    The sex-comedy-for-girls idea never quite takes off.
  2. The movie equivalent of a medical experiment gone horribly wrong and kept in a jar of formaldehyde as a warning to others: Comedy can be a deadly weapon in the wrong hands.
  3. 25
    The lighting and makeup are exceptionally harsh; all the women look shockingly rough beneath their garish makeup.

    Few pretty actresses have so thoroughly discarded their vanity in an outright vanity piece as Jenny McCarthy does in Dirty Love, so it's unfortunate for her this exercise in comic self-abnegation, which she wrote for herself, falls so awfully flat.

    The rest of the cast is uniformly awful, including Carmen Electra and Kathy Griffin as a wacky medium who asks, "What do I look like? A comedian?" Not from where I'm sitting.

    Hollywood is definitely at its worst here and not the type of Hollywood which would dare to greenlight this; just Hollywood being portrayed on film.
  7. 10
    Dirty Love offers a series of desperate would-be comic moments.
  8. 10
    It will surely yield nominations for worst picture.
  9. This banal comedy is filmmaking of the lowest order.
  10. Dirty Love wasn't written and directed, it was committed. Here is a film so pitiful, it doesn't rise to the level of badness. It is hopelessly incompetent.
  11. 0
    A kind of "Sex and the City" for L.A. bottom-feeders awash in clich├ęd, self-loathing misogyny that would make Howard Stern flinch.
  12. Even by the standards of its bottom-feeding genre, Dirty Love clings to the gutter like a rat in garbage.

    This *will* be a cult classic eventually. Really funny if you understand the goofiness that makes it so. Ironically, I find that the people who actually appreciate this movie are much smarter than those lambasting it for no reason. Really it's an 8/10, but I'm giving it 10/10 to counteract the idiots.
