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.
"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.
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.
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 like this movie so mucho
It's funny, disgusting, moronic and it's essentially the same crazy shit with the rest of the sequels. But watching Knoxville, Steve-o and the rest of the boys punish themselves for an hour and a half is still so entertaining. I'll always find myself coming back to this just for the nostalgia alone.
Watching this film, I recall the great moments in cinema history. The incredible opening tracking shot of Touch of Evil. Elliot flying his bicycle in E.T. The jump cut in 2001: A Space Odyssey. Then I see Steve-O stick a firecracker in his ass and I know that I've witnessed the greatest moment in the history of film.
chaos is comforting
Jackass: the 88-Minute Runtime
It's hard for me to suspend my disbelief for what should be the most "realistic" movie I've seen, simply because I know there has to be a crowd of about 30 or 40 people just off-screen the entire time (fire department, medics, lawyers with waivers, MTV representatives waiting to offer money in exchange for destroyed property, someone to make sure animals are not harmed, etc.).
I used to be a big Jackass fan back in the days, but seeing the film after all this years it lost some appeal for me. I don't know if it is because I am more mature and grown up now or I have been surfeited with youtube videos in the same kind.
I still find it entertaining and I even laughed at some stunts. The guys still make me laugh.
Definitely gotta watch this movie wicked late at night with your friends.
Pretty fuckin amazing that the people that would praise spike jonze would also hate jackass, he produced this you guys.
