Funny and wholehearted stories of six offbeat characters...
19 November 2016 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

"American Dirtbags" turned out to be a really nice surprise of a movie. I had initially thought this was going to be just another low budget and pointless movie. However, I was more than genuinely entertained with this movie.

It was great to see how the different small stories were all connected to one another in some way; some more obvious than others. And that continuity to the stories helped the movie along quite nicely.

And the acting in "American Dirtbags" also turned out to be quite alright. And having good acting performances in movies is always a factor that lifts up the movie.

The story in "American Dirtbags" follow six different characters, all of whom are somewhat quirky and offbeat. The stories follows their bad choices, which often leads to unforeseen and laughable consequences.

I can't point out any one single storyline as my favorite, because they were all funny and I really liked the way that they were woven together. I was more than entertained with "American Dirtbags", and if you haven't seen it already, I can warmly recommend that you take the time to do so.

"American Dirtbags" scores six out of ten stars from me.
