Dirty Work - Movie Synopsis & Plot
Don't get even ... let Dirty Work, Inc., do it for you!
Ever want to get revenge on someone but are too afraid of the consequences? Ever wish you could get someone else to do the Dirty Work for you?
Meet Mitch Weaver (Norm Macdonald), a one-time human punching bag who is about to turn his youthful trauma into a thriving business. Picked on, laughed at and beaten up, Mitch and fellow misfit Sam McKenna (Artie Lange) survive their childhood years not by keeping a low profile but by plotting and carrying out revenge on every small-time despot that crosses their path. From school bullies to meter maids to felonious crossing guards, nobody is safe from their wrath.
But with childhood's idyll far behind them and no way to avenge unemployment, Mitch and Sam find themselves desperate for cash when Sam's dad Pops (Jack Warden) requires expensive heart surgery. What are a couple of losers to do? Even a phone sex line won't hire them. There's got to be a better way to make a buck than clinical trials.
Upon hitting rock bottom, Mitch and Sam think the unthinkable. Why not make money doing what comes naturally to them?
