Critic's Review Heading
Very Poor
With the presence of David Spade and a title like Joe Dirt, there's no mistaking that you'll get anything other than entertainment of the lowest brow. Yet that expectation doesn't quite prepare one for just how low the film goes to not get laughs--or the film's apparent true agenda.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

As expected, the ones who truly enjoyed this movie were teen males. A few older males also rated it high. Most of the other opinions came in pretty low, but no one rated it as poor or terrible. Because of these mediocre opinions I wouldn't recommend this movie to any one but teen males. However, if you do see it, it's very likely that, at the very least, you will feel it's fair, since no one rated it below "fair."


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
The year is 1975 and little Joe Dirt is dumpster diving at a Grand canyon tourist stop. After gorging himself on half-eaten snacks, he emerges from the garbage bin, only to find that his parents have left him. NOW, this trash-eating eight year old is going to have to raise himself.

Now grown up and working as a janitor, Joe's got a mullet hairdo, acid-washed jeans, and a dream—to find the parents that he lost, or lost him. Blasting Lynyrd Skynyrd in his souped-up muscle car, the irrepressibly optimistic Joe hits the road alone in search Of his folks.

Along the way, Joe befriends a strange but wonderful cast of characters including a high school janitor (Christopher Walken), an alligator trainer (Rosanna Arquette), the fireworks salesman "Kicking Wing" (Adam Beach), the beautiful but untouchable Brandy (Brittany Daniel), and Robby (Kid Rock), Joe's rival for her attention. Through triumph and adversity, Joe Dirt plows on.

As his wandering, misguided search takes him from one hilarious misadventure to another—from an unexpected flight in a dentist's molar- shaped hot-air balloon, to a strange interlude with a curvaceous young woman (Jaime Pressly) who might be his sister, to capture by a cannibalistic psycho—Joe finds his way to Los Angeles, where shock-jock Zander Kelly (Dennis Miller) brings Joe on his radio show for a quick on-air interview. Dirt is haplessly stuck in the '70s—the perfect target for the rapier wit of Kelly.

But as Joe starts to tell the tale of his bizarre life, and of his search for the parents who left him, listeners are surprisingly captivated by his hilarious and often touching story. Jeers turn to cheers, and an entire city starts to tune in daily to hear the adventures of Joe Dirt. It isn't long before audiences worldwide join to help this unlikely hero unearth the mystery of his family's disappearance—with startling results.
