I seem to be among the majority of reviewers, who didn't find anything terribly objectionable about Dirty Deeds, but nothing particularly praiseworthy either. Great cast of actors, somewhat wasted on an ordinary and very predictable script. Lovely outfits and wallpaper, but none of the characters had enough depth to make me see them more than the actors who were playing them.
