This is one that's so bad it's good. While Emilio Estevez's directorial inexperience (this was the first time he stepped behind the camera) is clear throughout and the script rambles, that somehow gives it a strange charm (perhaps it also helps that I have a soft spot for films that involve toting a dead guy around for half the picture). I especially like the bits where Estevez and Charlie Sheen find themselves hanging from the back of the toxic waste truck in the path of oncoming traffic, and Louis the ex-militant's fitting if somewhat homophobic revenge against the harrassing cops ("You will swing for this, James, I (kid) you NOT!!!")

Who else has seen it?

Saw it, loved it! Thanks for reminding me of this one, got to check it out again.
Can't really remember, but isn't the soundtrack to this movie quite good..?

This was a great movie. It's definitely one of my favorite movies of the 90s.

I havent seen it in YEARS, but I remember I had a boyfriend around the time it was on cable and he used to always say "Golf clap" and do the little clapping thing. That was from MEN AT WORK (or am I thinking of another movie?)

Wow you brought this one back to me. I saw this in the theater when it first came out. I think I was the only person in the whole place. *chuckles*
But I enjoyed it.

great flick, but not Emilio's directorial debut.

He did one in '86 with then-paramour Demi Moore
called "wisdom"

Just watched Men at Work, the last time i saw it was back in ´91 i think.
It´s still a fun movie with a great cast.
Especially Emilio, Charlie and Keith David are hilarious.

The famous golf clap, Dean "I´m just a pizzaman" Cameron and nice, sunny California locations.

Here´s a cool Men at Work teaser trailer
