Johnny Knoxville (Dukes of Hazzard), Bam Margera (TV’s Viva La Bam), Steve-O (TV’s Wildboyz), John “Wee Man” Acuna (Grind) and the rest of the crew are back for more groan-worthy, stomach-churning and utterly ridiculous antics in Jackass Number Two. And, God help us, we actually enjoyed it. Hey, it’s not like you don’t have your own guilty pleasures too, right?
For those of you who don’t know what Jackass is about, in a nutshell, a group of loonies films themselves performing all sorts of dangerous and downright moronic stunts (like launching themselves off a pier on a rocket powered wheelchair or scarring their asses with a phallic-shaped branding iron).
Let’s face it, folks: If you’re walking into this expecting anything but a brainless, fecal-filled, gross-out fest, then you can’t really blame anyone for the 95 minutes of your life you’re never going to get back again. Knoxville and gang have concocted stunts that are at least on par with the crew’s previous outings, although some of the skits, like the one with the naked old lady, get old pretty quickly. Nevertheless, most of it is laugh-out-loud nonsense that comes at you rapidly.
If you’re already a fan, this one’s for you. If you’re even the least bit squeamish and would rather spend your time doing something more productive than watching a man drink horse semen (we swear, we are not making up this crap), then we’d suggest not even touching this one with a ten-foot pole.
You’ll Dig Jackass Number Two if you…:
– Dare your friends to do stupid s***, then secretly film them and post the video on YouTube because it seems like “a funny thing to do at the time.”
– Visit your doctor and the first thing he says to you is, “Oh, now what?”
– Are missing your two front teeth—and aren’t a kid or senior citizen.
– Have a strange fixation with ranch animals.
