It's simply a comedy that doesn't get its fat ass off the ground, so why waste your time?

Slower than molasses .

I found this movie to be very funny and very entertaining, then again if we are talking comedies I usually like stuff that is off the beaten track rather than the more popular mainstream fare.

The acting is weak, the characters are stupid, but for some reason, I enjoyed it.

It's not a very smart comedy, but it's damn entertaining.

He was an unexpected surprise, and I liked him a lot in They Live and Hollywood Homicide.

This movie follows the mundane lives of two trash pick up men trying to make their jobs a bit more interesting by doing stuff to get them selves in trouble and having to be placed under the watchful eye of a Vietnam vet.

This is great fun for everyone, I really enjoyed it, everyone in the cast was great, especially Emilio and Charlie who worked incredibly well together, I highly recommend this one!.

With this comedy, Emilio in the writing department, has brought a rewarding and entertaining pic to the viewer, especially for fans of talented two.

The plot is predictable and nothing special.

There's not much more to say than that -- there's not a deep plot, huge jokes or intense action.

"Men at Work" is a somewhat enjoyable film about two garbagemen (Charlie Sheen and Emilio Estevez) who find the corpse of a high-ranking political official in the trash.

Forgettable at best, don't waste your time on this one .

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.

Retarded yet strangely compelling .

After seeing first rate comedies like "The Big Lebowski" and "Kingpin" this little film is a waste of time.

This is great fun for everyone, I really enjoyed it, everyone in the cast is great especially Emilio and Charlie who worked incredibly well together!.

But this movie is just to slow.

Keith David is the solid part of the movie, his portrayal as the 'ex-military' Viet Nam Veteran, asked to baby sit garbage men carries the movie with his unpredictable cop hating nature.

Men at Work proves that movies dont have to sell, or be critically acclaimed to be thoroughly enjoyable.
