One of the funniest films of the 90's
on 5 November 2012
Having read a few nagative reviews around the internet about this film, I just had to publish a review of my own.
How can anyone dislike or not find Men at Work funny? It is by far Mr Sheen and Estevez's finest movie. It's fast and pacy, full of slapstick and hilarious one liners, that will surely stay with you forever.
The plot is simple, 2 binmen find the body of a politician, some nasties responsible for killing the politician, realise that they need his body back to find an incriminating tape. Meanwhile the binmen, who think they are responsible for the politicians death, due to a silly prank the night before involving a pellet gun, decide to try and pass off the dead politician as still being alive, until they can decide what to do to cover thier own tracks. Chased by 2 dopey police offciers, the nasties who want the tape back and followed by a nutball ex vietnam vet who hates police, security guards and anything else with an ounce of power, a kidknapped pizza delivery man and a sexy siren, and you have a completely screwball 90 minutes of hilarity.
It has a great soundtrack and is definitely one of the best comedy films of the past 30 years.
There's a great comic performance from 80's oddball goof, Dean Cameron, as the dopey, kidknapped, pizza man and then ultimately the glue that binds the whole thing together is the comic talents of Keith David.
This is his finest performance by far, his turn as the paranoid ex military vet, is simply a laugh a minute and the line about the fries in the diner is priceless. I must have rewound it a dozen times and still found it funny.
The film is quite similar in some ways to "Weekend at Bernies" so if you liked that film, chances are, you'll love this one as well.
See this film for yourself and make up your own minds, but if there isn't something in here that makes you laugh, you're a very scary individual indeed.
