Now, had Cook and Shepard switched roles, the movie might be one worth owning on DVD. As is, it does have some good laughs and ought to be especially relatable to those who actually do pull pranks and tell dirty jokes to pass the time at minimum-effort, minimum-wage jobs. But every time you think it might be going into twisted territory, it pulls back and does the conventional thing. Was a climactic employee softball game really necessary?

Napoleon Dynamite's Efren Ramirez shows us what Pedro would be like if he were sidekick to a villain instead of a hero, and Harland Williams remains criminally underused, in this or any movie he's in. As for Cook and Simpson, give us Ryan Reynolds and Anna Faris any day.
