Whether you loved the original Joe Dirt or detested its idiocy, it doesn’t really matter: a sequel is on the way. Announced back in October of last year, the movie witnesses the return of its titular white trash character who is played again by David Spade. Back one more with a rat-tailed mullet, Spade is revving the engine on another road trip that arrives some 14 years after the original and now, you can catch a glimpse of the ageing Mr. Dirt and his upcoming adventure in the the first trailer for Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser.
As comedy sequels go, it appears to hit all of the necessary marks, paying homage to the first one while throwing in some new elements to ‘spice up’ Dirt’s antics.
“Joe ‘Keeps on keepin’ on,’” the actor told EW. “He’s married now and doing his best, but things don’t all go perfectly for him, as usual. Like he says in the movie, when he gets a setback, ‘I just keep getting stupider.’”
Joining Spade for the sophomore trip into stupidity are returning cast members Christopher Walken, Brittany Daniel, Dennis Miller and Adam Beach alongside newcomers Patrick Warburton, Mark McGrath, Charlotte McKinney and Kevin Farley.
Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser is available for your viewing pleasure on July 31 on Crackle.
In this sequel to the 2001 cult favorite, David Spade (“Rules of Engagement”) returns as the mullet-wearing, rock and roll loving, down on his luck white-trash-hero who embarks on another epic journey, this time through the recent past, the heartland of America – and his own mind – to get back to his loved ones. Joe Dirt is back with a vengeance, and a mop. David Spade reprises his role alongside Oscar winner Christopher Walken (WEDDING CRASHERS), Brittany Daniel (“The Game”), Dennis Miller, Adam Beach (FLAGS OF OUR FATHERS). Patrick Warburton (“Rules of Engagement”), Mark McGrath (SHARKNADO 2), Charlotte McKinney (“Dancing with the Stars”) and Kevin Farley also star in the sequel.
