Movie Info

"Dirty Laundry" is a modern-day prodigal son story with a twist. It follows Patrick, a magazine writer, who seems to have the "perfect life" until one day there is a knock at the door. On the other side stands a secret that brings him face to face with the traditional southern family he hasn't seen in more than 10 years.

Critic Reviews for Dirty Laundry

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (6)

  • The tone is good-natured enough to make a simple movie semi-watchable.

    December 7, 2007 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Looking for plot holes? You can't miss them. But if you go in hoping for a good time, you'll find that, too.

    December 7, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Mr. Jamal's direction ranges from clumsy to competent. Fortunately, even as Mr. Jamal's characters hit notes reminiscent of a half-baked television pilot, they disclose eccentricities that his cast spins into comic gold.

    December 7, 2007 | Rating: 3/5
  • Overwritten and under-directed by Maurice Jamal, the movie contains several honest moments but remains too awash in clich (C)s and stereotypes to take seriously.

    December 7, 2007 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The film's plea for tolerance is commendable but would have more weight if only it were executed with more panache.

    December 4, 2007
  • Visually dull, without an ounce of cinematic purpose, pic will work most effectively on the small screen.

    This was an example of a good idea for an interesting drama that was ruined by bad acting and a story that was a little too slow to start.
