Occasionally funny, but all too often driven by the juvenile conviction that anything even remotely connected with homosexuality is riotously funny...

The outrageousness isn't consistently sustained, and the pic tends to peter out somewhere around the two thirds mark.

A ribald flood of comic bliss.

Okay starring vehicle for Norm MacDonald, but you'd think he could do better.

: "Saturday Night Live" alum Norm Macdonald's feature debut ain't great, but he is.

Why does Hollywood think that everyone who ever appeared on "Saturday Night Live" deserves a film career as a reward? What's the excuse for showcasing Norm Macdonald, a third-rate Dennis Miller knockoff whose delivery is slower than Priority Mail?

Tasteless? Oh, yeah.

...proves that a comedy doesn't need an R rating to be crude, rude, or stupid. Even an innocent PG-13 can do the trick.

A tone-deaf, scattershot and dispiritingly cheesy affair with more groans than laughs.

Don't bother to hang around for the outtakes. They're not funny either.

The jokes just aren't funny, and Macdonald's sardonic, 'non-acting' style of acting quickly becomes tiresome.
| Original Score: 18/100

It's no epic, but what do you want? DiCaprio?

Pretty poor as a movie, but hilarious as a vehicle for its unique star.

[A] screamingly awful, achingly unfunny comedy...

Worthless but awfully earnest slapstick from Macdonald, who ain't finding the Big Screen quite so simple.

Attempts to carry on the comedic-vengeance tradition, with arguably mixed results.

Didn't provide enough good jokes to sustain anything more than a half hour TV program.

A movie that makes even Don Rickles unfunny.

For a film called Dirty Work, what ensues is rather clean of spirit.
