Dirty Work is a 1998 American comedy film starring Norm Macdonald, Artie Lange, Jack Warden, and Traylor Howard and directed by Bob Saget. In the film, long-time friends Mitch (Macdonald) and Sam (Lange) start a revenge-for-hire business, and work to fund heart surgery for Sam's father Pops (Warden). When they take on work for an unscrupulous businessman (Christopher McDonald), in order to be paid, they create a revenge scheme of their own. Notable cameo appearances include Don Rickles, Rebecca Romijn, John Goodman, Gary Coleman, Chris Farley (in his final film appearance in any capacity), and Adam Sandler as Satan.

The film was the first starring vehicle for Macdonald and Lange and the first feature film directed by Saget, coming one year after he left his long-running role as host of America's Funniest Home Videos.

Though the film received broadly negative reviews from critics and earned low box office returns (making this a box office bomb), it has become a cult classic. Co-star Artie Lange later became a regular on The Howard Stern Show, where the film was sometimes discussed.
