Dirty Deeds Movie Review
The best teen comedy since "American Pie," "Dirty Deeds" is not. How I wasted an hour and half on this piece of crap, I know not. What I know is that there is a reason why "Dirty Deeds" never made it to a wide release.
Starring Milo Ventimiglia and Lacey Chabert, "Dirty Deeds" clearly wants to be the next great teen comedy, but falls flat in every aspect. For starters, the movie is PG-13. How can a film be a great teen comedy with a PG-13 rating? The lack of sex, nudity and dirty jokes, especially for a film that implies just that, is an absolute killer. The lack of a clever script is strike two. And strike three... well, the film just doesn't live up it's name.
What do you think when you hear of a teen comedy called "Dirty Deeds?" Do you think of drinking a beer in front of a cop, or steal a car? Do you think of punching the toughest kid at school or finding a missing person? Hell f**king no. You think of something disgusting, something funny, something sexual and something involving nudity. That's the only reason I watched this movie - and it has nothing like that. Nothing.
"Dirty Deeds" if a flop from beginning to end. Enough said.
