“While Not The Most Original Movie Ever Made, "Dirty Deeds" Eventually Shows There's Some Substance To It's Style.”
Dirty Deeds is too mild to be dirty, yet too dirty to be charming, and altogether too generic to be much of anything.
Scott Brown - Entertainment Weekly
Not so much a coherent story as a string of cliches.

Even viewers who can still laugh at jokes about accidental urine consumption will be hard pressed to crack a smile -- or, for that matter, a wallet.

Movies like Dirty Deeds are supposed to be in bad taste -- but that's only excusable if they're funny, which isn't the case here.
James Berardinelli - ReelViews
As feeble as a teen comedy can get.
Kirk Honeycutt - Hollywood Reporter
Recycling is alive but not well in the outmoded teen comedy Dirty Deeds, with a result that is more toxic than intoxicating.
Kevin Crust - Los Angeles Times

The film's biggest (and, truthfully, only) laugh comes from seeing ex-major leaguer Todd Zeile and current steroidal slugger Jason Giambi credited as executive producers.
Mark Keizer - Boxoffice Magazine
[An] unfunny raunch-fest.
Tim Grierson - L.A. Weekly
The fact that the whole setup is idiotic wouldn't make a difference if the damned thing were funny.
