A comedy that can make you laugh and entertain, as movies are intended to.

Great cast, a TON of quotable lines, a feel good story and just a great movie for all ages to enjoy.

One of the best movies ever, David Spade in his greatest A.F. (After Farley) movie.

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.

I am watching this movie on comedy central for the uncounted multiple time. There is something about the story line and writing that I am drawn to. I guess I love to root for the underdog and Joe Dirt is the ultimate underdog hero. Anyone who feels like an underdog may find themselves enjoying this movie as much as I do. Joe Dirt's upbeat personality somehow gives the loser in me a reason to feel hope.

Yea, its only a movie....but movies like any presentation of ideas, can be powerful to inspire as well as destroy. This movie is a silly comedy on the surface, but there is an underlying current of inspiration and hope within it for those who relate to Joe Dirt's social and familial alienation. And, it can make you laugh if you can sit back and let go of pretentions and just have some unselfconcious childish fun ( the best kind of fun IMHO). The scenes at the carnival are the funniest parts to me. "This ain't unicef!"

The ending is really cool - Just portrays the idea that it can be worth it to "keep on keeping on!"

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.

This movie is absoulutely funny. It makes you laugh all the way through. The cast couldn't have been picked better and the storyline is original. It's jokes about his hair and T-shirts are worth the watching all by themselves. The charecters are so hilarious because of their speech and mannerisms. For a good laugh, this is the one to watch over and over.
