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
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)
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
An hour and a half of uninspired dreck.
Edward Havens - FilmJerk.com
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
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.
