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.
"It's a toy car"
Completely devoid of any plot, and occasionally really misses the mark, but watching these guys actually really perform these stunts is a ridiculously entertaining treat and an often pretty gut - busting hilarious one. It runs short enough that it manages to not overstay its welcome even when some of it might get a little too obnoxious. These guys are clearly best buds having a blast being insane and it makes for all the more fun of a watch.
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.
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.
I watched this on Sunday instead of studying for my health science exam, so yeah it was a good day
Ahh Jackass, that staple of my early teenage years.
Nowadays I definitely cringe at some of their pranks and this movie had some of those and at the same time, it's not that special since unlike the second movie (the first I ever watched), only few of the budget went to more elaborate stuff and this definitely felt like a longer regular episode. Yet despite that, I still had fun watching this, as a guilty pleasure or otherwise. The toy car scene was one of the highlights (you know which one) and one of my favorite parts was the one where four of the members were dresssed in Panda fuirsuits going around doing hynjiks over Tokyo.
Overall, maybe it's a guilty pleasure, but it's fun if you don't have much to do on a weekend sunday evening.
Johnny Knoxville gets hurt
It is what it is.
Still holds up well after almost 15 years.
Golf Carts kills me every time.
The toy car sequence featuring Ryan Dunn (RIP) is quite possibly the funniest moment in any 2002-film.
An undemanding movie to put on. I admit I did find some of the ideas funny. The toilet display and golf course scenes for example. You could call it a greatest hits compilation of what these guys do. I had to look away when they did paper cuts between toes and fingers, yeeks! Outstays its welcome by about half an hour. For me, this type of comedy is better suited for the length of a TV episode.
It was funny at the time but unlike the stars of the movie I have grown out of the fascination of sticking foreign objects up my bumhole and finding it funny.
