Storyline

Winslow needs money now to pay off gambling debts. If only his rich uncle Albert would die. But his orderlies are very good. Maybe by hiring three of the worst orderlies around, he can speed things up. Fortunately for him, he finds Markie, Buffy, and Kool, who have just been fired from their last job. With them around, he should have the money real soon. Written by Brian W Martz <B.Martz@Genie.com>

Kick it up!
1 March 2008 | by (WILMINGTON, NC) – See all my reviews

Old school is never dead. Especially when you have "The Fat Boys". In the movie "Disorderlies" it's nonstop fun, and plenty of music, rhyme and reason to bolster the fun. Here you have three rotund orderlies from Brooklyn(The Fat Boys) who get canned and was spotted by the nephew of a rich man in Florida. The reason why he hired them so he can get his greedy hands on the fortune. While trying to adapt in the high life, the three orderlies put some "A" in the word attitude to the people there. Albert(Raplh Bellamy) gets to have fun with them. And when he started to act like them, the boys wished he would talk normal to them when he said "quit illin' you two". However, the trio made him feel young and alive. They never left their hometown flair behind, but they can live it up anyway. When the scheming nephew try to do away his uncle, the team of them and Albert foil the scheme. I don't think this was box office material, but it's great for home use. WORD! 3 OUT OF 5 STARS, Homeboy!
