Christopher Null
January 1, 2000
Worthless but awfully earnest slapstick from Macdonald, who ain't finding the Big Screen quite so simple.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
John J. Puccio
Movie Metropolis
April 8, 2001
...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.
| Original Score: 3/10

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

A movie that makes even Don Rickles unfunny.

JoBlo's Movie Emporium
January 1, 2000
Didn't provide enough good jokes to sustain anything more than a half hour TV program.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

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

Don't bother to hang around for the outtakes. They're not funny either.
Brian Webster
Apollo Guide
January 1, 2000
The jokes just aren't funny, and Macdonald's sardonic, 'non-acting' style of acting quickly becomes tiresome.
| Original Score: 18/100
Marc Savlov
Austin Chronicle

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

A stupid lowdown vulgar comedy.

Los Angeles Times
February 14, 2001
A tone-deaf, scattershot and dispiritingly cheesy affair with more groans than laughs.
James Sanford
Kalamazoo Gazette
June 23, 2002
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?
Michael Dequina
January 1, 2000
For a film called Dirty Work, what ensues is rather clean of spirit.
