Despite having real comics in the cast, this tedious and painfully unfunny movie desperately needs a screenplay.

Screwed is latenight cable TV filler disguised as a feature film.

If this is how they want to squander a hard-earned opportunity, they should keep their day jobs.

Danny DeVito is the only cast member who succeeds in making something out of the movie's nothing of a screenplay.

A shrill, stupid, brickbat-blatant piece of hackwork that practically sweats to be 'commercial.'

much better than i thought

I can't imagine any other filmmaker doing much worse with the already-poor material than they have.

January 1, 2000 Full Review Source:

Screwed is a low-brow dognapping caper comedy that had all the early warning signs of a real stinker.

January 1, 2000 Full Review Source: SPLICEDWire

After watching this thankfully brief comedic abomination, one can't help thinking it was conceived during a 14-martini lunch.

January 1, 2000

Avoid this like the plague.

Greenwich Village Gazette

Doesn't even have the decency to be horrifyingly funny.

Once again, 'gross' does not automatically equal 'funny'.

January 1, 2000 Full Review Source:

Pitiful excuse for a film.

January 1, 2000 Full Review Source:

The film's comedy falls like a thud in the path of forward progression, impeding laughter, believability, and sustained interest.

Sweet and loopy.

There are also too many examples of being weird just for the sake of being weird.

January 1, 2000 Full Review Source:

The comedy throughout Screwed is as luscious as a cake baked in honor of Virginia's Crock's thirtieth birthday.

January 1, 2000 Full Review Source: Compuserve

What sort of filmmakers could possibly think it a good idea to title their picture Screwed?

January 1, 2000 Full Review Source: One Guy's Opinion

Poorly conceived and executed.

Screwed is an insane comedy -- not a great one, but a good one, and certainly better than most junk routinely screened and screened again by the studios.
