FILM REVIEW :
David Spade plays "Joe Dirt", (complete with mullet hair-do) a janitor who was abandoned as a child & is now in search of his long lost parents (father played by "Remo" star Fred Ward). The film is hit & miss moving from one comedic set piece to the next. Look out for the hilarious cameo by James Bond villian Christopher Walken. Singer Kid Rock also appears in a small role. "Joe Dirt" was made on a budget of 16 million dollars & knocked by the critics but nevertheless grossed over 27 million dollars in the US alone. The tagline sums up the movie "He Came. He Cleaned. He Conquered".
"Joe Dirt" is available to buy from Movies Unlimited.
