"Fresh, inventive! A pleasant knockabout comedy!"
-Los Angeles Times
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. With hilarious supporting performances and an all-star soundtrack, Men At Work is an "engaging... comically crackpot" (The New York Times) adventure that "has very few moments when it's not generating laughs" (Los Angeles Times)!
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 the 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 hauled off to a landfill for good!
A fun little comedy.
