Rating:
PG-13

The 1998 movie Dirty Work (directed by Bob Saget) stars Norm Macdonald as Mitch Weaver, a man lost in adulthood. As a kid, Mitch and his best friend Sam (Artie Lang) were taught not to take crap from anyone. They learned to stand up for themselves to the toughest of bullies by practicing the fine art of revenge. They may not have been the toughest kids, but they brought justice to anyone who picked on them with their clever and hilarious pranks. Years later, Mitch is grown-up and taking crap from pretty much everyone from his bosses at the jobs he can't keep for long, to his girlfriend who's fed up with his dead beat lifestyle. To make things even worse, Sam's father, the man who taught them to stand up for themselves, is dying of heart failure. His gambling-addicted doctor (Chevy Chase) offers to get him to the top of the transplant list, but names a price none of them can afford. Mitch and Sam have all but retired from pulling pranks when the abusive boss at their movie theater job (Don Rickles) pushes them too far. Mitch and Sam unleash a masterpiece of revenge on him, and receive the praise and respect of their coworkers. Mitch realizes revenge is the only thing he's ever been really good at. He and Sam open Dirty Work, a revenge for hire business. It's a long shot, but if they can make this new business work they can raise the money to save Pops. The cast is filled with Saturday Night Live alumni, including appearances by Chris Farley and Adam Sandler, and Traylor Howard plays Kathy, Mitch's love interest.
