Overview

Dennie Gordon directs Saturday Night Live alumnus David Spade in the comedy Joe Dirt, which comes to DVD with a pair of transfers. The widescreen anamorphic transfer preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1 and is preferable to the standard full-frame transfer. English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Surround, while a French soundtrack has been recorded in Dolby Digital Stereo. Subtitles are accessible in both of these languages as well. Supplemental materials include a pair of commentary tracks (one by the director and the other by Spade), deleted scenes, a blooper reel, production notes, and theatrical trailers. Whatever one thinks of the film, Columbia/TriStar has done a great job with this disc.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
With Joe Dirt, producer Adam Sandler continues to prove his proclivity toward comedies named after the main character (Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, Deuce Bigalow), and more than ever before, that he's got influence with an array of name actors willing to supply cameos and play down to the material. This last quality doesn't make Joe Dirt a good movie, but it does lend it a certain legitimacy by affiliation, enough so that it falls into the generous category of "better than it could have been." In addition to the usual cast of SNL collaborators, Joe Dirt features the game cooperation of Christopher Walken, Fred Ward, Rosanna Arquette, and Joe Don Baker, among others. David Spade is okay in the title role, but he's basically miscast, having woven a career of pipsqueak bullying marked by sarcastic retorts and insults. He looks less comfortable as the one who gets insulted, no matter how much he may yearn for a career makeover as the sensitive and sympathetic hero who gets the girl. The film offers some brisk and mindless charm functioning as a sort of Homer's Odyssey for morons, but only a couple of the episodes are even worth smiling about, with the lion's share consisting of uninspired slapstick centered around doodoo and food fights. There's not all that much to like in Joe Dirt, but it's hardly worth hating, either.
Chicago Reader
...in fact, the whole movie somehow keeps accidentally finding bits of magic as it exploits every genre convention you can think of.... There's a beautifully integrated, cannily surreal subplot that riffs on actor Christopher Walken's tendency to turn up in strange small roles...Lisa Alspector

This movie was more than just cool it was one of the most awesomest movies I have ever seen. I especialy liked his wig at the end. Personaly thought that it was a great idea to put Kid Rock in it.
