Believe me, I tried hard to dislike this film - a real no brainer comedy - but the harder I tried to dislike it, the more I smiled and liked it. The Brothers Estevez / Sheen (Emilio and Charlie) portray garbage men who come across a horrible thing in their daily route - a dead guy in a garbage can  Buggedout - and get themselves involved in political shenanigans.

A really good film - my favorite scene? The bad guy getting a double KLONK on the head courtesy the brothers high fiving him with two dustbin lids.  Buggedout TeddyR TeddyR

Who Can It Be Now is playing on the radio right now.  What kind of cosmic coincidence is that?!?!   BounceGiggle

I enjoyed that movie too.  Favorite quite "The air is just right for drinking."

I always liked the part where Charlie and Emilio shot their neighbor in the ass with the pellet rifle and then they hid beneath the window laughing like hell.

Really good flick to end a stressful day. You can say about Charlie or Emilio what you want, but they are great together in anything. Both might have done some not so good movies on their own (Charlie more than Emilio I think), but they are still a reason for me to watch a movie.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
