Running a revenge for hire business is some DIRTY WORK!

I always told everybody the perfect joke would be where the setup and punch line were identical. – Norm MacDonald

I ain’t apologizing for anything, especially if it’s a joke. – Artie Lange

Directed by Bob Saget, co-written and starring Norm MacDonald, Dirty Work is the funniest buddy comedy about two losers opening a highly successful business specializing in revenge. Two friends, Sam and Mitch, need to find $50,000 to pay for Sam’s dad’s heart surgery fast! When they’re fired for getting revenge on their abusive theater-owner boss, they have a great money-making idea: a revenge-for-hire business. The friends are soon successful but not all their clients are good customers. When real estate developer Travis Cole tricks them into vandalizing a building that isn’t his, Sam and Mitch concoct their best revenge plan yet.
