You know this movie was an 80's movie because at the end they do a air high five.

Three clumsy orderlies, played by The Fat Boys, are hired by an indebted, scheming nephew of a billionaire whose restrained to a bed and wheelchair with failing health. Disorderlies plays like a light Miami Vice with a barrage of slaps like the Three Stooges. Sound effects, while The Fat Boys are fumbling around, are quite prevalent throughout the film. In all honesty, the film is carried along by the slaps these three guys make on eachother. Where it might seem annoying to some, it actually comes off as hilarious and fits the tone of the film perfectly. You actually come to expect someone to take a hit randomly. However, the white-man slang from Ralph Bellamy should have been left out. I don't know why some directors think it's funny to include those scenes in their films. It just never works out the way they expect it to.
