This films is based upon a true story of what happened to Michael Legge, one of the writers, as he was on his way to a meeting with producer, Michael Z. Gordon. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss possible ideas for a new screenplay. After hearing Legge's bizarre experience on his way to the restaurant, Gordon looked at him and said, "There's you story!" Three weeks later, this script was born. See more »
Dirty Little Trick is a B grade movie. I don't even think the producers would argue with that. It was obviously made on the cheap and that's OK if you realise it up front. Just because a movie is made on the cheap doesn't mean it has to be crap!
Maybe I'm slow, but it took a while for me to realise that there were time shifts and, when I did, all the goof reports I was thinking of making suddenly weren't goofs at all. I think a big problem these days is that we are constantly bombarded with huge-budget movies by true- genius directors starring truly gifted actors so that anything that falls short of that gets criticised. But when you think about it, that criticism is sometimes a bit unfair. How may block-buster movies a year are released on average? Certainly not enough to entertain keen movie- goers sufficiently which means that in between the block-busters, we have the choice of watching TV soaps or a B-grade movie - and I know which I prefer (so long as it isn't C-grade!).
Having said all that, Dirty Little Trick could surely be criticised for numerous things if you are into criticism. But why should I get picky when I know what I'm getting anyway? So I won't. I doubt I need to actually because keen movie-watchers will not need me to tell them all the shortcomings. Instead, why don't we look for what's good? And what's the most important aspect of any movie? Surely it's the story. And the story of Dirty Little Trick isn't bad.
However, if you're one of those pain-in-the-butt perfectionists who spends most your time looking for continuity errors and less-than-star- quality-acting, don't watch this movie unless of course, you derive some sort of masochistic pleasure from looking for faults. But, if you are happy to spend an-hour-and-a-half being mildly entertained, then watch it.
