Joe dirt is among the cut and paste slapstick comedies from Adam Sandler’s production company. It features many of Sandler’s comedian friends and actors including Kid Rock, Brian Thomson, Adam Beach, and Christopher Walken, Jaime Pressly, Dennis Miller, Mitzi Martin, and of course David Spade. Joe Dirt came out in April 2001 and the sequel, Joe Dirt 2, came out in July 2015.
Joe Dirt was produced by Robert Simonds and directed by Dennie Gordon. The film script was written by Fred Wolf and David Spade. The main character, Joe Dirt is played by David Space – he’s a “loser” who was orphaned by his parents that abandoned him at the Grand Canyon. In short, he is a redneck who is a bit out of touch and that is the humor of the movie!
Joe is a janitor with acid wash jeans and a mullet hairdo which makes him the type of person who is mocked by others. The movie is about his quest to find his parents. His quest takes him along from one adventure to another.
Eventually he makes his way to Los Angeles where a “shock-jock” radio host (played by Dennis Miller) brings Joe dirt on his radio show to mock and make fun of him. As Joe’s story unfolds though, he begins to win people over and they start to root for him and help him make progress on his journey.
