In the scene where Mitch and Sam are getting berated by Mr. Hamilton, Don Rickles started ad-libbing insults. At one point, Don Rickles started insulting Norm McDonald and not his Mitch Weaver character. This, of course, didn't make it into the film but the "baby gorilla" line directed towards Artie Lange was used. See more »

"Dirty Work" is hilarious, with that oh-so noticeable SNL humor in it. Norm is at his best here, bringing a combination of his SNL roles to the big screen. I don't understand why this film could go so unnoticed with it's on-target comedy. The only thing I can see wrong is the lacking story line, but that's not what this film was made for. This film was made to be funny, and is just that. One of the best SNL style comedies ever (up there with Wayne's World and Tommy Boy).
