The OTHER employee of the month

Did anyone catch this on cable last week? We initially thought it might have been the one that sucked, but it had Steve Zahn, Matt Dillon, Christina Applegate, a lot of violence, plot twists, dark gross yet hilarious humor from steve zahn, I highly recommend it. I'm not sure what year it came out, it was awesome, one minute you were grossed out the next you were rotfl, also dave foley was great in it as a crossdressing dentist who had lost his license.

On another note: Read I Am Legend and ignore the extreme miscasting of Will Smith,skip the movie.

I'm pretty sure it's an 04' release. It's a fantastic film that really caught me by surprise one late night on Showtime I believe.

As for I am Legend I agree with you that it is a fantastic film. I do feel a bit wary about Smith but he has put together some solid performances in his time. Miscasting aside the character is also written as a Dr from what i've seen and the majority of the plot takes place in NY. So i'm assuming they've taken some liberties with the plot. You have to remember that the majority of the great book focused on the personal psychological drama that was presented for Robert, that just doesn't translate too well to cinema.

That's fair but I have a decent amount of hope that they will stick to the basic premise of the book with a bit more exploration to set the scene.

I like almost all Will Smith movies, so I will probably like this one also. I heard it was suppose to be a LOT like some older movie, I think it was called The Omega Man or something like that. As far as the Employee of the Month movie, I haven't seen it, I might have to check it out.

I like Will Smith, but I like version Charlton Heston made in the 70's.

he's always seemed likable to me ever since he was the dork in line in Fast Times at Ridgemont High

I will always give a thumbsup to a Coppola who doesn't use that name.
