Note to Self: This Movie Stinks


This is a pretty great idea for a movie, seriously ruined by a retarded script. Pretty bad on just about every level, except for a few funny cameos.

And that "Note to Self" bit got really old after the first time.

I'd suggest avoiding this movie unless you're a diehard Norm McDonald fan

As Norm himself would say, "Im gunna take this straw and stick it up your pee hole.

Dirty Work was funny as hell. You're the only one who thinks otherwise

Except for the fact that the movie totally flopped.

I'm a Norm fan myself. Dirty Work had a few laughs, but had just about every aspect of a terrible movie. I vastly preferred his later movie - Screwed. Also a flop...

....And the fact that it flopped is supposed to mean something??

Because unless you're a complete idiot you DO know that great movies often flop.

This movie rules.

If it had made more money would you have liked it better?

I usually grade movies on a curve, myself. It had a low budget, had only two real actors (Jack Warden and Christopher MacDonald) and didn't set out to be the next Caddyshack. Given all that and the fact that it cracks me up, I consider it a winner.

You obvisously love Norm why else would you take the time to post then. Norms rules

This movie is hilarious. Simply put. If you didn't think this movie was funny, you need to go ahead and jump off a cliff because you're practically dead anyway.

Well said!

I wish there really was a revenge-for-hire business to give haters like the OP their comeuppance.

a waste of time

How could anyone actually like Dirty Work? The only good part about it was Chevy Chase. Everything else was crap.

I just watched it again for the first time in a few years. It's got some funny stuff in it but it's just too mainstream a comedy.

Norm is funny as hell as a standup or when he's just talking. But he just doesn't translate well to acting, same thing on SNL, he was hilarious on Update but not very good in sketches.

This movie could have been good and it has some really funny stuff in it, (like Norm getting raped in jail, Chevy Chase betting or Rocky 3 and Farley of course) but it's just not that great of a movie.

Another thing I hate is how it has all those lame songs from the late 90's in it, you can tell the studio or whoever wanted to sell the soundtrack.

Anyway, like I said, Norm is ungodly funny, too bad this movie isn't.

reply

I thought this movie was funny as hell. Norm has a special quality that not many other comedians have. Even when he sucks, its hilarious.

reply

Actually, this is one of the funniest movies of the 1990s

Note to self, the OP has the personality of a dead moth
