116. Dirty Deeds
American Pie is a film most people know. It’s one of those important teen comedies that has defined a number of inferior offshoots. Dirty Deeds is pretty much one of those films. It’s done in that type of vein and it isn’t as good as American Pie (assuming you even liked that). Having seen the whole American Pie franchise (Naked Mile and Beta House included) this is better than those Direct – To- DVD sequels and a number of other attempts to copy that teen comedy formula.
The plot is outlandish, but it could work. Unfortunately the “dirty deeds” are pretty lame and the moral lesson hastily attached to the end was unnecessary. Milo Ventimiglia was ok as the lead and Lacy Chabert was pretty hot in her few scenes. It was funny enough, but nothing spectacular or even really good. Pretty much what you would expect from the description of the film.
