Trivia

Goofs

When Joe first learns that he is back in 1965 he says he was born in 1965. Then when he meets Lynyrd Skynyrd he says he was 8 years old when he heard about the plane crash that killed Ronnie Van Zant. This cant be so because Joe would've been 8 years old in 1973 and the plane crash that killed Ronnie Van Zant didn't take place until 1977. See more »

User Reviews

the subtlety and innocence of the character was completely gone.
30 July 2015 | by reaseltbimSee all my reviews

The reason I liked the first Joe Dirt a lot was because Joe Dirt was a likable and kind of an innocent character. The first movie had some crass jokes and it had some dark humor in it, but Joe Dirt was always the shinning star of the story. He felt like a real character that was just down on his luck, the humor might have been silly and gross at times but Joe Dirt was still an innocent, Naive, good person looking for his parents. That was the core of the story. A good guy that did not have the best life and wanted to find his family. What do we get here? Just a cynical version of that character.

the subtlety of the character is completely gone. This felt more like am actual mean spirited Parody of the first Joe Dirt. there was nothing deeper to this movie than just the jokes and the cameos. Say what you will about the first movie but it at least tried to have a heart underneath all the jokes. What happened to "Life is a garden, Dig It" what happened to that? that's my point. This movie felt like if it was written and Directed by Robbie (Kid Rock) from the first one. The same exact thing happened to the Dumb and Dumber sequel and the Vacation sequel. any kind of innocence and naiveness those characters had was replaced by foul humor. Not sure what is happening to comedy anymore. Everything is just loud and obnoxious today.
