A 2001 film staring Creator/DavidSpade as a mullet wearing janitor who's invited to be on a talk show, initially to be made fun of. However he begins recounting his life story and the movie showcases his journey to find his parents as he narrates, meeting a host of oddball characters along the way. Although the film was panned by critics, it was a modest box office success and was generally well-liked by those who watched it.

* {{Homage}}: This film is basically ''Film/ForrestGump'' with a lot more toilet humor. Both films have a similar framing device (the protagonist telling his life story to people), both Joe and Forrest meet several interesting characters in their lives and ultimately have a positive impact on those they meet, and even the love interests are similar. Forrest spends his life pining over his childhood friend Jenny, while Joe comes to realize that he only ever truly felt at home was when he was with Brandy. This is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded in the sequel's opening scene.
