The outrageousness isn't consistently sustained, and the pic tends to peter out somewhere around the two thirds mark.

A stupid lowdown vulgar comedy.

TV Guide

Occasionally funny, but all too often driven by the juvenile conviction that anything even remotely connected with homosexuality is riotously funny...

Los Angeles Times

A tone-deaf, scattershot and dispiritingly cheesy affair with more groans than laughs.

Don't bother to hang around for the outtakes. They're not funny either.

Okay starring vehicle for Norm MacDonald, but you'd think he could do better.

Painfully bad, Bob Saget's Dirty Work is a bland comedy that is not worth your time and relies on stupid humor for making you laugh. Problem is, is that… More

I saw this on TV one day, but I didn't see all of it. There were some funny scenes, but for the most part I wasn't too entertained.
