Product Description

From the producing team that brought you Deuce Bigalow and Big Daddy. David Spade plays Joe, whose search for his family has him hittin' the road and keepin' it real with every lowlife he meets, including a sweet hottie (Brittany Daniel), a janitor (Christopher Walken), and a psychotic cannibal (Brian Thompson) with whom he has a brief interlude. Through it all, Joe keeps on trucking all the way to L.A., where a shock jock DJ (Dennis Miller) targets Joe as the butt of his show. But Joe's plucky spirit encourages listeners to cheer him on and help him find a better family than the one he thought he wanted. Rock on!


Another of those cut-and-paste comedies from Adam Sandler's production company starring one of Sandler's erstwhile Saturday Night Live colleagues, The Adventures of Joe Dirt finds the magnificently caustic David Spade emasculated by a sentimental script and shapeless, haphazard cutting. Spade plays the title character, a white-trash orphan in search of the parents who abandoned him at the Grand Canyon. The humor is supposed to come from Joe's misadventures, his redneck gullibility, and his encounters with such figures as a serial killer, a wacked-out janitor (Christopher Walken), and a lovable gal (Jamie Pressly) who may, unfortunately, turn out to be his sister. But the squishier requirements of the story, requiring the audience to feel deeply for the pain of Spade's caricature, are an irritant and force Spade to veer from the nastier stuff he does so well. With Kid Rock, Dennis Miller. --Tom Keogh

Customer Reviews

Probably one of the greatest, funniest movies of all time.
Great cast, a TON of quotable lines, a feel good story and just a great movie for all ages to enjoy.
A comedy that can make you laugh and entertain, as movies are intended to.

Yes, the humor is silly and often intentionally stupid, but I can't help but love it. If it's more cerebral or subtle humor that you want, you will not find it here (beyond the excellent mantra: "life is a garden, dig it," that is). The Joe Dirt experience is all about good laughs from silly jokes, wacky characters and ridiculous situations. Highly recommended for those who like 70's rock, nostalgic hair styles, and anyone who pulls for the underdog. Joe Dirt will give you that, and some gutbusting laughter to boot.

Why the fuss about mindless humor? Exactly what is wrong with that? There are plenty of us who after a long stressful day want to sit in an air conditioned movie theater and be mindlessly entertained with stuff we really don't have to think about. Joe Dirt gives this type of entertainment. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against movies that one has to be sharp minded to "get", but once in a while it's nice not to have to think so much. I would recommend Joe Dirt to anyone who is seeking that kind of entertainment. Incidentally, I usually hate David Spade, but I could barely tell that was him underneath the mullet. I can't wait to get it on DVD.

"Joe Dirt", is a total classic movie. It ranks up there with "Me, Myself and Irene", "Tommy Boy", "There's something about Mary" and oh you can't forget "Dumb and Dumber". If you have seen any of these movies then it's a sure in that you'll love "Joe Dirt". Its one of those movies you'll enjoy over and over again. I think it is the classic lines that just seem to crack you up.
Joe Dirt is a classic white trash trailer dude, that gets lost at the Grand Canyon when he's a kid. He tells his story of where he is today. A janitor at a radio station. The station ends up broadcasting his story and it ends up getting the listners interested and becomes famous.
This story is very humorous and has a bit of a love story in it. I am sure you'll love this movie, if you like comedy.

The Story of Joe Dirt is a Story that Deserves to be told, it's Funny, Uplifting and... Nice, which was a Change from the Vile, Mean, Gross out comedy I went in Expecting (and of course... Wanted to see). Sure, it has moments of Ingenious Gross out comedy, but At it's Core, and for most of it's Running time, it has a lot of Heart. David Spade's Leap to Big Screen Leading man is a Successful one, like the films producer Adam Sandler, and their Mutual Friend Rob Schneider, Spade is the Underdog with a Heart of Gold and I for one couldn't Wait to see him come out On Top.
Spade is (you guessed it) Joe Dirt, a Mullet-wearing Loser whose life has been Fraught with Failure and Overcome by Opposition, well Not Quite overcome, as Dirt is an Undying Optimist. He is brought onto a Radio show one day by a Satirical DJ (Dennis Miller) to be the Butt of all the Jokes, but as his story unfolds, the DJ, the Listeners, the Entire Country get caught up in his story and he becomes a National Hero.
The film is Always Amusing, Sometimes Hysterical one. It features a Wonderful Supporting cast that, no matter How much screen time they get, they Give they're all. Dennis Miller is Naturally a Hilarious man, he is also one of the most Underrated comedians in America, I just Love the guy, he can do no wrong. Brittany Daniels is Sugary Sweet and Boundlessly Beautiful as Joe's Sweetheart. Jaime Pressly is Endlessly Sexy and Fiendishly Funny as a Strange Acquaintance of Joe's. Brittany and Jaime are both Unbelievable Beautiful actresses and they also prove themselves to be Quite Talented Comediennes.
Christopher Walken gives a cameo that threatens to Steal the film out from under Joe's feet, he is a Brilliant performer and I Await the day when he takes on a Full-Blown Lead role in a Comedy.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Ken Fontenot TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on August 25, 2003
Format: DVD
After watching this film, the first thing that came to mind was "Forrest Gump." This silly comedy gives you a fun story that you'd expect from guys like Sandler and Spade, but with this goofy, feel-good storyline. Spade plays "Joe Dirt," a dim-witted, overly positive redneck who tells his story of searching for his lost parents to Dennis Miller, who plays one of those annoying morning DJ-types. All along his journey, he ends up meeting odd characters and winds up in outrageous situations like Hanks' "Gump." As the film progresses, Los Angeles(where the radio station is located) becomes captivated by the simpleton's plight and he becomes a local hero.
As with any film starring Spade, this movie has some very silly situations, but you can't help but laugh at them no matter how stupid they are. This is one of those movies that falls under the category of "guilty pleasure."
One glaring omission from this film is Chris Farley, who, if alive, would have definitely been in this film. Without Farley, however, Spade does a solid job and gives the viewer what to expect: sophomoric comedy.
One note: "Dirt" is from Louisiana, so was the "Waterboy." This seemed to offend a lot of people from Louisiana because they felt that both films degraded people from the Pelican State. I'm from Louisiana, and I wasn't offended in the least bit. If anything, these films show the resiliency of the Bayou State's people and their "never give up" attitude, albeit in two rather buffoonish characters. Just remember that these characters are so over the top, that you'd have to be an idiot to believe that everyone from Louisiana is so dim-witted.
