Are you kidding me? A movie about people wanting to make a movie with nothing but jokes? This have got to be the weakest plot and storyline ever!
Nevertheless, I did sit through the entire movie. And I will give the movie this much that many of the jokes were actually good and funny. But the whole point of the movie was pointless and a waste of time. Perhaps that was what was intended. But wow!
Most noteworthy in "Dirty Movie" was Christopher Meloni (playing producer Charlie LaRue). He was hilarious, and he was well helped along the way by Mario Cantone (playing the producer).
There was also a lot of really unnecessary nudity in the movie, which brought the movie down a notch. It was tacky and just didn't serve the movie well.
For a National Lampoon movie, then "Dirty Movie" was a very weak experience. Sure there were some good laughs at some of the jokes, but the overall impression of this movie is that it wasn't a movie that was necessary to have been made, much less released onto the market. But hey, I guess there is a niche for every weird and bizarre taste. If you like comedies, there are a lot of more nice and interesting comedies available, even other National Lampoon ones.
