It's up to a pair of trash-hauling heroes to clean up the city in this action-comedy starring real-life brothers Charlie Sheen and Emilio Estevez. Garbage men James (Estevez) and Carl (Sheen) dream of opening a surf shop, but often land in hot water due to their practical jokes. When they discover the body of a murdered politician on their route, they attempt to sniff out the killer themselves a bad idea that rapidly ensnares them in a toxic waste scandal. Soon, they're thrown headlong into a manic escapade involving a deranged veteran, an attractive campaign manager, a kidnapped pizza deliveryman and a greedy polluter who wants them hauledoff to a landfill for good!

This movie is terrific until the end where it seems like Emilio ran out of time or money because it just seems to end without resolution to some of the story lines. This movie is admittedly silly but that doesn't matter because it makes me laugh which is about the only requirement I have anymore for movies. The script was funny and the characters were as well. So what if the story line itself was like cardboard. Aside from Charlie and Emilio, I thought the hitmen as well as the garbage men nemeses and even the bicycle cops nemeses were all funny. I always enjoy Keith David who is a flawless character actor and John Getz is always amazing whether he is playing a good guy or bad guy.
This movie stands the test of time meaning it is still funny to me after all these years unlike some other movies that I thought I would love forever such as "The Breakfast Club" which now is a bit boring when I go back and try to watch it. I always thought "Men At Work" was great until the end when it turned into a kind of screwball farce. And what happened to James and Carl after they nailed the bad guy? Did they ever get enough money to fund their dream surf shop? Oh well...
As far as this dvd, I was rather distraught over the price- $25!!! I had bought this movie a long time ago and don't remember how much I paid but it could not have been that much. Then I made the mistake of lending it to some jerk who lost it leaving me to have to replace it here now. There are also zero special features contained on it. It looks like Emilio could at least have provided us his fans with something! The soundtrack is good too. So if you are reading this then my guess is you are just a fan of the movie already. I'm not sure what people are supposed to get out of these reviews except maybe whether or not the dvd is worth buying. If you liked the movie and can watch your favorite ones over and over then buy this one. However, I think only true fans of the movie should pay that much for it.
