    The real disappointment is Danny DeVito as a creepy coroner.
  2. You've got to give Norm Macdonald credit. When he cheats his audience, he warns them first.

    It's just a matter of holding your nose until the whole thing is over.

    Go see this movie and you'll be...yup. You should save your money; Norm Macdonald should save his career, by quitting movies altogether.

    A black comedy that never gets black enough to inspire Farrelly-style decadence.
  6. A confusedly misconceived hybrid of interracial buddy comedy and imitation Marx Brothers farce.
  7. 0
    Miraculously seems a great deal longer (this is not a good thing) as it careens from shit joke to corpse joke to ass joke to dog-turd joke and back.

    It may not be the best work for any of the actors, but you're sure to get a laugh or ten. I thought the movie was very funny. Very funny!

    It's disappointing and at the same time confirms that ( Real ) critics are jaded and why you should not put stock into their opinions. This is one of my all time favorite movies. I have easily watched this movie more than fifteen times. The entire cast is extremely funny. This one of the funniest movies ever made. It's funnier than Something about Mary that received plenty of acclaim. I feel that they rate it based on who is in the headline and not so much about the context. Do yourself a favor and disregard the critics opinions regarding this film and give it a chance. If you get Norm Mcdonald and Dave Chapelle' sense of humor then you will really enjoy this movie. Just writing this review makes me want to go back and watch it again. Expand

    I liked the movie. Anybody that went to see Screwed thinking they were getting an A level hollywood comedy (is there such a thing?) with all the bells and whistles is an idiot. This was a tiny project and Norm's first real forray in to the movie genre. It wasn't a "great" comedy. But it was a pretty good one. MacDonald fans should be satisfied. Anything with Norm gets a 10 from me. Expand

    This was one of the funniest movies I've ever seen I couldn't stop laugh. I mean it has a plot so your not going to laugh through the entire movie but when it's supposed to be funny it's hillarious. Expand

    I can just say one thing about this movie, that really sucked and was so bad that I wanted to kill the director, I will say just 4 words: This movie is SCREWED Expand
