Product Description

Chauffeur Willard Fillmore (Norm MacDonald) is over-abused and under-appreciated by his boss from hell, Miss Crock (Elaine Stritch). Desperate for a payback, he enlists the help of his hotheaded best friend Rusty (Dave Chappelle), and they decide to dognap Miss Crock's precious pooch and hold it for ransom. But when the dog escapes, and Miss Crock thinks Willard's the one being held for a price, they must get help from the creepy and crazy mortician Grover Cleaver (Danny DeVito) to cash in on the payoff. Now, the three have triple the trouble and triple the fun as they try to get even without getting Screwed!

Amazon.com

Screwed was another nail in the coffin of former Saturday Night Live wisecracker Norm MacDonald, following his dismal previous film, Dirty Work. However, while Screwed isn't particularly funny (the jokes about dentures, dog poop, and dead bodies are pretty much as old as the hills), the plot exerts a perverse interest; for most of the movie, it's genuinely unpredictable. MacDonald plays Willard, the butler-chauffer, all-purpose flunky of Mrs. Crock, the wealthy, penny-pinching owner of a pastry company. Fed up with her abuse, Willard and his friend Rusty (David Chappelle from Blue Streak and 200 Cigarettes) connive to kidnap her dog Muffin. But Muffin escapes and returns home; the ransom note is assumed to be for Willard himself. Rusty and Willard run with the idea, sending in a videotape of himself being held prisoner. When a detective starts getting a little too close, they panic and decide to fake Willard's death... Okay, none of it makes much sense, but in a world of ridiculously formulaic movies that slavishly follow every screenwriting cliché, Screwed seems like a brief oasis of narrative invention. Of course, it still isn't funny. And by the end, it's lost whatever spark of imagination that got it started. Too bad. It's written by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, the screenwriters responsible for Problem Child, but also for Ed Wood and The People vs. Larry Flynt--they should stick to biographies. --Bret Fetzer

    Screwed is a very funny movie with a great cast regardless of what critics said about it. Willard Fillmore is a butler badly mistreated by his boss, Miss Virginia Crock, the owner of a huge pastry business. Willard and his friend Rusty decide to get back at her by kidnapping her dog and getting a huge ransom out of it. Then, the kidnapping goes wrong and everyone thinks Willard is the one who was kidnapped. From here on in, Willard and Rusty must figure a way to get out of the mess without screwing themselves over. Sure, some of the humor has been done before, but it is still very funny. There are plenty of laughs throughout. Screwed will keep you interested because from one scene to the next you're never sure what is going to happen next.
    Norm Macdonald is very funny as Willard Fillmore, the mistreated butler who decides to get back at Miss Crock. There is just something funny about the pitch of Macdonald's voice when he screams. Dave Chappelle is equally funny as Rusty, Willard's friend and partner in crime. The two of them together are great. Danny DeVito is also good as morgue worker Grover Cleaver, who gets caught up in the whole mess. Screwed also stars Elaine Strich, Sarah Silverman, Daniel Benzali, and Sherman Hemsley. The DVD offers the theatrical trailer, widescreen presentation, and production notes. For a very funny movie with plenty of laughs, check out Screwed!

    Who cares what the "editors" and "critics" said about this movie, I love it. Two guys just trying to make one's life better get in over their heads when things don't go their way. Things go from bad to worse, and in the end you will wonder how it all worked out. This movie will make you laugh, and think.

    "I was scared!" (desklamps) This is definately one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. It has so many jokes that it seems like it would just be one of those mindless comedies. but there is so much plot involved and twists to it that greatly enhances the movie. but the plot of set in such as way that it's very easy to keep up with. Norm McDonald is extremely funny. I don't know what all those other people are complaining about. I would definately recommend this movie to anyone.

    I found this movie to be quite humorous, but I was not rolling on the floor laughing. This movie is a classic example of what can happen when even the best laid plans go wrong (despite how crazy these plans are to the rational thinking person!) and the consequences that one must face afterwards. The reason I watch movies is to escape reality for a little while...movies often take the normal & turn it into a fabricated, distorted, even warped version of reality and I believe that's what makes movies fun. This movie will be no fun if the viewer nit-picks and criticizes how unrealistic the plot is. The plot of this film does teeter on the verge of crazy & unrealistic, but that is why it is a movie and that is why Hollywood is so successful.

    One of the silliest, dumbest, and lamest movies in recent years, but the cast elevates this film to a funny and somewhat charming pic. Norm McDonald, sorry to say hasn't found the right vehicle to match his comic talents, is a stitch as a overworked underappriciated gopher type for a greedy, nasty 'stitch' of a woman. He comes up with a plan to kidnap her dog, which turns into his own kidnapping which turns into...well it keeps turning and rather cleverly. Yes, this movie is lame at times, and clever at times. All the cast is top notch. Good belly laughs to be had at all.

    ...is that it doesn't get the recognition it deserves. If your a fan of comedies such as Meet the Parents (Yawn!), Scary Movie* (In the name of all that is good and deacent, get it away!), and Big Daddy (Burn the TV and VCR! They've both been befouled!), then this isn't the movie for you. If you are a fan of the comedic styles of the Three Stooges, the late Chris Farley, and, of course, Norm MacDonald, then this is the movie to watch. It started out as a better version of Lost & Found and evolved into it's own movie. Take my advice, the scene where Norm get's muged by those two little kids is well worth watching the movie. I'm still trying to view a copy of Dirty Work, I havn't seen it yet and I want to! This is a good example of how great a Norm MacDonald movie can be.
    *I'm well aware of how bad of an example Scary Movie is, but it's a great example of how unfunny a movie can get if you take this type of humor too far.

    I'm not much of a movie aficionado, so this review won't be technical by any means. That said, I love this movie and it's one of few that I catch myself quoting, still, on a weekly basis ever since I first watched it (ten years ago). This movie is filled with priceless comedic scenes, particularly if you enjoy the comedic acting of Norm MacDonald, Dave Chappelle, and/or Danny DeVito. Their timing is gold. Willard Fillmore (Norm MacDonald) is a poor butler, who does his job to the best of his abilities and is a good, honest worker. It's a thankless job and he can never seem to live up to his father, who previously was the house butler until he passed away. The running joke about Willard stuck in this dead-end job and his ratty uniform is one of my favorites. Every actor/actress in this movie has a hilarious role, with enough conflicting personalities to make this movie worth watching at least once. There are a handful of good one-liners that I catch myself repeating to friends; unfortunately, not many people have seemed to watched this movie. For the current price ($7~) it's a steal and I do recommend this movie to all my friends. Screwed reminds me of the silly humor in Half-baked, but with thought-out jokes and a story line. I particularly enjoy that there is no love interest or romance in this comedy, per se. It's about two good friends (Norm and Dave Chappelle) trying to make their lives better, or at least something they feel they deserve. They aren't the smartest of criminals, which adds to the comedy, but they have good intentions and always try to make the best of every situation they get themselves into.
