Spade, who almost invariably plays smug or smarmy characters, proves he really can act.

Entertainment Weekly
Ends up blowing its own joke. Instead of making Joe blissfully arrogant in his Southern rock dude myopia, it turns him into a shuffling masochistic loser.
50
New York Post
Little more than a series of sketches, tied together by Joe's on-air interrogation by a nasty shock jock played by Dennis Miller.
43
Mr. Showbiz
A full-throated shout-out to the lowest common denominator.
38
Philadelphia Inquirer
Just a big chunk of waste flushed from a Hollywood studio.

Chicago Sun-Times
Joe Dirt is so obviously a construction that it is impossible to find anything human about him; he is a concept, not a person.
25
Knows its audience and doesn't stint on the flatulence jokes, poop jokes, leg-humping dogs and moments of homo-panic.
25
Structured loosely enough to work in all the excrement and incest jokes necessary to seem hip these days.
10
Rolling Stone
In one scene, raw sewage is dumped on Joe. See Joe Dirt and you'll know how that feels.
10
Wall Street Journal
Redefines the notion of a feature film another notch downward.

New York Daily News
Talk about waste products; think of the time, effort and money that went into this movie.
