One for the rental, rather than to buy
from The Tree Fort, Birmingham
, 08 Aug 2004
This little known comedy, really belongs in the same pile as the likes of "Kung Pow" silly little films, which although watchable aren't really gonna set the world alight.
Following Willard (Norm Macdonald) who is an underpaid and over worked butler of Mrs Crock, the owner of Crock Cakes, who decides to get what he deserves by kidnapping her beloved dog, with the help of his pal and Chicken chef Rusty (David Chappelle) This of course goes horribly wrong and due to some bizzare coincidence, makes Mrs Crock actually think, that Willard has been kidnapped.
Now the scam is on as Willard and Rusty try to con Mrs Crock out of a Million dollars, with the help of Mortary worker Grover (Danny Devito), who has a strange hobby of collecting things found in corpses!
Screwed does have many funny moments, some incredibly funny slapstick in a Peter Jackson (pre sell out) style humour, which makes this film worth the rental alone.
Devito Steals this film though as Grover and will probably be what keeps you hooked, rather than the antic's of Rusty and Willard which in places kinda drag.
