Joe Dirt is a classic


"You're gonna stand there, owning a fireworks stand, and tell me you don't have no whistling bungholes, no spleen spliters, whisker biscuits, honkey lighters, hüsker düs, hüsker donts, cherry bombs, nipsy daisers, with or without the scooter stick, or one single whistling kitty chaser?"

Great flick..

I loled... it was awesome!

Didn't think the Ruffalo hype was legit, but he pulled that role off.

The entire theater cracked up, myself included. Loki addressing him was just as funny.


That was quite litterally my favorite part of the movie.

Love the villian selection for Avengers 2, assuming that is what was teased at the end... which is usually the case.

yeah I was was very sceptical when I first heard the critics singing his ''praises'', but he played his role as Bruce Banner better than Eric Bana and Edward Norton ever did,to me he is the the definitive Bruce/Hulk.

Very true. His performance and Tom Hiddleston's stole the show.

I loved the movie, but Ruffalo's getting way too much credit for excellent writing coupled with the fact that he doesn't have to carry the film by himself. The shortcomings of Jackson, Johannson, and Evans get covered up as well.

Was really looking forward to seeing this and finally rented it last night. Majorly disappointed. I thought they had a good idea for a story but did absolutely nothing with it.

Decent fight scenes, but only three of them.

Not so good acting, terrible camera work...

The story was sketchy as well. They never really explained why they wanted to set her up and have her killed. Yeah I get the fact the Antonio Banderas character wanted her dead... but why? And if so, good lord, why go through such an elaborate plot to kill her. She was still on speaking terms with her boss... just call a meeting and shoot her for pete's sake. Why come up with the whole, "secret job in London where your eye candy" crap?

When the ending credits popped up I was like... that's it? There should be a lot more to this story.

I let my son watch it and didnt tell him my opinion until he told me his first. he thought exactly the same thing as me. The one point he made that I didnt pick up on is the fact that there was no music until the ending credits. Interesting.

Interesting take... I can't say I agree. There were more than three fight scenes. I can think of more than that off the top of my head (in diner, in hotel room, on beach, at dad's house, rooftop chase with police, etc). Unless you are going to just have fighting scenes and no real movie, I'm not sure what you expected.
The acting wasn't great for the main character, but the rest did fine. She's new, so I'm not going to judge her too much for that.
I thought the plot was just fine too... spoilers:
Studer wanted Jiang dead because he was going to expose his criminal activity. They wanted Mallory to go abduct him because she's good, but they wanted to tie up the loose ends and frame her for it, rather than have Studer get the blame. She was just the scape goat.

i was speaking in regards to people's movie opinions i respect around me. but regardless rotten tomatoes's critic ratings are wrong alot of times. but its all about what expectations you go into it with.
