Product Description

Mcdonald/Chappelle/Devito ~ Screwed

Amazon.ca

Screwed was another nail in the coffin of former Saturday Night Live wisecracker Norm MacDonald, following his dismal previous film, Dirty Work. However, while Screwed isn't particularly funny (the jokes about dentures, dog poop, and dead bodies are pretty much as old as the hills), the plot exerts a perverse interest; for most of the movie, it's genuinely unpredictable. MacDonald plays Willard, the butler-chauffer, all-purpose flunky of Mrs. Crock, the wealthy, penny-pinching owner of a pastry company. Fed up with her abuse, Willard and his friend Rusty (David Chappelle from 200 Cigarettes) connive to kidnap her dog Muffin. But Muffin escapes and returns home; the ransom note is assumed to be for Willard himself. Rusty and Willard run with the idea, sending in a videotape of himself being held prisoner. When a detective starts getting a little too close, they panic and decide to fake Willard's death... Okay, none of it makes much sense, but in a world of ridiculously formulaic movies that slavishly follow every screenwriting cliché, Screwed seems like a brief oasis of narrative invention. Of course, it still isn't funny. And by the end, it's lost whatever spark of imagination that got it started. Too bad. It's written by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, the screenwriters responsible for Problem Child, but also for Ed Wood and The People vs. Larry Flynt--they should stick to biographies. --Bret Fetzer

Screwed is a very funny movie with a great cast regardless of what critics said about it. Willard Fillmore is a butler badly mistreated by his boss, Miss Virginia Crock, the owner of a huge pastry business. Willard and his friend Rusty decide to get back at her by kidnapping her dog and getting a huge ransom out of it. Then, the kidnapping goes wrong and everyone thinks Willard is the one who was kidnapped. From here on in, Willard and Rusty must figure a way to get out of the mess without screwing themselves over. Sure, some of the humor has been done before, but it is still very funny. There are plenty of laughs throughout. Screwed will keep you interested because from one scene to the next you're never sure what is going to happen next.
Norm Macdonald is very funny as Willard Fillmore, the mistreated butler who decides to get back at Miss Crock. There is just something funny about the pitch of Macdonald's voice when he screams. Dave Chappelle is equally funny as Rusty, Willard's friend and partner in crime. The two of them together are great. Danny DeVito is also good as morgue worker Grover Cleaver, who gets caught up in the whole mess. Screwed also stars Elaine Strich, Sarah Silverman, Daniel Benzali, and Sherman Hemsley. The DVD offers the theatrical trailer, widescreen presentation, and production notes. For a very funny movie with plenty of laughs, check out Screwed!

I did enjoy the movie screwed but even I have to admit that the plot is pretty screwed up. First off all we have a chauffer, Willard Filmore (Norm Mcdonald) who works his butt off for his tyranical boss, a wealthy old woman Miss Crock (Elaine Stritch), and gets very little out of doing this and gets no respect. But When Willard finally goes nuts when all she gives him for christmas is a pie. A PIE???? she is rich, she owns a pie company, and all she gives him is a pie after all he has done for her. He does everything for her. I mean literally, he does EVERYTHING for her. And for going nuts, she decides she is going to fire him. After, Willard goes to his friend, Rusty (Dave Chappelle) and they decide to get back at Miss Crock by kidnapping or should I say dognapping her dog. Things were going okay except the dog was barking. Will puts hand on the dogs mouth but the dog starts biting his hand and getting blood all over the walls. They managed to get the dog off the hand and write a ransom note for $1 million. But things weren't going as well as they seemed. Behind their backs, the dog escapes and returns home seeming like the whole thing never happened. When Miss sees the damage, all she was shocked about at first was that her paining got messed up because of the blood, not worrying about the blood on the wall or the damage. Now that is a screwed up scene. Anyway, when the boys see the morning paper it SAYS THAT WILLARD IS KIDNAPPED! Everbody thought the note was meant for willard. And the whole story gets over town quikly. Now Willard cannot show his face in public. They are totally screwed. At first they trie to use this buy raising the ransom, sending a video of willard being "locked up", causing the public to have Miss Crocks company to go down and forcing her to pay.Read more ›

Norm Macdonald, Danny DeVito, and Dave Cheppele star in one of the stupidest movies of the year. All 3 of these actors are farely succesful, Norm of course with his fame on SNL, and Dave Cheppele just stared in the hilarious Half Baked, and DeVito has a countless number of awesome films. I thought hey, the trailers looked funny, I love all 3 actors, there could only be one problem, it was too good to be true. As Norm plays Willard Filmore a butler who is over abused by his boss Miss Crock (Elaine Stritch), Norm hears he's going to be fired so he seeks revenge by stealing Miss Crock's favorite dog Muffin, and hold the dog for a ransom, he gets help from his best friend Rusty (dave cheppele) who works at a Fried Chicken Restaurant. When things go wrong Muffin escapes and gets back to Miss Crock, and then Miss Crock thinks WILLARD is up for the ransom, they try to fake Willard's death and move to Bali, the body is being supplied by a creepy mortician Grover Clever (DeVito). Everything is really screwed in this movie. That's the summary of what would seem to be a funny movie, but the title says it all.

The plot: Willard(Norm Macdonald) is over worked, over tired working for an old woman-Miss Crock(Elaine Stritch) for fifteen years. Then Willard had a plan to kidnap her dog with his friend, Rusty(Dave Chappelle). But the dog bit Willard hand, his blood fly all over a room, they put the dog in a box. But the back door wasn`t close, so the dog escape. The next morning Miss Crock find blood all over the place, she calls the police, she thinks that William is kidnap and beat-up. Then the two friend discover their plan is change to a better one. But after the plan goes too far, the two friend hired an mortican, who clean dead body for a living named Grover Cleaver(Danny De Vito) to find a dead body than look like Willard but a detective Tom Dewey(Daniel Benzali) think willard kidnapping is too far from believe, once they find Willard but the plan, only goes much more worse than anyone would expected.
Wriiten and Directed by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski are best known for writing Problem Child 1&2, Ed Wood, The people vs. Larry Flynt and Man on the moon. Made in 1998. Also a trivia here: Norm does an funny tribute to Bruce Campbell in Evil Dead 2:Dead by Dawn, the scene where Norm`s hand is bitting by a dog, Norm will do everything to get it off. Evil Dead 2:Bruce`s hand is bitting by his dead girlfriend`s head, then he would do everything to get if off also. Norm`s and Bruce`s are very funny indeed. Grade:B+.
