Jenny McCarthy ...Screenwriter
Jenny Mc Carthy ... Screenwriter.
Hmmm.. cannot put the two together, cannot compute. Do not
understand. how did this get made?
Did she actually deliver the script on final draft? or on paper?
does she know what paper is?
Cannot conceive of this.
It's like trying to imagine the end of the universe. makes my
(first post, be gentle...)
I know McCarthy isn't everyone's cup of tea and that this flick isn't the
"thinking woman's guide to romantic love" but I laughed a lot when
watching this movie. And only rarely was it unintentional humor. I
thought the supermarket scene was inspired!
So, I will not be voting for it, except in the Worst Supporting Actress
And, just to show I'm not overly biased even though I run a Frat Pack
tribute website, I will indeed be voting for Bewitched in several categories.
Not Worst Actor -- Will Ferrell was the best thing in that movie.
So, there. I've said it. I laughed at Dirty Love. Come on, Razzie voters,
don't go for the easy, obvious choices!
The Frat PackTribute: Saluting Hollywood's Comedy Clique
ok, lets make something straight here: this movie simply & effortlessly sucked.....it wasnt funny, it was just plain gross....
the only thing that made a teensy bit better was that close shot of jenny's face with a (i think) blue background and her big (at least they appeared to be big) blue eyes with some "face cleanser" thing on.....she looked beautiful there (probably cause she had her mouth shut for a second there....just a second....)
Folks, this is a "review" of "Dirty Love" that was released to the press from
"Sundance." This release should be used as exhibit "A" for the case of
moviegoer vs. hack filmaker.
AINT IT COOL NEWS REVIEW
Oh, baby. I did not expect to like this film so much. This film is what "The
Sweetest Thing" so deperately wanted to be: A raunchy sex comedy from
the woman's perspective. It's audacious, gross-out humor, which mines
the comedic potential of just about every orifice in the human body, and
all of the sounds they make, offset with a brilliant (yes, I used the word
BRILLIANT) comedic performance by Playmate/game show hostess/all-
around perfect woman Jenny McCarthy, working from her own script.
The plot, thin as it is, involves McCarthy as Rebecca, a professional
photographer who is shattered when her model boyfriend is caught
cheating on her. After a visit to an oddly blunt and unsympathetic
psychic, she begins to plot revenge, continually escalating her efforts, all
in order to regain some of her dignity, and claim the romantic love that
she feels entitled to.
Now, Jenny McCarthy has always been a bit of a goofball. We've all known
that. It was this quality that seperated her from other models, and
actually endeared her to men and women alike. We also already knew that
she has a smoking hot body. The suprise here is just how gifted she is, as
she uses that body to full effect, to get both easy, broad laughs (bending
it, contorting it, abusing it during pratfalls, spraying it with assorted
messy substances), and more subtle ones (priceless reaction shots,
including one moment that she has alone with a mirror that makes me
smile every time I think of it). The festival guide compares her to Lucille
Ball, and while Lucille Ball certainly never shook her bare breasts outside
of a nightclub, as McCarthy does here, it's actually a pretty apt
comparison. Carol Burnett is another one of the physical comedy greats
that McCarthy can look forward to being compared to. You go ahead and
shake your head, but mark my words: This is a breakout performance.
What makes this movie succeed where other raunchy comedies fail, is,
like the American Pie films, it roots its humor in immensely likeable
characters, and invests the story with plenty of heart. This is not
crudeness for crudeness' sake; You really care about Rebecca, and feel for
her even when she is having what, for most women, would be the most
embarrassing moment of their lives, a huge set piece involving a mad
scramble through a grocery store that I will NOT ruin for anyone here.
And when, in the movie's Cinderella-ish climactic moment, she screams
perhaps the goofiest line in movie history, instead of groans, it provokes
cheers, laughs, and, for this viewer, a broad, ear-to-ear smile.
The supporting cast all get their moments, as well. Eddie Kaye Thomas,
fresh off of Stifler's Mom, again provokes envy as the everyman who
really, legitimately loves Rebecca, if only he could find the words to tell
her (everyone sigh, all together now). Carmen Electra, who for the first
few scenes was completely unrecognizeable, gets in a few choice laughs
with her waaaay-over-the-top performance as a wannabe gangsta type,
and Guillermo ("Yo, you better wrap that sh*t UP, B!") Diaz, also
unrecognizeable without his soul patch, was a riot, with his oddball
portrayal of a magician and potential suitor to Rebecca.
There are so many gags in this film that will stay with me for a long time,
including one scene that will find its place in the pantheon of the great
cinematic comedy bits of all time. I cannot recommend this film enough
for some great belly laughs, some sweet "Awww" moments, and one
virtuoso comedic performance by Jenny McCarthy.
I NEVER EVEN HEARD OF THIS MOVIE UNTIL I "SUBSCRIBED" TO THE RAZZIES!! WHAT IS IT ABOUT? BESIDES "LOVE"? WHEN DID IT EVEN COME OUT? I WOULDN'T EVEN BOTHER CHECKING IT OUT BECAUSE I DON'T LIKE JENNY M. SHE'S CUTE BUT GROSS I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW THE "PLOT" THOUGH. HAVING NOT EVEN HEARD ABOUT IT MAKES ME THINK THAT YES IT DID DESERVE THE RAZZIE AND IT'S OWN CATEGORY.
Well.. as a single 34, hot yes I wrote it, HOT woman born and raised in L.A.. I totally related and laughed my ass off throughout the whole movie... It is what it is, a funny, very staged, romantic comedy casted by very funny women and men. Carmen was incredibly hilarious, Kam was sweet and whory as her role was meant to be, and the ever so sexy, animated Jenny was awesome! Like I mentioned earlier, it pulled off what it meant to.. So those of you critics that are probably not so attractive woman and/or men, or just too insecure to watch sexy bitches on screen having a good time,.. this wasn't a movie produced to achieve "Oscar" status, it was simply meant to make you smile, laugh, and possibly relate, even maybe just a little, put together in a sweet and hilarious fashion... no big bucks drama just practical...Ali..
This has a lot in common with "Freddy Got Fingered". They both have Eddie Kay Thomas as their best parts, they both won a bunch of Razzies, their gross out films, and there both in my bottom 5 movies of all time. "Freddy"'s 3, and this turds 2. 1's "Inland Empire", 4's "Batman & Robin", and 5 is "Reefer Madness".
