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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

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)

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.

The Dirt is an entertaining detailing of the band's adventures from nobodies to somebodies, but ultimately it's just "the same ol' situation."
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

I liked the breaking of the fourth wall...it's an honest movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.75/5
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.

Lowering every expectation possible will not prepare you for the subterranean depths to which this hapless history of Motley Crue can sink.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

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.

It would be easy enough to embrace the trashy, shallow elements of The Dirt, but the truth is we deserve better.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
March 28, 2019
The Dirt is one of those films that's easy to watch because it feels universal. [Full Review in Spanish]
March 26, 2019
Chooses to celebrate instead of interrogating what the band's excess says about the world and how they were able to get away with it that desperately tries certify the band's "legendary" status as survivors.
March 25, 2019
It's perhaps a more impressive feat that someone managed to make such a limp movie out of the story.
March 25, 2019
The trouble is, the director... can't quite handle the tonal shifts in a convincing way.
March 25, 2019
This is rock bad-boy lore as a rocking bore, an endless parade of recreated afterparty ecstasy and emptiness that robs The Dirt of the vicarious thrill it had on the page.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
March 25, 2019
A superficial biopic. [Full Review in Spanish]
March 25, 2019
The authentic, rule-breaking storytelling strategy would have been to portray Mötley Crüe as the children they were, instead of some teenage wish-fulfillment fantasy that retro-cons their history and sugarcoats their bad deeds.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
