Courtney Love had a good time watching The Dirt, but it wasn't because she thought the movie was good.
Love recently described watching the Mötley Crüe biopic with a few female friends, saying she and her friends couldn't help but lampoon the film.
"We watched the dumbest Netflix film ever called The Dirt," Love told Interview. "It's so stupid and vile about women, and just fucking dumb. It was super fun to groan together."
She described an afternoon of relaxation, with massages, tea and the company of friends who all found the film, based on the 2001 memoir, as lousy as could be.
Love continued: "I was like, 'When's Ozzy gonna snort the ant?' Then, within seconds, he snorted the ant. Then the
character was like, 'I have a new girlfriend. She's sweet. She's wonderful.' I was like, '...And her name is heroin.' Two seconds later: 'Her name is heroin.' I was killing it."
Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee did not find Love's comments as amusing as she found his movie.
"Hey Courtney," he wrote via Twitter. "When's your movie coming out? Oh wait.... Never!!!!!"
While Love may not have a movie in the works at the moment, there are already numerous documentaries (in various formats) about Love and her relationship with Kurt Cobain. If Love was ever interested in making a biopic, it's honestly hard to believe she would have a problem selling it.
Sixx has insisted that the film is as accurate a portrayal of the band's behavior during its '80s heyday as possible.
Lee himself has added that the film isn't meant to be a celebration of the band's debauchery but a "cautionary tale" that celebrates the music.
