Norm MacDonald stars as Mitch Weaver, a guy who just can't seem to find his calling in life. After losing yet another menial job, his girlfriend kicks him out, throwing all his stuff out of the apartment window into the street. Mitch goes to stay with his best friend Sam (Artie Lange) and we soon learn that Sam's dad, played by Jack Warden, has a bad heart and unless Sam can come up with $50,000 in a relatively short amount of time, his dad will die. Mitch agrees to help Sam, as not only is Sam his friend, but Sam's dad was like a father to Mitch while he was growing up, due to the fact that his real father wasn't around. After some hilarious attempts to raise cash, Mitch stumbles on an idea for a business by accident. Seems Mitch has a real flair for getting back at people who step on him, so he decides to open a revenge for hire business, Dirty Work, to help those who can't help themselves, for a fee, of course. The scene where they're hire to deal with a noisy neighbor had my friends and I rolling on the floor. The business isn't going well, until they get commissioned by Travis Cole (Christopher McDonald) to trash a property in order to condemn it, to which they'll get a large sum of money. Thing is, they do the work, but find out that Cole misrepresented his reasons for wanting the property condemned, and they soon find out they made a big mistake, and now Cole stiffs them on the payment. This sets up the ultimate revenge plan, leading to a great payoff.Read more ›
The actual plot is also creative, which is something lacking in most comedies today, which all rip each other off. The main characters have to raise 50 grand in order to get their father on top of the list to get a heart transplant. After a few failed attempts at traditional work, they get the idea to open their own "Revenge for Hire" business. From there the movie is just laugh after laugh after laugh (and it is during that too).
Not only do you see Norm MacDonald and Chris Farley in this movie, but as an added bonus when watching this movie, you get cameo appearences from tons of other Saturday Night Live alumnus. Not to mention the attractive Traylor Howard (from ABC's "Two Guys and A Girl, her being the girl) who plays as Norm's female interest in the movie.
Overall, this movie is star-packed, original, and hilarious, and aren't those the qualities that make a truly good comedy?

This was certainly a thing I watched. I turned it off at the scene where a skunk rapes a small dog. Yes, that's a thing that happens in this movie.Published 19 hours ago by foxyproxy
