The grotesque practical jokes perpetrated against two interfering bumblers are genuinely funny, while Estevez and Sheen remain cutely goofy even when indulging themselves in this adolescent idiocy.
The movie's desire to please is tireless, also engaging. Mr. Estevez's screenplay is not entirely coherent, but it has a number of comically crackpot lines.
Like the jokes, the brothers' rapport seems recycled from childhood. Sheen and Estevez are hardly working.
Estevez tries hard (as usual, Sheen just shows up), but the laughs simply aren't there.
Men at Work is patient zero for the plague of Charlie Sheen movies that infected the 1990s.
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.
Lame trash men comedy, early Estevez and Sheen.
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,
Banal brotherly project concocted up by real life siblings Sheen and Estevez. An uneven and unfunny ruse under the dour direction of Estevez
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.
In fairness to the two actors, who have appeared in much better films, they don't have much to work with here.
If you always wanted to see brothers Charlie Sheen and Emilio Estevez together in a film, watch this movie. It's a story you may have seen before, but it's still fun and exciting and it's got the two of them, so why not. I liked it.
A true guilty pleasure, Men at Work sees Carl (Charlie Sheen) and James (Emilio Estevez) as two no hope surfers/garbage men who pipe dream about opening their own surf shop. Carl has a slightly disturbed habit of spying on his neighbors with binoculars and "seriously aggravating situations without changing the course of history" by occasionally shooting them with a pellet gun.
After an evening of beer and Trivial Pursuit, Carl and James witness City Councilman Jack Berger (Darrell Larson) seemingly assaulting his campaign manager Susan Wilkins (Leslie Hope) in her apartment across the street. As she runs out Carl shoots Berger with the pellet gun. He and James miss two men then strangle Berger and leave with his body. The following day they happen across Berger's discarded corpse on their garbage route, and, fearing they may be implicated in the murder, hide the body. Madcap antics ensure as they try to figure out who killed Berger and why.
There's lots to like in this silly comedy, from the inept hit men whose car bears the licence plates: HIT MEN, to the recurring joke of the misplaced tape (work it, work it), and the great chemistry between the two leads. But the highlight is Keith David as Louis, Carl and James' boss' brother in law who rides along with them in the garbage truck as an observer (as they are known troublemakers and on probation at work) and becomes mixed up in the movie's ensuing chaos. David is perfect as the unhinged Vietnam veteran, and from the sight gag of him doodling a helicopter firing missiles at innocent families on a boardwalk, to the infamous "another man's fries" line, to the hilarious kidnapping of the pizza boy "he was provokin me!" the character is a constant source of laughs.
Leave your brain at the door and enjoy.
Men at Work is one of my Favourite Movies. It has many LOLs moments.
An amusing little flick that is only good really cos of the Sheen brothers. They work well of each other and do produce some funny moments. Its very cheesey and predictable, the plot is sooo daft, almost like a cartoon lol but there aren't many flicks out there about trashmen right? the beginning is the better half of the movie, the Sheen boys fighting against the other rival pair of trashmen is the funniest.
