Screwed Parent Guide
Parent Movie Review
Willard Filmore (Norm MacDonald) does anything and everything for Miss Crock (Klained Strictch), the unappreciative wealthy woman he has served for the past 15 years, just as his father did. Wanting badly to get out of Crock’s employ, he finally reaches the point of no return upon opening his Christmas present from Crock. Expecting a replacement for the tattered uniform he wears (and his father wore), he instead finds a pair of cufflinks and a pie—fresh from the factory Crock owns.
The only thing Crock does care about—besides money—is her dog. So Filmore and his friend Rusty Hayes (David Chappelle) hatch a dognapping plan that’s sure to make them rich. Instead, the dog puts up a fight that covers the house in Filmore’s blood. With Filmore missing in the morning, everyone’s convinced that he has been kidnapped, leading Crock, the police, and her business assistant Chester Oswald (Sherman Hemsley) on a wild chase of miscommunication and mistaken identity.
Racing The Nutty Professor II for the rudest movie of the year, Screwed’s best attribute is its short 82-minute running length. But even in that amount of time the writers manage to cram in every type of joke and innuendo possible in an attempt to make audiences squirm. Near female nudity, rear male nudity, conversations alluding to oral sex and homosexual acts, drug references, and scatological humor are only some of the “choice” moments in this film.
If the absence of any positive values for young audiences isn’t enough to make you pause before hitting play on this title, then consider the typecast writing and cardboard performances—right from the grumpy old lady (Crock) to the street wise black dude (Hayes).
