#779 Disorderlies (1987)

Here’s one of those movies I’m not really eligible to review; after seeing Disorderlies just about a thousand times on a VHS back in the day, it’s impossible for me to be totally objective here.

Starring The Fat Boys, a hip hop trio from Brooklyn made famous by the MTV, Disorderlies features some very obvious comical cues adapted from The Three Stooges – another comedic trio. The Fat Boys proof to have a some natural comedic talent to them and their mellow presence translates effortlessly to the celluloid.

Disorderlies is one of those comedies that doesn’t do anything exceptionally well but still ticks most of the right boxes and provides 90 minutes of sure entertainment. The musical pieces included blend in the overall experience well, and their amount is kept just right: A forced musical this luckily isn’t.

Sadly The Fat Boys’ comedic career didn’t continue after Disorderlies – personally I wouldn’t have minded seeing them once or twice again on the silver screen.
