News & Interviews for Dirty Laundry
Critic Reviews for Dirty Laundry
The tone is good-natured enough to make a simple movie semi-watchable.
Looking for plot holes? You can't miss them. But if you go in hoping for a good time, you'll find that, too.
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.
Overwritten and under-directed by Maurice Jamal, the movie contains several honest moments but remains too awash in clichÃ (C)s and stereotypes to take seriously.
The film's plea for tolerance is commendable but would have more weight if only it were executed with more panache.
Audience Reviews for Dirty Laundry
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.
I don't know if I was just in the perfect mood to see this or what, but I found the movie charming, sweet, and really funny!
I liked this movie a lot better than the critics did. Perhaps I was just in the right mood but I thought it was a realistic "family" learning about eachother. But then again... what do I know about "realistic"? or "Family" for that matter...
