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

While riding in the Rolls Royce, Markie & Buffy are talking about the Palm Beach city ordinances, you can clearly see the microphone above them. See more »
[Buffy and Kool are in a squad car being driven to a unknown destination by the huge cop and the racist Sgt. Bledsoe]
Uh... look mister officer, Sergeant Bledsoe, sir. I want to point out an unfair situation here.
[turns towards them]
Shut your fat ugly face!
[both Buffy and Kool look at each other with dread]
Kool, we gotta find a way to get away... now. These guys are gonna kick our asses, man!
Yeah, while we're gonna be hurt, Albert's gonna be dead!

The Fat Boys (Mark Morales, Darren Robinson and Damon Wimbley) aren't exactly the Marx Brothers. Heck, they're not even the Ritz Brothers. But their first (and last) big screen adventure (as stars, at least) still manages to hold enough appeal to be watchable.
The former rap stars play bumbling orderlies hired on the hope their incompetence will speed up the passing of the wealthy Albert Dennison (the amiable Ralph Bellamy). Albert's nephew, you see, has some nasty debts to pay off. But the plan backfires when the boys and their antics breath new life into the old man. Never laugh-out-loud funny, and sometimes lame, "Disorderlies" is saved by its cheesy, uniquely '80s appeal. If you perked up at the phrase "cheesy, uniquely '80s appeal", then this one's for you.
