About the Movie

When two best friends team up to film a comedy about getting revenge on bullies, the exercise takes a devastating turn when one of them begins to think of it as more than a joke.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Remarkable as much for its insights as for its audacity, "The Dirties" approaches school violence with a comic veneer that slowly shades into deep darkness. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Oct 3, 2013

Fresh: A masterful blend of black humor and queasy dread ... – Inkoo Kang, Los Angeles Times, Oct 3, 2013

Fresh: The Dirties explores high school violence from a refreshingly original angle. – Zachary Wigon, Village Voice, Oct 1, 2013

Rotten: Technically cruddy and tiresome in its we've-seen-a-lot-of-movies dialogue ... – Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out, Oct 1, 2013

Engender Discussion

We cannot ignore the problem of your culture. This movie is meant to make you think, and discuss the issues with other people. I want to be clear, this is a hard movie to watch. But, like all true art, it is needed in our culture. This movie is sensationalizing, isnt arrogant, isnt going to far. What this movie does is humanize some marginalized kids, and helps to show that they are real people. Poeple who need help. And you cant just put your head in the sand and ignore it anymroe.

sheesh, just plain blahhhhhh

Interesting but boring

This movie offers an original perspective on the real life societal problem of school bullying and associated gun violence (why it's 2 stars and not 1 star). Yet the movie lacks substance and provides a weak and dreary dialog as it provides isolated moments of interest in support of the plot. In addition, a lack of character development prevented the audience in developing a connection to any of the characters. At fifty-three minutes into the movie the boredom became obvious as I began to hit the Apple TV remote in order to determine time remaining - a true litmus test for any movie's quality. With only thirty minutes remaining I pushed forward in the hopes of receiving a dramatic climax to this tiresome event - only to discover a unique yet very disappointing ending. Do NOT recommend due to boring execution of the plot, lack of character development and disappointing ending.
