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.
"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.
I've seen this so many times, but it never fails to entertain! Still can't deal with the paper-cuts though!
AMUSING CRAZY JACKASSES.
Like their predecessors “Beavis and Butthead” and “South Park,” everyone knew it was just a matter of time before the popular MTV show “Jackass” was turned into a film. There was too much bad language and gross content for these guys to not make a movie without network TV restrictions. Also, after the huge success Spike Jonze (one of the show’s creators) had with Being John Malkovich, it is easy to see how this movie got made.
Understand, however, that I use the term “movie” in the very loosest sense possible. It has no semblance of plot, characters, or progression. It is merely a compilation of skits, exactly like the show. I certainly support that idea, as to try and…
Say what you want but these guys have some fuckin' balls. I know because I saw them get electrocuted.
I don't know why anyone would do any of these things, but it sure is hilarious watching other people do it!
Although I was not a fan of the show on MTV this movie made me laugh harder at the theater than any other movie I had seen up until that point.
Shamefully I admit to liking the TV stuff they do, and the film whilst not hugely upping the ante stakes does save a lot of it's most effective and entertaining stunts for this.
Not ashamed: I still find it hysterical.
I remember this being funnier but its really not that funny anymore, I feel like jackass 2/jackass 3 were funnier.. idk
