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…
"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.
The Good: The intro. Golf cart antics. The big cone. Ass kicked by girl. Night pandas. April's alligator. Bam's dad on the toilet. BMX tug-of-war. Golf course air horn. Butt x-ray.
The Bad: More misses than hits. The grossest and most juvenile of the three films.
The Bottom Line: The sequels are better than this. It's just amazing how after 25 episodes, three movies, and countless insane stunts, none of them died during filming.
I've seen this so many times, but it never fails to entertain! Still can't deal with the paper-cuts though!
Never seen Jackass before. Fairly funny and fast paced.
You know, I'm going to mark it down that I've seen this before, as several of the sketches seemed familiar, but I don't think I'd ever sat down and watched it start to finish. It was.. ok. Entertaining. Some sketches were obviously better than others.
There are a few stunts that fall a little flat in the humor category, but for the most part, Jackass: The Movie is an entertaining collection of reckless stunts that I don't have the balls to do.
I still enjoy this trash because I am a child, apparently.
Cool movie, back in the day when most of the stunts were real.
I thought it would be interesting to note that during filming in Tokyo, Spike Jonze (co-creator of Jackass) was married to Sofia Coppola. This experience could've led to her writing and later directing a little movie called "Lost in Translation", which is rumored to have characters based on Spike Jonze and Cameron Diaz (who worked with Jonze in Being John Malkovich).
So if you want to see what Scarlett Johansson's boyfriend (played by Giovanni Ribisi) was doing every time he went out in "Lost in Translation" while she stayed in the hotel all alone see "Jackass: The Movie".
Nada melhor que loucura insana pra se divertir
A recent interview with Johnny Knoxville on Marc Maron's podcast prompted me to revisit this film. 11 years later, it's still got moments of genius.
I'm not going to give a rating to this movie because it is not a movie. It's as much a movie as randomly clicking through youtube videos. That being said, it is still pretty fun, and, if you're in the right setting, will make you laugh.
So many jokes and tricks that You'll find at least one that will make you laugh.
