Jackass: The Movie
Do not attempt this at home.
Johnny Knoxville and his crazy friends appear on the big screen for the very first time in Jackass: The Movie. They wander around Japan in panda outfits, wreak havoc on a once civilized golf course, they even do stunts involving LIVE alligators, and so on. While Johnny Knoxvile and his pals put their life at risk, they are entertaining people at the same time. Get ready for Jackass: The Movie!!
Their just a bunch of cunts but thats why i like them.
If someone told me I'd be amused by a group of grown men shooting fireworks out of their ass and eating urine snow cones, I'd say they were crazy. But somehow it works. It's disgusting and juvenile, yes. But it's funny, damn it.
Picture the scene: It's your day off. The only one you'll have for a while thanks to some horrible shift placements at work. You decide to watch a film. But what should you chose? Sure, you've got some sitting around you haven't watched yet. You were going to rewatch Magnolia or There Will Be Blood at some point. But what do you go for? Probably the dumbest, most low-brow film in your collection.
And you know what, I bloody love it. I know I shouldn't. I know that it's a bunch of guys that thought filming themselves hurt each other, pooping, and shoving toy cars up their bums would be better than a real job, but it's so damn funny…
It's been a while since I last watched this, and I gotta say, since it's been probably 3 or 4 years, it was just hilarious. Still a great movie IMO, it was funny seeing them all a lot younger. Some have not aged well. Looking back at it now, I definitely think they were a little more tame though, compared to the sequels. It's probably my least favorite of the series as well, which is something I probably can never say about another series.
While it's really rough around the edges compared to the later installments, "Jackass: The Movie" still has some big laughs thanks to creative gags and a great camaraderie among the guys.
"This is the funniest film of 2002, whether uptight cinema snobs admit it or not."
That quote on the back of the DVD perfectly describes jackass. While it probably wasn't THE funniest movie of 2002 it is a great example of low brow humor that is done so effortlessly and expertly that it passes the into the realm of masterpiece.
But this is a movie about dicks, poop, and blood however.
The jackass films have always been a guilty pleasure of mine. They are incredibly stupid but they really know how to create REAL sources of humor. Laughter is the key to universal happiness, so if it takes a few Americans pooping on each other and wrecking golf carts to bring to world together, so be it.
But leave out the paper cut stunt.
That scene was the most awful, horrifying and cringeworthy scene I have ever seen. And that includes every horror movie I've seen.
Wasn't as good as I was hoping. I've never watched the TV show but friends who have always amuse me reciting the pranks Knoxville orchestrates. The movie wasn't as funny though. There were a lot of lame pranks in the movie. If they really set their mind to it, they could make a much better sequel. The puddle surfing/trolley impact was good. As were the pandas. And the bull horn at the golf course. But boring on the whole. And there were just too many naked men in this film.
Needed more in terms of segue and flow. Just as "all over the place" as the series. Nice opening sequence though.
So much puke, so much pain.
Tasteless masochistic trash, but for all it's disgusting, too-painful-too-watch-or-stomach moments, Knoxville's gang's antics are truly mesmerizing. Many segments miss the mark, but some hit the bullseye and how; party boy in Japan, toy car up the butt x-ray, and a visit to the loo section of a hardware store are particularly noteworthy. Squarely not recommended at the squeemish or the sensitive.
Jackass is probably the most distracting film to watch whilst screenwriting. But goddamn does it make less lonely.
This is not a movie; it is a long prank show; I enjoy it, but it is not a film.
Now that I'm not 14 anymore, Jackass doesn't have quite the same appeal. While I would agree that stupidity can be hilarious, I think I actually laughed at maybe four of the skits. I was never much of a fan of the gross out bits involving bodily fluids and the skit where they are giving each other paper cuts between their toes makes me feel physically sick. I always preferred when they are just annoying random people. The highlight is clearly still the Golf Course Air Horn.
However, I've bumped up my rating a little for the shear nostalgia of it. The aesthetics of Jackass take me back to a time when I played Tony Hawk's Underground and skateboarding and punk rock was considered cool by a small faction of high schoolers. And if my memory serves me right, the two sequels are funnier.
'I'm Johnny Knoxville, and welcome to Jackass!'
Jackass remains one of those things that fills the void of boredom with hilarious antics and some nauseating humour, leaving a hollowness that can slide into guilt. It looks like making it was a mixture of raucous fun and crippling terror, as everyone from the leading men to the cameramen are tormented, battered and driven to tears and vomit. It is disgusting and puerile, but it does a job in the same way a low-intelligence, mainstream comedy. Knoxville and co. manage to cover up their stupidity and cruelty with an undeniable charm, and present something with a hit-and-miss entertainment factor, but which also suffers from an uncinematic format spread over a movie's runtime.…
