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…
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.
"That was intense. Really intense. Well, not really intense. But pretty intense." - Chris Pontius
Yeah, so Bunny the Lifeguard sums up this sequel pretty well. Definitely a step up from the first in terms of both the stunts and the laughs. Rather than playing hidden camera pranks on the general public (they probably got a little too famous to carry on doing that), they instead turn to messing on each other, and crafting some pretty impressive sets to destroy, and they look like they're having a ball whilst doing it. You really can tell that this is just a bunch of guys having a great time, and they're making a shitload of money to do it.
This is definitely a step up from Jackass The Movie. The segments were more consistently funny, I laughed harder and it seemed they thought of it in more cinematic terms.
Easily the best stunt and the one I laughed longest and hardest at was the Valentine's Day fan letter.
Who knew a series of films purely featuring a group of brain-dead fools trying to find inventive ways of hurting themselves could be so absolutely fantastic?
In an attempt of, verbally, being just as crude and insulting as the show is physically, I will stand comfortably alongside the movie critic who called this “the Godfather Part 2 of tasteless prank films”. This tops the first film in every way, and it is a natural extension of what we already know the Jackass-crew for. It is basically a bunch of Jackasses acting dumb and rude – but with a bigger pile of money! The great thing is, though, that the film never feels overly ambitious or forced, because you never truly feel that the Jackass guys are any less themselves.
They don’t give a f*ck if there is a studio depending on them or not, or if…
Peddling anarchic, erratic folk troublemaking, the Jackass series hasn't always known what to do with itself. 2000-2002 was the original TV series. 2002's original film was rough, just kind of wrapping up the TV show. JACKASS: NUMBER TWO is the first proper film, and it's pretty funny and interesting for numbskulls or whatever. I liked the medicine ball dodgeball in the dark.
Like the other ones. It's really fun.
Not much different from the first one. Took off half a star as it crossed over the line from funny to wince inducing. I don't mind seeing people "muck about" but eating shit, drinking horse jizz, and leeches on eyeballs don't do it for me.
Extremely enjoyable and so much fun to watch!
Well it was better then the first one
Auch gut aber irgendwie waren die Sachen nicht so krass wie im ersten Teil.
Stupid and hilarious. Great soundtrack.
