MEN AT WORK is a comedy that doesn't try to be over the top, but it is funny on the grounds of the engaging chemistry of the two stars Emilio Estevez (also the director) and Charlie Sheen. They are two garbage men, who find a dead body during one of their pick-ups. They realize it is the guy they had shot with a pellet rifle whom they observed abusing his girfriend (Leslie Hope) who lives in the apartment across the street form their own apartment. Knowing that their pellet gun could not be the cause of the dead man's demise, they suspect the girl and do their own investigation. Then, they get caught in a web of an evil politician (John Getz) and his illegal waste operation. Add a couple of bargain basement hit-men, a distrurbed Vietnam vet (Keith David), a couple of rival garbage men, two trigger happy cops, a pizza deliverer (Dean Cameron), a few rent-a-cops, and dozen or so waste handler's, and you have a film that is fun to watch. A comedy with plausibility and a plot that's not too complicated. Overall,a small and forgotten gem that, with repeated viewing, grows on you.

THIS movie is hilarious, EVERY actor in this movie is funny as hell and even though the story is weird , they all inject me with laughing bug throughout the entire movie. The only thing that is not good about this flick is that it is too short, and the first half is alot better than the second half.
I loved this movie when it came out in theatres back in 1990 or something and if you have not seen it, then buy the dvd. It is one of the greatest movies with Sheen and Estevez.

Finally the movie has come to DVD, this is one of the funniest flicks that starred both of the brothers. Directed by Estavez it will keep you rolling from beginning to end. If you like Adam Sandler or Jim Carey this will actually make you wonder why the brothers did not do more comedy based movies together. This movie may be over 10 years old but it is still fresh and funny. Once you watch this you will definately not want to "throw away a perfectly good white boy".

I haven't seen this movie since it was released twelve years ago, but with the exception of two funny moments, watching it was an execrable experience. Badly written and directed by Estevez, this was the worst movie of 1990. Maybe if I watched it again now, I might like it some more, but I have no desire to. One of the funny moments involves two policemen clad only in their underwear being tied to a merry-go-round, but even that joke gets played out quickly.

I've been waiting for this to be released on DVD. The movie is a hoot!!! Especially love the "Louis" character. "I hate cops- I hate rent-a cops too". "Now if Mr.Sneaky-man would come up here and stand next to Mr.Bone-head". I just received my copy the other day, and was wondering if anyone else has this problem.......there is no chapter index sheet in the box. Just the DVD.

Fans of brothers Emilio Estevez and Charlie Sheen will love seeing them together in this movie. It's not the most perfect movie but it is entertaining, and there are a couple of breathtaking shots of the brothers together that will make you wish Martin Sheen had had many, many more sons. A real treat for the cadre of loyal fans - admittedly mostly sighing females like me - who love this family.

It does lack the sheen to compare with newer comedies, but it's great fun. Basically a guy movie, and probably made for almost nothing, so it's in the writing and nuance of the brothers that comes out hysterical at times. There are some really cheesy parts, but the good ones that make up for it are priceless.

I couldn't watch it as it was not coded for playing on my Oppo meaning for North America. Guess I didn't pay attention to the seller. Bummer. But going to watch it on my computer. I remember enough of it from when it came out to recommend it. Keith David is a hoot.

This is a pretty funny story and has some great actors in it. Although it could be considered a little on the odd side it definitely will get you laughing. There's always something going wrong and the comedy never stops!
