Dirty Love (2005)



Critic Consensus: The laugh-free Dirty Love is a comedy dead zone -- it's aggressively crude and shoddily constructed.

Movie Info

A sexy woman discovers just how hard it can be to find a worthwhile man in this outrageous romantic comedy. Rebecca (Jenny McCarthy) is a beautiful blonde who thinks she has it made with her hunky boyfriend, Richard (Victor Webster); however, when she comes home early one day and finds him in bed with another woman, she realizes that isn't quite the case. Devastated, Rebecca takes the advice of her friends Carrie (Kam Heskin), a half-bright actress, and Michelle (Carmen Electra), a racially confused beautician, and throws herself back into the dating game to prove to Richard that she can do better. However, there's a problem -- Rebecca is a bit of a klutz, she keeps ending up with men who are either crazy or strange, and each date she goes on ends in disaster. Does Rebecca have any chance at either finding new love or winning Richard back? And is it possible her pal John (Eddie Kaye Thomas) might be interested in being more than just friends? Dirty Love was written by leading lady Jenny McCarthy and directed by John Asher, McCarthy's then-husband. ~ Mark Deming, Rovimore

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (12)

McCarthy is still a tremendously appealing presence, but her script about a gal who tries to move on after her himbo boyfriend kicks her to the curb is pure amateur hour.

The shtick is desperately crude and not particularly funny. One wonders why any actress, even a retired MTV game show hostess, would stoop to such a disgraceful gig.

Even by the standards of its bottom-feeding genre, Dirty Love clings to the gutter like a rat in garbage.

Audience Reviews for Dirty Love


Hilarious and cheeky comedy of sexy Jenny McCarthy who throws herself from one wild comic stituation into another. Jenny does an excellent job in her acting and script in this film.

Super Reviewer


Crazy insane and ridiculous humor all balled up into one boisterious adventure. Jenny McCarthy as the woman rejected by her ex-boyfriend and how she handles rejection is stuffed with forced laughter with the antics she goes through...See this if you dare...Ha ha...not.

Well is this film dumber than a doorknob, or what? This is a film that must've expected lowlights, and to be poorly recepted, but well, It is kind of worse than that..it is Hopeless and incompantant..well hopelessly without a cause for better judgement..and that is me being kind.
