Joe Dirt | 2001 | PG-13 | - 6.5.6

A janitor (David Spade) living in a boiler room becomes the guest on a talk radio show and captivates the hearts of millions with his pathetic life story. Also with Brittany Daniel, Christopher Walken, Erik Per Sullivan, Dennis Miller, Kid Rock, Adam Beach and Rosanna Arquette. [1:22]

SEX/NUDITY 6 - Mostly played for laughs: Lots of sexual innuendo, including references to genitalia, masturbation, incest, anal sex, casual sex and homosexuality. A man tells a woman to show him her breasts; we watch her pull off her shirt and see a close-up of the side of her bare breast. Through a window we see a person's bare buttocks. A woman rides a horse in slow motion and three men look at her lustfully; we see the bottom of her buttocks (she's wearing very short cut-off shorts) when she dismounts the horse. A man and woman flirt; the man is shirtless and makes physical gestures and the woman sensually licks her lips and cotton candy; they meet and decide to have sex. We hear a man and woman having sex (the woman moans loudly) and see the headboard knocking against the wall. We see a man and woman in bed post-coitus obviously naked but covered by sheets (their shoulders are bare). A man thinks a woman is his sister and we hear them have sex; the man then finds out she's not his sister and she wants to have sex again so decides to have sex with her but can't get aroused so she starts yelling "I'm your sister! I'm your sister" and then we hear them having sex (and see the headboard banging against the wall). A cross-dresser in black tights and woman's underwear kidnaps a man. A man is obviously naked but his genitalia and waist are covered. What is thought to be a corpse under a sheet gets an erection when a man starts talking about how sexy his wife is (we watch the sheet rise). A dog humps a boy's leg several times and the dog's owner tells the boy to let the dog continue until he's finished. One dog humps another several times. Lots of cleavage.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - Mostly played for laughs: Threatening with guns and several shots fired. A boy ties a bottle rocket to a cow's tail, the cow flatulates and the boy's hair catches on fire, knocking him down. A dog's testicles are frozen and stuck to a porch and we see several shots of the scrotum being stretched as the dog tries to unstick himself (a man then loosens it with a spatula). A man shoots a dog; we see the man aim the gun and hear the shot fired but don't see the impact; we later learn the dog died. A man falls out of a hot air balloon onto a tower and onto the ground but is unhurt. Two men fight; one man flips another to the ground. A man covered in oil urinates on a fire and then catches fire himself (we see him engulfed in flames). A man puts lighter fluid and gasoline in a bucket and shoots fireworks at it, causing an explosion. A man tries the same thing with what is supposed to be an atom bomb and we see a huge atomic mushroom and watch one man disintegrate. Excrement drips all over a man. Kids throw hotdogs and chili at a man. A boy accidentally starts an explosion in chemistry class; we see lots of smoke and hear several kids choking. A woman talks about her parents being eaten and killed by alligators. A man is caught in an alligator's mouth; the alligator slams him to the ground several times. A man stands on the edge of a bridge and ponders suicide. A man hangs from a bridge by a bungee cord. A man's foot is caught between two railroad tracks and we hear an oncoming train; later we see that the man has lost his lower leg. A woman says she killed her husband by putting him in a wood chipper. A man has a large chunk of excrement as his best friend (he thinks it's a meteorite).

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
