 SPLICEDwire | "Joe Dirt" review (2001)
"Joe Dirt" was obviously written by people who owe their careers to sketch comedy.
This David Spade vehicle about an inbred, mullet-haired, 98-pound nitwit has no structure to speak of other than the main character narrating four-minute vignettes about meeting road movie oddballs and fantasy sexpots while crisscrossing the country on a quest to find the white-trash parents that abandoned him as a child.
He's a janitor at the radio station and the show's producer thought he'd be the perfect sitting duck for Miller's on-air degradation.

 Comedy Central: Movies - Joe Dirt - Review
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.
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.
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.

The plot sort of focuses on a dispeptic, murder-obsessed Texas cop played by Joe Don Baker and his oh-so hot side-kick: a fl-eyed, raven haired Maltese beauty whose name escapes me (Helena Abella?).
Anyway, they are in Malta tracking a bad, bad Italian that killed Joe-Don's partner, and in return Joe-Don killed the Italian's brother and then the Italian's flunkies arranged for the plane he and Joe-Don were on to land in Malta and that's the back-story.
The great quirky casting of Joe Don Baker(Walking Tall,Goldeneye,Joysticks,Cool Hand Luke,In The Heat Of The Night TV Series),Bill McKinney(Deliverance,Lots of Eastwood films!),Rossano Brazzi(The Christmas That Amost Was'nt)and director of the film Greydon Clark appears as a sheriff makes this one cool movie,despite not having much of a plot!!!

 BPCP: Mitchellany!
Always near the top of every favorite-episode list ever compiled, the deceptively unassumingly titled Joe Don Baker vehicle, "Mitchell" (1975) is the grand centerpiece of The Mads' infamous Experiment #512.
As a bonus, we are inescapably drawn — sucked, if you will — into the weird and slackardly Bizarro-Cannellean mid-70's world of the most ill-conceived maverick cop in filmdom and just quite possibly the most outrageous and outright unappealing "action hero" ever....
As portrayed by the sturdy and usually quite adequate Baker, our titular character is a big ol' big-city cop with absolutely no discernible redeeming traits.
