Chauffeur Willard Fillmore (Norm MacDonald) is over-abused and under-appreciated by his boss from hell, Miss Crock (Elaine Stritch). Desperate for a payback, he enlists the help of his hotheaded best friend Rusty (Dave Chappelle), and they decide to dognap Miss Crock's precious pooch and hold it for ransom. But when the dog escapes, and Miss Crock thinks Willard's the one being held for a price, they must get help from the creepy and crazy mortician Grover Cleaver (Danny DeVito) to cash in on the payoff. Now, the three have triple the trouble and triple the fun as they try to get even without getting Screwed!
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 FetzerSee all Product description

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+.
Anyway, there are funny scenes in this movie. There was a scene where willard was trying to clean windows but he fell off the ladder and then the ladder falls on him! And there are also times where Rusty keeps hitting people with desklamps because he is scared.
Mcdonald and Chappelle made a good duo in this movie. They will make you laugh because of the stuff they do and say. Although the plot is screwed up, it is still funny and worth buying.
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!
