July 2, 2020
Director Jeff Tremaine has previously helmed four Jackass movies, so that should give you some idea about his aptitude with serious emotional material.

Even Airheads, the 1994 comedy that spoofed Sunset Strip hard-rock culture, had a more gripping storyline and emotional arc (and certainly more laughs) than this tale of a real band that helped define that scene.

It's very regressive in its politics.

If you're not familiar with the band, this'll be quite a shock. If you are, you'll have fun but be left wondering what could've been.

If you get queasy easily, definitely just watch Pete in Set It Up instead.

Vince Neil may have wailed to take me into his heart in "Home Sweet Home," but after watching this poorly acted, laughably juvenile adaptation of his band's tell-all chronicle of the same name, I'm ready to run in the other direction.
May 27, 2019
Slapstick biography that does a pretty good job at confirming not all bands should have their own portrait in a feature film. [Full review in Spanish].
May 23, 2019
The Dirt is an honest trash, coherent with the band it pays tribute to, if compared to the calculated, sweetened and aseptic Bohemian. [Full Review in Spanish]
April 19, 2019
Netflix's The Dirt tries to tell a 'no-nonsense' account of Motley Crue's notoriously lavish existence, only to end up confused (and, at points, unnecessarily misogynistic).
April 16, 2019
Bolstered by a killer soundtrack and a tornado of craziness, this Netflix original movie still feels sloppy and rushed.
April 10, 2019
What they were extremely entertaining at, even from the cheap seats. was being bad - which, sadly, is what The Dirt the movie is in all the wrong ways.
April 9, 2019
Biopic celebrates bad behavior: drugs, sex/nudity, cursing.
April 8, 2019
The Dirt is recommended for die-hards, but casual fans will find little to strengthen their affinity for the Crüe.

It's not great, but it's undoubtedly a better film than "Bohemian Rhapsody," even if the music isn't nearly as good. (Philadelphia Weekly)
April 4, 2019
At least The Dirt has the decency not to pretend Mötley Crüe made important music, but then you're just watching a poorly lit TV movie about misogynists who had it out for hotel furniture.
March 30, 2019
The Dirt is an entertaining detailing of the band's adventures from nobodies to somebodies, but ultimately it's just "the same ol' situation."
March 29, 2019
I liked the breaking of the fourth wall...it's an honest movie.
March 29, 2019
I think this serves well as a Netflix movie...I didn't know a lot of the story, so I was pretty fascinated by it.
March 29, 2019
Lowering every expectation possible will not prepare you for the subterranean depths to which this hapless history of Motley Crue can sink.
March 28, 2019
Without the songs, the Mötley Crüe of the Dirt are no different or more special than the thousands of bored rich men numbingly doing drugs and having sex with someone who is not their wife.
