Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Dirty Deeds

    Dirty Deeds is a crazy comedy movie, much like any other teenage flick. It includes all the constituent particles of a high school drama, from the ‘secret crush on a really hot girl' to the 'finding true love'.

    It kicks of with the homecoming weekend at Roosevelt High School, the time to perform the ‘dirty deeds'. The dirty deeds being a list of ten outrages and raucous pranks or rather challenges which have been handed down from generation to generation of students in the school. No one had ever been able to perform the whole list of acts except for one legendary teen hero. Nobody knows where that man is but they all look up to him as some sort of Hercules!
    Zach, tries to protect the heroin's brother, who had accepted a challenge from ‘the most popular guy at school' to perform the deeds but he ends up accepting the challenge himself because the prize had been changed to the hot girl Meg on whom Zach has a huge crush.
    The Dirty Deeds turn out to be not only outrageous but bizarre and perhaps disgusting. They included dangerous tasks like stealing a car costing more than $100,000 and hitting the toughest kid in town (who also turned out be a complete psychopath!) to something as revolting as making out with a whole wheat bread loaf!
    But the hero, being the hero that he was, completes all the challenges with in the prescribed limit of time, with the help of a few friends of course, even the guy whose car Zach steals comes to his help, that is of course after he had given Zach a lecture about how to live his life and how these stupid things did not matter in the bigger picture of life. He also gets the heroin (Arielle Kebbel) who didn't happen to be Meg (Lacey Chabert) but nevertheless.
    What he also gets is a few lectures from a number of people including the teen Hero whom they had looked up to as the coolest guy alive and who had now become a homeless person (they never explained what happened to him).
    All of this was the director's feeble attempt at giving the movie some depth or a higher meaning.
    The movie contains crude humor, sexual content, foul language and some violence, therefore it has been rated a PG-13 although I would say that the rating should have been a little higher.
