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 (7)

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 clichà (C)s and stereotypes to take seriously.

December 7, 2007 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

Cheesy crockpot of a film.

December 6, 2007 | Full Review…

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.
