home daddy”. They then band together and get Zack’s job back. Zack tell his friends he wants to win the award to take pride in his work. Russel decides to be Zack’s box-boy for the competition. It is a close competition, but Vince wins in the end. At the award ceremony, Vince is awarded employee of the month. It is found out that Vince has been cutting corners to get his check-stand speed up by not scanning some items. He is stripped of his award and arrested for theft. Zack then wins employee of the month, and Amy’s heart.
This was overall not a bad movie. There were some funny parts that made me laugh out loud. But this movie does not age well. It is only good for the first few times or every once in a while. I don’t regret buying it though, as it has given me entertainment for a while.
