If you are looking for some really dumb movie about losers that you know how is going to end, look no further. Dynamic duo that consists of Estevez brothers (Charlie and Emilio) is constantly goofing around and making jokes. The humor is crude and a bit slapstick, but is still entertaining. They play two losers garbageman who accidentally get involved into a murder.  Now they have to figure out how to get out of it and don`t get blamed for something that they did not do. When all your ambitions are driven by sex, alcohol and laziness you are about to be very similar to the most of the men.

As I previously said this is one of the classic nineties duet comedies intended to be light and funny, but that has over the years achieved a cult status among the viewers. Granted, the pacing is a bit off and the movie trails off in the last thirty minutes, but by that time you are already in love with our dynamic duo. Showing true power of friendship, where you just need one more person to be happy and to do something, Man at Work is a movie for everybody. It also echoes all the important issues from the eighties where hazards of toxic waste spawned a number of superheroes and law suits. The beauty of this movie is the intention behind the effort, and that intention was honest and true so whatever the end result is, it’s something that you feel connected to. Enjoy.
