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>

Stupid movie, great soundtrack
15 January 2001 | by Gravity06See all my reviews

This is one of those stupid movies with great soundtracks. The plot is weak... the characterisation is all but non-existent (this is what happens when one tries to teach rappers to act).

The soundtrack is about the only thing that makes this film worthwhile; check out the great Bananarama number "I Heard a Rumour". The Fat Boys are fine when they are in their element -- rapping. They contribute two passable numbers -- "Baby, You're a Rich Man" and "Wipeout".

Thank goodness Anne Dudley has moved on to better things ... like winning an Oscar for scoring "The Full Monty".
