Okay, so the story is complete hokum and some of the jokes fall flat on their face, but if you let it, Men at Work can still be one hell of an enjoyable and quirky caper comedy. Emilio Estevez directs and stars alongside his brother Charlie Sheen as a garbageman constantly aspiring for better things. On probation and under the watchful eye of the hilarious Keith David, Estevez and Sheen become embroiled in a madcap murder involving the mayor and some chemical polluters. Throw in an attractive neighbour, a kidnapped pizza delivery guy, rival garbage men, and two ridiculous bicycle cops and you have the basis for some comedy mayhem. The real star of the show however is Keith David as the slightly disturbed Vietnam vet with a short fuse. It’s his interventions that are the most memorable and his penchant for tying up his prisoners in the strangest of positions will have you in stitches. “You need help.”
