Grover Clever is the only one of the three guys who didn't stage either of the kidnappings. However according to the script, police saw him dump the body double for Willard. Putting the blame on him, they put up wanted signs for Grover. Devito can be seen ripping them off telephone polls, which in fact, his character Ralph in Romancing The Stone does the same thing when in the police station in Mexico. See more »

While 'Screwed' is far from the essential comedy, it's definitely worth a rental! Norm Macdonald (The Norm Show) plays Willard, the under-appreciated butler to rich Bakery franchise owner, Miss Crock (Elaine Strich), who finds himself about to lose his job. Willard and his best pal, Rusty (Dave Chappelle) decide to kidnap Miss Crock's dog, but they soon find themselves hilariously over their heads as things go astray.
Danny DeVito also makes a welcome appearance in this film as the weird mortician, Grover- who likes his job a little too much! 'Screwed' is a predictable but fun to watch film with decent performances from the cast. Not a classic as others have suggested, but good for a laugh if you feel like watching something light-hearted! ***1/2 out of *****!
