Rating:
PG-13

Men at Work is a movie about two dysfunctional garbage collectors whose chronic bad behavior ultimately gets them into a world of trouble. In the film, Carl Taylor and James St. James would rather do just about anything than pick up the garbage. They dream of owning a surf shop, but mostly just make life difficult for the people on their route. One day, while spying on a woman who lives across the street, they see her being beaten up by a local politician named Jack Berger. Carl and James shoot the man in the butt with a pellet gun to teach him a lesson, but things take a turn for the worse when they discover him dead the next day in one of their garbage cans. Afraid that they will be blamed for the death, Carl and James try to cover up the death. This only leads to more trouble for them and eventually puts their lives in jeopardy.
