Editorial Reviews

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

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Screwed is great! May 6, 2001
By VernL4
Format:VHS Tape
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very funny movie with great cast February 13, 2004
Format:DVD
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny as hell movie February 20, 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
"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.

3.0 out of 5 stars "Sweet Jesus! We kidnapped a turd!" November 18, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The first time I saw Screwed (2000), I wasn't very appreciative of the film, but after viewing it for a second time, I think it's growing on me, as I liked it a little better, although I doubt if I were to watch it again, I would like it even more, as it's not really a film that merits viewing more than I already have.... The movie was somewhat funny, but I'd hardly recommend it above other comedies, that is, unless you've seen them all and you're just looking to rent for the sake of renting something. The film, written and directed by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, better known for their biography pictures (Ed Wood, The People vs. Larry Flynt, Man on the Moon), stars a solid cast in SNL veteran Norm Macdonald (Dirty Work), David Chappelle (Half Baked), prominent stage actress Elaine Stritch (Krippendorf's Tribe), and Danny DeVito (L.A.Confidential).

The film features Norm Macdonald as a hapless manservant named Willard Fillmore, who works for a well-to-do, nasty, miserly, old biddy named Mrs. Crock (Stritch), owner of a popular baked goods company. I use the term `manservant' loosely, as Willard is more of a slave, working for peanuts, forced to endure the abusive antics of his employer, until he finally can stand it anymore, and develops a simple revenge plan with his best friend, Rusty P. Hayes (Chappelle), owner of Rusty's Juicy Chicken Hole, to kidnap Mrs. Crock's beloved Pomeranian Muffin, and hold it for ransom. Well, as we all know, even the simplest of plans often get tripped up with complications, and here is no different.

5.0 out of 5 stars The only thing screwed about this movie... June 5, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
...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.
