There’s not a whole lot to be said about this movie. If you’ve even heard of the Jackass cast, you know what it’s about. It’s a bunch of morons thinking up the most violent, disgusting, painful things they can do to themselves and each other, and make a movie out of it.
While I was excited to see this movie, because I had found the first one so funny, it was a letdown. It wasn’t nearly as funny as the first one. Many of the bits seemed as if they were incomplete, as if they ran out of footage and put a failed attempt in as a bit. There were a few laugh-out-loud parts – the gauntlet, medicine ball dodgeball and a couple of others. Overall, however, it fell short. The Gauntlet is a bunch of them skateboarding or biking around a skate park with giant weighted bags swinging back and forth and inevitable hitting them. Medicine Ball Dodgeball was easily the funniest part. It’s just like it sounds – everyone playing dodgeball with large, heavy medicine bals…but with the added twist of being in the dark.
One other cool scene is when Steve-o almost gets bitten by a shark. Not that I’d want any of them to get seriously injured, but the shark closeups are awesome.
I’d say, either wait for the DVD, or just rent the first one or any of the seasons of the show.
