The garbage man motif is pretty fitting.

It's just not much of a motion picture, dropping the potential of a unique workplace perspective to deliver static monkey business, streaked with leftover clown make-up from Weekend at Bernie's.

Banal brotherly project concocted up by real life siblings Sheen and Estevez. An uneven and unfunny ruse under the dour direction of Estevez

In fairness to the two actors, who have appeared in much better films, they don't have much to work with here.

Like the jokes, the brothers' rapport seems recycled from childhood. Sheen and Estevez are hardly working.

Men at Work stinks up the joint worse than the garbage that the title characters haul.

The Sheen brothers display how useless they are in this, the dumbest of dumb comedies, proof that they'll never be confused with the Marx Brothers.

Despite its ample flaws, Men at Work is never boring and often is a lot of fun; however, it would have benefitted from the pruning of a few of its misfired visual gags,

At times fun, at others too smart for it's own good. It's big flaw: the long, drawn-out ending.
