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." - 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.
THAT WAS INTENSE, REALLY INTENSE. WELL, NOT REALLY INTENSE, BUT PRETTY INTENSE.
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?
Jackass is one of those movies when you think of daring someone to do something really stupid, gross or both but never actually do it, except these guys take it to the max and multiply that by 10. Such a messed up but funny movie about awesome people seeing how far they will go before someone gets seriously hurt, then healing up and doing more crazy stuff. If you can stand to see some crazy and gross stunts and want a laugh this movie is for you.

i love jackass. goodbye
Jackass Number Two earns it's musical number. Most movies don't. Certainly nothing with Will Ferrell or Steve Carrell. None of these guys can sing either. Even a little bit! Bam's a dick. Every time Ryan Dunn showed up without screaming in pain we flicked off the screen. I love these movies. Equal opportunity trolling. No one comes out clean. And since everyone's laughing, it's kind of touching. That's all I wanna say. Other than the movie's edited better than this review.
The second one is equally distracting, but epic. Disgusting. But epic. And distracting. Don't write to this.
This is not a movie; it is a long prank show; I enjoy it, but it is not a film.
'Please God, don't let there be a "Jackass 3".'
Though it would be a ludicrous stretch to suggest that any Jackass film has any class, it is possible the Jackass Number Two distinguishes itself for its ambition and its overall improvement on the first feature length entry. While Jackass The Movie suffers from a televisual premise and execution, from the opening stunt, there is something more cinematic about the sequel. Although the same problems of bittiness persist, there is a slightly better feel to the whole film, and the higher quality of production tempers the lapses into repetitiveness or tedium.
Without the imprecision of the first film or the outright horror of the third, Number Two manages to balance vomit-inducing…
Wow, I really have seen this movie an awful lot.
Jackass is completely indefensible but I just love it so much. I could watch any of the films or television episodes over and over.
