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>

Ralph Bellamy as you've never seen him.
26 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

Ultimately upbeat entertainment stars rap group The Fat Boys - Mark Morales, Darren Robinson, and Damon Wimbley - as a trio of freewheeling, goofy orderlies fired from their jobs. However, they're soon hired for a new gig by scheming Winslow Lowry (Anthony Geary of 'General Hospital' fame), precisely because he hopes that their incompetence will lead to the death of Winslows' uncle, Albert Dennison (Ralph Bellamy). You see, Winslow is a gambling addict who owes a staggering debt to a criminal named Luis Montana (Marco Rodriguez), and he will supposedly inherit his millionaire uncles' estate. Predictably, the corpulent comedians get their act together when it really counts.

Inconsequential, but rather harmless, farcical comedy is directed by Michael Schultz, whose eclectic career includes such features as "Cooley High", "Car Wash", and "The Last Dragon". It's never exactly inspired, but it delivers just enough laughs to keep it watchable. It doesn't have THAT much of a story - after all, it does stop cold for a couple of minutes while the boys shoot an impromptu music video. The soundtrack includes some pretty catchy numbers.

Morales, Robinson, and Wimbley are likable enough and mildly amusing; they do have an infectious amount of energy. Geary is the sort of rotten & conniving - yet also pathetic - antagonist whom the audience will enjoy booing, while Rodriguez is just pure thug. Notable character actor Tony Plana rounds out the trio of baddies as the bumbling valet. Gorgeous Troy Byer is an appealing romantic interest for Morales. Viewers will have fun with the assorted cameo appearances: Helen Reddy, Linda Hopkins, Ray Parker Jr., Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick, etc. But the main reason to watch "Disorderlies" is to see Hollywood legend Ralph Bellamy in such a goofball picture. He does look like he's having some fun. He even gets to utter lines such as "Step off, homeboy!" and "You be illin'."

Dumb, but agreeable, this comedy only goes on for a fairly painless 86 minutes.

Six out of 10.
