The 2001 film Joe Dirt follows loveable loser Joe Dirt, played by David Spade, in his quest to find the parents who abandoned him at the age of eight while on a visit to the Grand Canyon. During Joe's epic journey to find his family he encounters a cast of oddball characters and comes to some startling realizations about what family and home really mean. As the film opens Joe is working as a janitor and living at a Los Angeles radio station where he is discovered by a producer. The producer can't believe Joe's entire white trash look and demeanor and invites him to appear on popular DJ Zander Kelly's, played by Dennis Miller, radio show. Joe recounts his odd life over the radio and even though Zander and the rest of the audience originally make fun of him, they all come to cheer for Joe in his quest to find his family. Joe also tells the tale of his life in Silvertown and love for town beauty Brandy, who is played by actress Brittany Daniel. Brandy had told Joe that his parents had died on the day he was abandoned, but Joe later finds them and realizes that Brandy had lied. Joe discovers that not only did his parents intentionally abandon him as a child, they are also horrible people who have only decided to come back in to his life because they believe his radio fame will help their business. At this point Joe is totally disillusioned with his life and contemplates suicide. Joe is luckily saved by his true love Brandy and a bumbling police officer. After he is rescued Joe realizes that his true family is all of the people that he met while on his travels, like mobster in hiding Clem played by Christopher Walken and Brandy. Before Joe can reach his happily ever after with his adoptive family he first needs to stand up to the bullies who have tormented him all his life. This final stand comes when Joe decides not to take the torment of life long bully Robby, played by Kid Rock. He stands up to Robby in hysterical fashion and then he, Brandy and Clem ride off in to the sunset. Joe Dirt is a great film for fans of David Spade's humor and those looking for a light comedy where the good, although weird hero triumphs over adversity.
