The original Joe Dirt, that classic fable about a janitor with a mullet wig attached to his skull, is essentially a road trip movie. It’s about David Spade as the eponymous Joe Dirt, traveling around the country in an attempt to find the parents who abandoned him at the Grand Canyon as a child. For Crackles Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser, Spade and director Fred Wolf (both of whom co-wrote the script) have decided to raise the stakes by introducing one of the most difficult road trip obstacles anyone can face: time travel. As seen in this trailer, Dirt finally has the family he’s always wanted, but when an unfortunate tornado somehow drops him into 1965, he has to figure out how to get back home without altering the timeline too much. Along the way, he runs into Dennis Miller and Christopher Walken reprising their roles from the first movie, as well as Mark McGrath, replacing Kid Rock as the villain played by a popular-ish musician.


Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser will be streaming on Crackle on July 16.
