Joe Dirt is a janitor with a mullet hairdo, acid-washed jeans and a dream to find the parents that he lost at the Grand Canyon when he was a belligerent, trailer park-raised eight-year-old. Now, blasting Van Halen in his jacked-up economy car, the irrepressibly optimistic Joe hits the road alone in search of his folks. As his wandering, misguided search takes him from one hilarious misadventure to another, Joe finds his way to Los Angeles, where a shock-jock brings Joe on his radio show to insult him. But as Joe's life story unfolds, jeers turn to cheers, and an entire captivated city tunes in to hear the adventures of Joe Dirt.Written by
According to Dennis Miller (on his radio show 11/26/2008) he has yet to see the movie, saying that "Someone told me there is a scene where fecal matter falls from an airplane and hits someone on the head", and this may not be his type of movie to watch. But likes that it gives him "caché with his kids' friends." See more »
In the beginning of the film, you see the 8 track tape in the player and Joe "turns it up". The label reads "Lynyrd Skynyrd Second Helping" and "Steroe 8" (with stereo spelled wrong). In the next scene when he turns the music down at the guard shack, the label is torn up and not legible. See more »

Least I know my car will blow his off the road!

You really think you can match that slant 6 of yours against this 426 hemi? Huh? Well then let's do it little boy!
That's my girl!
Let's rock, Dirt-boy!

I usually hold myself to a high movie standard. I usually would not consider a movie like Joe Dirt the "cream of the crop." But like many other times in my life I was wrong. Joe Dirt is a fantastic heart-felt flick staring David Spade as a pathetic white trash orphan in search of his parents. He meets many a folk along the way leaving an impression with them all. I saw this in the theater and thought, "wow what a funny movie." But then I caught in on Comedy Central a few years later and lo and behold I was hooked. Good plot, great humor, hot chicks, and even Kid Rock playing his white trash nemesis (it was a real stretch for him :P). If you see this movie for 10 bucks at Walmart or Blockbuster do yourself a favor and buy it. It will keep you company on even your darkest nights.
Life's a garden, DIG IT!!!
