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>

A film-making masterpiece! Four stars! This movie is PHAT!!!
7 December 2000 | by steve-575See all my reviews

I just watched this movie last week, and it was one the greatest movies I've ever seen. I almost died laughing. The Fat Boys are not only funny but they are great actors too. They should all have won Oscars for their performances in this movie. Anthony Geary should have definitely took home the best Supporting Actor trophy. He did not even get nominated??? He gives a performance of a lifetime. This is Ralph Bellamy's second role as a millionaire in an 80's film. He earlier appeared in the much inferior "Trading Places". That film doesn't even hold a candle to this one.

The Fat Boys play orderlies who are put in charge of an elderly millionaire (Bellamy). His nephew (Geary) hires them in the hope that their incompetence kills his uncle and he can inherit the money. What an original storyline!! In an era of remakes and recycled plots, it is so refreshing to see something original.
