Even by the standards of its bottom-feeding genre, Dirty Love clings to the gutter like a rat in garbage.
Stephen Holden - New York Times
Mark Holcomb - Village Voice
Comedy can be a deadly weapon in the wrong hands.
Jami Bernard - New York Daily News
Here is a film so pitiful, it doesn't rise to the level of badness. It is hopelessly incompetent.
Roger Ebert - Chicago Sun-Times
Falls so awfully flat.
Todd McCarthy - Variety
Jenny McCarthy's giddy charm is wasted by screen writer Jenny McCarthy.
Kyle Smith - New York Post
This banal comedy is filmmaking of the lowest order.
Richard James Havis - Hollywood Reporter
Attention, Razzie voters.
Kevin Crust - Los Angeles Times
McCarthy is still not funny, never was, never will be.
Felix Vasquez Jr. - Cinema Crazed
It doesn't make a lick of sense, largely because none of these characters acts like a recognizable human being.
Ethan Alter - Film Journal International
McCarthy is still a tremendously appealing presence, but her script about a gal who tries to move on after her himbo boyfriend kicks her to the curb is pure amateur hour.

When Carmen Electra as a ghetto body waxer is the highlight of your film, you've got trouble.
Christopher Null - Filmcritic.com
Dirty Love is ninety mintes of soul-crushing idiocy, wrapped in incompetence and smothered in fart jokes.
David Cornelius - eFilmCritic.com
Aims to be the chick-flick answer to Deuce Bigalow, but even that turns out to be setting its sights too high.
Jeffrey Westhoff - Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
The shtick is desperately crude and not particularly funny. One wonders why any actress, even a retired MTV game show hostess, would stoop to such a disgraceful gig.
Lisa Rose - Newark Star-Ledger
Dreadfully lacking...about as awkwardly received as a training bra on Anna Nicole Smith's bouncy bosom...a cheap-minded farce aimed at the lowest common denominator
Frank Ochieng - Movie Eye
You can't really like a movie that features a beautiful young woman who sometimes is naked and you end up leaving the theatre wishing you could see less of her.
Kim Williamson - Boxoffice Magazine
The shoddy script and train wreck of a supporting cast don't do much to win us over.
- E! Online
I can remember only one other scene in the entire 90-minute movie that made me laugh...
JoBlo - JoBlo's Movie Emporium
This dyspeptic exploration of modern romance was written by TV-star Jenny McCarthy, who tailored its vulgar slapstick to her own apparently endless willingness to be the butt of raunchy gags.
Maitland McDonagh - TV Guide's Movie Guide
One thing you can say for McCarthy: The woman knows no vanity.
Bob Strauss - Los Angeles Daily News
McCarthy ... is so busy trying to prove she doesn't take herself seriously that she undersells what is actually some serious comedic talent.
Josh Larsen - Sun Publications (Chicago, IL)
Facing up to such nasty, untidy realities of modern coupledom would have given Dirty Love some of the edge it aspires to, but seriously lacks.
Mark Olsen - L.A. Weekly
An hour and a half of uninspired dreck.
Edward Havens - FilmJerk.com
The lowlights are many.
Richard Roeper - Ebert & Roeper
It's simply a showcase for actors trying to make it somehow by presuming they can overdo it and people will notice.
Rory L. Aronsky - Film Threat
McCarthy has no comedic skills, and the film more than adequately proves it.
Eric D. Snider - EricDSnider.com
There's a really good film in here kicking and screaming (and bleeding) to get out.
