Synopsis


Joe Dirt
As the title character of Joe Dirt, David Spade plays a "white trash" janitor at an L.A. radio station, whose mullet hairdo is just one of many personal oddities that make him the object of much ridicule. And the sanitation gig is just the most recent of Joe's many incarnations during a tumultuous life, which got off on the wrong foot when Joe was abandoned at the Grand Canyon by his parents as a young child. After stumbling into the on-air studio, Joe steadily recounts the sad and comical story of how he cared for himself and journeyed around the country trying to relocate his family, all while being prodded, teased, and eventually embraced by a sarcastic deejay (Dennis Miller) and a rapt listening audience. His travels involve stints selling fireworks, wrangling alligators, riding aloft in a car dealership display balloon, and being held captive by a Silence of the Lambs-style serial killer. Despite numerous setbacks and bruising physical injuries, Joe emerges from each episode with his spirit intact as he searches optimistically for his roots, and eventually for the chance to return to the one place he was accepted -- a rural farm where the girl of his dreams (Brittany Daniel) awaits. The directorial debut of Dennie Gordon, Joe Dirt was produced by Adam Sandler's production company, Happy Madison, and features musician Kid Rock, also debuting, in the supporting role of Joe's rival. ~ Derek Armstrong, Rovi

    I laughed which is what i wanted to do while watching the movie so that is a good thing for me you the viewer your mileage may vary. Bluray is solid good picture and sound looks good blown up large and has good 5.1 lossless sound If I were to choose a word to sum it up it would be "clear" as thats what I was thinking while watching this bluray in my home theater. The picture was clear and sharp if you are a fan bluray is the best way to view it plus its cheap.

    Trust me, I live in the south, and David Spade spoofs as a "hick" about as good as I've ever seen. Just look at his mullet and no sleeve shirts. This movie has tons of one-liners that you'll be repeating for days or even weeks after. To enjoy this movie, I recommend a few friends, a relaxed atmosphere, and an open sense of humor.

    Typically this isn't the kind of movie I like to watch but my friend said the first was hilarious. There were some funny scenes, but I got bored with it quickly and didn't finish the movie before it was even half way. My friend continued to watch and I spoke with him later and he said it wasn't as good as the first.

    This is a silly, but funny movie from the turn of the century. David Spade has been hit or miss for me, but in this movie it is definitely a hit. Has a great cast of memorable characters that give you lines you will be quoting for a long time.

    Joe Dirt is one of those movies that you almost feel guilty loving. It is silly and has dialouge and scenes that you find yourself repeating after it is over. We you want to watch something to just give you a chuckle than Joe Dirt is it.

    Some movies can pull off a great sequel, or more, this is NOT one of those movies. While I highly recommend that you see the first one, don't waste your time or money on this one

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
