    Recycling is alive but not well in the outmoded teen comedy Dirty Deeds, with a result that is more toxic than intoxicating.
  2. 38
    Dirty Deeds boasts a passably entertaining idea that is butchered in the telling.
  3. Too mild to be dirty, yet too dirty to be charming, and altogether too generic to be much of anything.
  4. Dirty Deeds is as feeble as a teen comedy can get.
  5. Reviewed by: Tim Grierson
    Directed lifelessly by sitcom vet David Kendall (Growing Pains), Dirty Deeds never shows real curiosity about its characters' pubescent world.
  6. Reviewed by: Justin Chang
    A dispiritingly lazy high school comedy.

    It's one of those cliche ridden, coming of age movies that always seem to make me smile no matter how redundant. The only problem I have with DIRTY Deeds is that it doesn't go nearly far enough. Full Review »

    Light and entertaining caricature that doesn't pretend to be realistic.
