Trivia

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 »

Goofs

When Willard and Rusty are being shot at by Grover in the police car, he shoots bullet holes in the hood, then the holes go away and he shoots new ones in again in a different shot. See more »

calling it misguided is kind - calling it lame is accurate
25 May 2000 | by See all my reviews

What a disappointment. See, I found Dirty Work to be mildly amusing, and I like Norm Macdonald's work in general. Furthermore, I saw Dave Chappelle's stand-up act live a few months ago, and it was pretty funny. Thus, I really did expect to like Screwed, even though the critics didn't.

But, alas, those critics were right on target with this one. Almost every joke in the movie fails (the only particularly successful ones are near the end, too). Furthermore, one scene is unnecessarily violent for a movie of this type, making it all but impossible to laugh. The best moments usually belong to DeVito, by the way, but his part is pretty small (he's in like 5 or 6 scenes).

Incidentally, I'm really beginning to feel sorry for Chappelle, who just can't seem to do a good movie (I hated Half-Baked and Blue Streak, too). He's too funny to have this bad of a movie career. 3/10
