A pair of garbage workers (Charlie Sheen and Emilio Estevez) are shocked to find the body of a city councilman in one of their trash cans. With help from a supervisor (Keith David), the duo must solve the case and find the man's killer while hiding the body from the cops. Estevez also directed and provided the screenplay for Men at Work.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The grotesque practical jokes perpetrated against two interfering bumblers are genuinely funny, while Estevez and Sheen remain cutely goofy even when indulging themselves in this adolescent idiocy."
‑ , Time Out
"It's just not much of a motion picture, dropping the potential of a unique workplace perspective to deliver static monkey business, streaked with leftover clown make-up from Weekend at Bernie's."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"Banal brotherly project concocted up by real life siblings Sheen and Estevez. An uneven and unfunny ruse under the dour direction of Estevez"
‑ Frank Ochieng,
"In fairness to the two actors, who have appeared in much better films, they don't have much to work with here."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"Men at Work stinks up the joint worse than the garbage that the title characters haul."
‑ Kurt Dahlke, Apollo Guide
"The movie's desire to please is tireless, also engaging. Mr. Estevez's screenplay is not entirely coherent, but it has a number of comically crackpot lines."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"Lame trash men comedy, early Estevez and Sheen."
‑ Steve Crum,
"The Sheen brothers display how useless they are in this, the dumbest of dumb comedies, proof that they'll never be confused with the Marx Brothers."
‑ , Film4
"Just tell me why?"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"The garbage man motif is pretty fitting."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"Like the jokes, the brothers' rapport seems recycled from childhood. Sheen and Estevez are hardly working."
‑ Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"Despite its ample flaws, Men at Work is never boring and often is a lot of fun; however, it would have benefitted from the pruning of a few of its misfired visual gags,"
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Golf clap!"
‑ Kevin A. Ranson,
"At times fun, at others too smart for it's own good. It's big flaw: the long, drawn-out ending."
‑ Michael Clawson, West Valley View
"Men at Work will be a painful experience even for fans of the stars."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
