Dirty Deeds is a 2002 film shot in Australia. It was directed by noted fringe director David Caesar and stars Bryan Brown, Toni Collette, Sam Neill, Sam Worthington and John Goodman and produced by Nine Films and Television, the film and television production arm of the Nine Network, owned by PBL Media, now Nine Entertainment Co.
Barry Ryan is a late 1960s Australian mobster who controls the Sydney gambling scene and is making huge profits from casino slot machines. His profitable venture attracts the unwanted attention of the American Mafia, who attempt to secure a piece of the action by sending in two of their henchmen: the pensive, world-weary veteran Tony and his violent, not-too-bright sidekick Sal. Ryan soon finds himself fending off the trigger-happy "yanks", outback-style, while also contending with his feisty wife, needy mistress, and a crooked cop.
Music and soundtrack
The soundtrack for the film was produced by Tim Rogers who also wrote much of the original music. You Am I performed several tracks on the soundtrack including a cover version of the titular song by AC/DC. Several other Australian artists collaborated with Rogers and You Am I on the soundtrack.
Dirty Deeds grossed $5,083,187 at the box office in Australia.
