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."
