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.
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.…
So….Jackass. How the fuck do you review Jackass?
Plotless, pointless, dumb, grotesque, insulting, mean-spirited, and infantile? Yep. Funny? You bet. Does it make your life a little worse knowing that there are people out there who do such disgusting, antisocial things to one another for your amusement? Yep. Does such knowledge also make your life better? Yep again. Is the world a worse place for my having watched Jackass: The Movie? Probably. But does it really matter? Not a bit.
A quick questionnaire:

no es una peli muy ina pero me encanta este tipo de comedia cruda
Can you really talk about this film as a film? It is truly an extension of the TV series, and is bound to be enjoyed by those who are fans of it. There is not a whole lot to the film; some guys do a bunch of stunts and pranks on other people (including themselves and each other). Some are funnier than others - a standout is where they hide in bushes on a golf course blowing air horns at golfers.
Suffice to say, it had be laughing really loudly in many parts so it gets a tad of a higher rating than would be diplomatically issued. Much of the time, the crew generally seem to be enjoying themselves and having a laugh. It either works for you or doesn't.
Well it's not really a film, is it? Let's just get that out the way from the very beginning. Jackass: The Movie can only nominally be referred to as such given it exists on the big screen, but Jeff Tremaine's 'film' is simply an extension of the TV show writ large - it's filmed the same way, often with low-fi hidden camera work, night vision or grainy footage, given a great many of the stunts the team pull are practical jokes they don't want to let people in on (or so it would seem). The only real difference is that what Johnny Knoxville & co are up to is bigger than before, pushing themselves to more extreme limits to fit the…
