Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Joe Dirt is a 2001 movie starring David Spade as a mullet-sporting janitor in search of his parents. The movie is filled with crass humor; in one scene, a dog's testicles are frozen to a porch and its scrotum is shown stretching as it attempts to free itself. Joe gets covered in human feces, is taken prisoner by a man who dresses in fishnet stockings and makeup and keeps him in a hole, and has his face burned when a cow passes gas into his face. Joe also is called a "queer" and a "retard" by bullies. A sex scene turns into a joke involving incest. There's also frequent profanity, including "s--t" and "p---y," and a misunderstanding in which Joe thinks a man with a thick Cajun accent wants to "see homos naked." Still, in spite of being treated so badly by so many people, Joe manages to maintain a positive attitude and lives by the credo, "Life is a garden. Dig it."

Sexual Content

References to masturbation and to the body parts of various women. Joe asks to see a woman's "boobies." A sexual encounter between Joe and another woman turns into a joke involving incest; the sex is heard (moaning, creaky bed springs) but not seen. Naked male buttocks when two pilots "moon" Joe from their airplane. A dog mounts Joe's leg and humps it. A dog's testicles are frozen to the porch, and the dog's scrotum is shown stretching as he attempts to free himself.


Comedic pratfalls. A combination of fire and a cow's flatulence results in a character's face being burned. Characters use lighter fluid and gasoline combined with Roman candles. A dog is shot and killed with a shotgun. Joe fights a bullying oil rig worker; the worker is killed by burning to death. Joe wears a T-shirt that reads "I Choked Linda Lovelace." Joe is bullied by office workers and shoved into a wall. Characters shoot machine guns. A crocodile traps Joe in its mouth and flings him around. A woman speaks of pushing her husband into a wood chipper. Joe gets covered in human feces and is taken prisoner by a man who dresses in fishnet stockings and makeup and keeps him in a hole.


Frequent profanity: "s--t," "hell," "crap," "suck," "son of a bitch," "p---y." Bullies call Joe Dirt a "queer" and a "retard." Joe calls masturbation "jerkin' my gherkin'." Joe misunderstands a man with a thick Cajun accent and thinks he says he's "seeing homos naked."
