Jackass Number Two
Guess who just made number two?
Jackass Number Two is a compilation of various stunts, pranks and skits, and essentially has no plot. Chris Pontius, Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Bam Margera, and the whole crew return to the screen to raise the stakes higher than ever before.
Again, much like the first Jackass movie, Number Two isn't strictly a 'film' as much as a big screen extension of the gross out, daredevil MTV series that struck a chord with primarily teenagers in the early part of the 00's, but why Jeff Tremaine's sequel does improve on the former is because it attempts to have one eye a little more on entertaining for a cinematic audience; the first was only concerned with the low-fi stylistics of the TV show, and while this sequel doesn't lose that, it also throws in stunts that are clearly more thought out, and even a show stopping song & dance number to wrap proceedings up.
It's also funnier, on the whole, than the previous…
Watched with an old friend while high. I suggested titles such as The Holy Mountain, Under The Skin and Enter The Void, he wanted to go with this. He's bigger than me so he won.
What a wonderful time it was when you could go to a movie theater and see a man get tricked into gluing his friends' pubes to his face.
Sometimes it takes years to go out of your comfort zone and embrace something you've always avoided. I've never seen the first Jackass movie or the MTV show that inspired it, but I have however caught the odd episode of Viva La Bam, so when this film appeared in the early hours I thought I'd give it a go.
Let's put it this way, these guys are fucking maniacs. From Johnny Knoxville and Bam Margera to Steve-O and Ryan Dunn and the rest of the gang, the hospital bills for these guys must have been astronomical. Stitches, bruises, and objects stuck where they shouldn't be, it doesn't get much crazier than what we got here. I laughed till I almost…
cute boys in cute costumes doing stupid shit with a cool soundtrack. what's not to like?
THAT WAS INTENSE, REALLY INTENSE. WELL, NOT REALLY INTENSE, BUT PRETTY INTENSE.
You may call it crass, stupid, pointless, and juvenile. And you would be correct, but it is in all regards hilarious. It is truly an art form in itself, and is stripped down to the basics elements of comedy (somebody falling and getting hurt, or someone puking and farting). You have a right to think this is too low brow, but I have the right to tell you that you are wrong and this is some of the funniest material I have ever seen!
Johnny Knoxville gets hurt 2
There is no one on Earth that can tell me this isn't hilarious.
This sequel is not only better than the first feature version of their small screen stunts. It's also clearly put together by people with a love of movies, whether evident through the John Waters appearance - which is very in tone with the filmmaker's filmography - or in the wildly memorable show-stopping finale.
Sure, it's raunchy, yes it is mainly just a series of loose skits and pranks, but some of it is so silly we're entering Borat-territory on the laugh-o-meter, some more cringe-worthy than the entire Saw-franchise put together, but it is never ever boring.
And the heavy make-up candid camera pranks, out of which one character later got his own movie (Bad Grandpa) deserves some kind of award for excellence.
I love these dumbass movies so much.
I haven't laughed that hard for a long time.
paska mutta ihan viihdyttävä
