Storyline

When the mother of Junior and his younger brother Scooter, twenty-something, dies, they realize they need a woman around the house, since they haven't a clue how to cook or keep house. Their first attempts, with hookers and strippers, are disastrous. But when they kidnap DeDe from the grocery store, they find someone that's eager for an excuse to leave her abusive husband (who also happens to be the local sheriff). He takes revenge and burns down their ramshackle house, leaving them broke. No problem, they've got their guns, and they start robbing the local bank, which actually likes the excitement, especially since the boys are so polite about it.

Saw it at L.A.F.F. and loved it!
23 April 2001 | by PhxFilmGeekSee all my reviews

It's been said that "It's the little things that count...", and in this case, it's the plethora of little touches that work to make this film a truly fun and funny ride.

I had the opportunity to see the World Premiere of 'Dirt' at the Los Angeles Film Festival, and I'm still laughing. It did take a while for the film to get revved-up, so to speak, but once it did, it was one of the funniest films I've seen in a very long time. I'm not a critic, so I won't go over every aspect of the film, or spoil any of the cleverly crafted jokes. But, I thought the casting was excellent, right down to the lisping, subtly effeminate lawyer played by Luke Perry (Beverly Hills 90210). Another gem was the part of Margaret played by Olivia Rosewood (Almost Famous). Directors Michael Covert and Trace Fraim, are hysterical as Junior and Scooter, 2 men, still mourning the death of their mother, who set out to find a woman to replace her. What they find is a life of crime riddled with humorous mishaps.

I recommend this movie to anyone in need of a good laugh.
