Joe Dirt is the kind of no­brainer Adam San­dler would have starred in dur­ing the Happy Gil­more- Billy Madi­son phase of his ca­reer. But where San­dler’s in­ex­pli­ca­ble charm would have al­lowed him to walk on the pol­luted wa­ter Joe Dirt con­fuses with com­edy, poor old David Spade just sinks like a stone to some very murky depths in­deed. In the movie’s de­fence, the script does throw the oc­ca­sional spark, but noth­ing re­ally ca­pa­ble of set­ting au­di­ences ablaze with laugh­ter.
