Overview

Shortly after leaving the "Weekend Update" anchor slot on Saturday Night Live, Norm Macdonald resurfaced in this comedy about smart-aleck Mitch Weaver who teams with buddy Sam McKenna (Artie Lange of Mad TV). They open a revenge-for-hire business (Dirty Work Inc.) in order to raise $50,000 so Sam's father (Jack Warden) can get a heart transplant. After they bring down a dictatorial movie theater manager (Don Rickles), they next hire prostitutes to pose as dead bodies during an auto dealer's live TV commercial. Millionaire real-estate developer Travis Cole (Christopher McDonald) is bothered when Mitch and Sam interfere with his plan to wipe a woman's home out of existence. Cole hires Dirty Work to trash a building, so he can have it condemned. However, Cole doesn't own the building, and problems arise, mainly since the grandmother of Mitch's girlfriend lives in the building. The feud escalates. Cameos by Chevy Chase, the late Chris Farley, former child star Gary Coleman, Adam Sandler, and John Goodman.

This is an awesome movie for any Norm MacDonald fan. It has that dry witty humor that he has displayed throughout his career. I would also suggest that people who have never seen his work watch it, because he has the best comedic skills in the industry. MUST SEE!!!

I am currently watching Dirty Work for probably the 30th time now, I love this movie. Fish in the washer, Hookers in the trunk and moths in a theatre, damn right its funny......even sober!

This is probably the funniest movie of all time. This movie is funnier than any movie of all time. The writing is histerical and the physical appearence of the characters is just as good.

Dirty Work is responsible for some of the funniest scenes and one-liners in movie history. The plot's not perfect but the comedy is close and if you like Norm Macdonald-ish sarcasm you will love Dirty Work.

Dirty Work is a comedic spectacular featuring Norm MacDonald, one of todays funniest men. It also features that fat guy on SNL, and a small part for Chris Farley. It has some great one liners along with some sexual perversions, and some great advise for daily planning. A must see.
