Sweet Revenge (also released as Dandy, the All American Girl) is a 1976 American comedy film directed by Jerry Schatzberg. It was entered into the 1976 Cannes Film Festival. This was the second leading role for actress Stockard Channing in a film, following the previous year's The Fortune in which she co-starred opposite Jack Nicholson and Warren Beatty.
Vurrla, also known as Dandy, is a car thief. As a public defender tries in vain to understand her, the only thing driving the young woman is to steal enough automobiles to make enough money to buy her dream car, a Ferrari Dino.

The film was barely released or reviewed. Vincent Canby did not review it until June 26, 1981 in the New York Times, under the title Dandy, the All-American Girl. He wrote: "Dandy' is not exactly a failure, though it is easy to understand why it failed to find an audience." In critic Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide book of reviews, this film, as Sweet Revenge, is called a "turkey" and given his lowest possible rating, "BOMB."
