Looks like JACKASS: NUMBER TWO is as gross and insane as we all want it to be!!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. The word is JACKASS 2 makes the first film and preceding television series look like a Disney TV program. These reviews seem to confirm that. As retarded as these guys are, they are so incredibly fun to watch. I have my ticket in hand for next week. Can't wait! Beware of spoilers... these reviews aren't very indepth... but they do say what they feel. Enjoy!

Hey AICN, Long time reader, first review Alright, so I log on Myspace last night around 8 o clock and I see an ad for the Jackass Number Two screening in Chicago, so I found out more information and left for downtown (all you had to do was print your top 8 with the Black Carpet Jackass profile and that was your ticket, it was a free screening) Also, Knoxville and the gang were supposed to show up, but they didn't show, but who cares?! I was there for the movie, and it was great. If your a big of a Jackass fan as myself, you know what your in for. About an hour and a half of stupidly hilarious stunts and pranks. If you love the show and/or the first movie, you'll love this; it's one of those sequels that is better than the original. I don't want to ruin the pranks, but these guys have a death wish. Number Two is wayyy more extreme than anything on the show and the first movie. I guess I can list some stunts, so SPOILERS AHEAD *Pontius wraps his penis up to look like a rabbit and sticks it in a snake cage, and it bites *Bam gets dick(s) branded into his ass *Ehren gets pranked, I'm not ruining that, it's the best in the movie *Preston dresses up like Phil and switches places with him in bed and April's reaction is great *Old man balls is great, Knoxville in old man make up and has a fake pair of old man balls hanging out of his shorts and goes around town *Teeter totter in a bull pen, some pretty bad beatings from the bull Thats enough for now, if you want more details I can give more in the talkback. Bottom line - If you like the show or the movie, you will LOVE this movie. The stuns are insane, pranks are hilarious and the little transition clips are just fantastic. Overall, funniest movie of the year. But, hey, I'm a huge Jackass fan. If you use this, call me Cpt. Arnoldo

Here's the second review that is short and sweet. Well, maybe not sweet... might make your gorge rise a little, but it's certainly short.

Hey Harry, This my first time writng for AICN and I just wanted to say MySpace hosted a screening for the JACKASS: NUMBER TWO. Bam, Knoxville, and Jeff (the director) showed up. On towards the movie, it's fucking hilarious, better than the first. Grab a friend or two and see this fucker. SPOILERS YES Party Boy drinks horse jizz, yes there is a stampede at the beginning, and yes (Oscar winners) Three 6 Mafia are in it (And have a song in the end credits) . Did I mention Party Boy drinks cum? This is only a taste of what you'll see in NUMBER TWO. B Wood

    Jackass and Darwinism

    by Happyfat73

    Atter seeing the first one, I came out of the theatre and the first thing I saw was a bunch of kids riding down the car park ramp in a shopping trolley. The great thing about Jackass is that it promotes Darwinism. Stupid kids imitate dangerous pranks. Stupid kids get maimed or killed. Remaining Gene pool is smarter.

    Why Is Jackass popular. Makes no sense

    by Lovecraftfan

    I keep hearing its funny but everytime I see their movie or episodes from the TV show I just dont get it. Whats funny about retards doing stupid things. Its really a total mystery to me.

  • Sept. 14, 2006, 7:49 p.m. CST

    Could someone please tell me...

    by covenant

    ....why in God's name this stuff is popular? One positive thing about it, though--as Happyfat73 pointed out--this can only improve the gene pool.

    Jackas is popular because...

    by Happyfat73

    ...it generates a visceral, gut response from the audience. Whether you laugh, cringe or puke - its a physical reaction. It's a love / hate thing - there's no in between.It's the measuring stick for low brow entertainment, and personally, I love it.

    "does anyone like me yet?"

    by ephor

    This shit just reminds me of the family guy episode with the segue of Tom Green in a tutu sucking at a cow's teat (quote in subject). are we meant to be impressed that someone would do such stupid shit. I haven't seen the 1st movie but have seen some of the shows. I thought the pranks were good but the stunts ridiculous. I remember something about some guy being put in a burlap sack and hung over a fire...

    by Roguewriter

    I'm not thrilled about the horse-jizz gag... but watching Wee Man get ripped off the platform by his parachute in the ads already has me bellowing laughter every time I see it. Funny is funny. If these things were being done to unsuspecting people, maybe not so funny (and the public-outrageousness stunts don't amuse me nearly as much for that reason) but it's damned funny to watch Knoxville & Co. abuse themselves and each other. Folks who can't find the funny in the guys' effervescent zeal for life -- however painful it may be -- are just humorless shitballs who probably sit alone on the couch at parties and talk about their sciatica. Trying laughing at life once in awhile, y'all. You sure as hell aren't getting out alive by being all surly and grim.

    by brycemonkey

    Listening to those above you'd think they wear a monicle and smoking jacket. When was the last time the haters up there read a book, listened to classical music or went to an art exhibition? Probably too busy lapping up whatever reality show is on TV. If you have a problem with Jackass try thinking of it as 'performance art' that might make it easier to swallow (jizz!). See, lowbrow *can* be funny.

    Lovecraftfan: I agree

    by Barry Egan

    I love physical comedy, and I was told by everyone I know to watch Jackass. People told me I would love it. I just stared at the screen. After careful consideration I figured out why it doesn't work for me: It's funny when people fall down, it isn't funny when they do it on purpose. I was stunned to learn that the director of Adaptation was involved in it.

    All you motherfuckers are gonna pay. You are the ones who are ball-lickers. We're gonna fuck your mothers while you watch and cry like little bitches. Once we get to Hollywood and find those Miramax fucks who are making that movie, we're gonna make 'em eat our shit, then shit out our shit, then eat their shit which is made up of our shit that we made 'em eat. Then all you motherfucks are next. Seriously, though... calm the hell down, kids. So you don't get Jackass? Really? Ask me, that really says more about you than the show. You're fuckin' LAME. Probably the kind of kids who sat out and did their fucking geometry homework while everyone else played dodgeball in high school. Just sitting there, saying "What's the point? I don't get it." Well, I've got news for you... you never will. And, somehow, I doubt this is the only thing you'll probably never get, but that's another conversation, entirely.

    JACK-ASS 2: FORESKIN EDITION

    by Enter4None

    So sad to see that after the 1st Jackass movie this guys had to reprise their 15min of fame for fast cash, specially Knoxville who had the chance to have a C-list comedy movie career... Saw the promo clips the Jackass crew did for MTV Awards, they all just looked forced and tired, like a grade school friend desperate for attention... I mean look at Weeman, he is trying so hard to keep his fake smile and laughter that he forgets to fake the boredom and the deception of his eyes.

    The Allure of Crudeness Explained Vol. IV

    by Pantsickle

    First, I would like to begin by making it something exceptionally, notably and quotably clear; For those that "don't get it," that's fine. You're okay. There's very little wrong with you, and you'll in all probability lead normal, fulfilling lives and be somewhat happy in the process. And maybe after this, you still won't enjoy Jackass, but you'll "get it." For those that not only, "don't get it," but are horrified, disgusted, appalled, and offended on every concievable level, for those who think that Jackass is the lowest common social denominator and a prime example of behavior representing the most base and primitive level of our culture; something animalistic, something disgusting, something dangerous and uncivilized, homoerotic and crude, and even non-hygienic, but ultimately just plain idiotic, if this is your opinion and you are keeping a firm grip on that opinion, well, not only are absolutely right, you're SO right. AND you're fucking stunted. And probably an annoying person to be around with an abrasive or otherwise unlikable personality. In all probability, you have a grossly underdeveloped sense of what it is to be a normal male human being- i.e. pussy -and I'm sure in most of your cases are in complete want of everything from, well, let's just leave it at "a lot of stuff", so as not to get to personal. Now, please, let me explain. Sit down. Shut up. Jackass shows a group of guys, young men in the prime of life, engaged in a variety of "anti-social" behaviors. Right? They readily and even zealously involve themselves in situations that are at once dangerous, unhealthy, painful, percieved homosexual, risky, and downright bizarre. Why? "I don't get it." What's the answer? "This is social Darwanism. If these dumb people kill themselves doing dumb things, and more dumb people imitate them and in turn kill themselves, then smart people like me will remain to repopulate the planet with more smart people!" No, you're mistaken, here on several accounts. One mistake is, if every "stupid" person on earth were to die, right now, and the next few generations were spawned of only intelligent, rational people, it wouldn't matter. The risk-taking population would replenish itself within a generation. (Because we have an advantage over natural selection; We're only part animal. The rest of us is too smart, even when dumb, to let nature best us enough to matter.) The other mistake that you make is to think that your distaste of Jackass and similar phenomena stems from a superiority of some kind. Well, that's an eletist attitude. Hitler had one of those, and look where it got him. You won't even have the rise to power part first, or the do anything at all worth anything at all part first, so I'd humble up, a bit. Anyhow, there could be any number of foundations for your feelings, but being smarter is not one of them. Yes, here I have taken a small opportunity to personally attack a cross-section of you. You will never get laid and if you do, they will be ugly. If you have already succeeded, they were ugly. Any future qonquests will be ugly. End Attack. In the end, not only will desireable females nearly always choose a "Jackass" type over a someone that plays it safe and stays on a path well-worn safe instead of straying into the wild, other men will respect a "Jackass" type more than, well, whatever you are. Because of successful risk-taking, because of being daring, and because of a lack of fear of pretty much anything, even being called a homo. The fella that said "A bunch of apes trying to out-macho each other," was exactly right. And that's the deal, and that's the trick. So it has been for hundreds of thousands of years. People forget, no matter how hard we try, no matter how many manners we're taught, regardless of how nice of clothes we wear or how expensive and expansive our education is, no matter how much money we make and spend on shiny electronic things that cook our food and even fly us to the god forsaken moon, we're still animals. We still have primitive drives, and beastial tendencies. All of us. ALL OF YOU. Watching a bunch of guys getting back to that, verifying that; stripping away the rules and the cleanliness=godliness mentality, the fear of what other men and women of a more upright stature and gait and a more "good heavens! how beastial!" attitude think about a good-god-damned thing at all, and doing away with the usual caution and even the fear of death, and having a blast doing it- and admittedly, you gotta come out the other side alive, as in any situtation in life. It's about adventure, and actually living your life to a degree it was meant to be lived, and not letting life live you, like Hemingway or Thompson or Alger, and you should be thinking about living before you die as another at least partially wild animal on the planet Earth. Obviously, most of us can't get away with that extreme of behavior, so the Jackass guys do it for us. Like drinking horse cum, as all men are supposed to do, it's how the lord intended it. I'm surprised you didn't know that. Pontius drank horse cum for us so we didn't have to. He's like the Jesus of fucking disgusting. Well, folks, I doubt I'll be back. I heard the talkbacks were lame, and so far, yeah. They are. I have to go hang out with the cool kids. If they see me here, I'll be left out of the flagellation and cock-branding. Can you even leave messages this long?

    The Allure of Crudeness Explained Vol. X

    by Pantsickle

    I totally forgot something important; I'm not trying to sell this movie or my personal viewpoint to those who disagree with me. I don't want to make you think like me, or agree with me, or "get it." Just the opposite. Please fucking don't, actually. It would make me feel creepy and raped and dirty. I would prefer it if you kept your opinions and stayed exactly the way you are. Because you're wonderful, beautiful human beings, regardless of how you feel about anything. Unless you're pro-kidfucking, pro-retard fucking or murdering, pro-nazi, anti-italian, anti-negro, or anti-irish, or are zealous in your belief in any sort of religion. Other than that, live long and prosper, or whatever it is you young people are fond of saying to be hip, today. Also, I noticed plenty of things in my previous post that I hate and wish weren't there. Like the, -i.e. pussy- part? God I'm dumb. That's supposed to be -i.e. YOU'RE a pussy-, and there's other things, i before e problems and, ahh, but whatever. Summer is dead! Long live the summer! I hope you and I are all still alive and healthy and happy by the next one, and that we can all enjoy a billion dollars worth of shitty movies and all the horrible people making too much money to make and be in them. But if God wills it, we shall. Watch the skies! Watch the seas! Watch out in general; the farmer's almanac says that we're in for a harsh winter, maybe replete with more things blowing up and possibly even more things crashing into things and then blowing up. Running. Screaming. You know the drill. There's treachery afoot.

    There's nothing to get.

    by Barry Egan

    Jackass is humor that works on a totally visceral level. It's like seeing a person slip on a banana peel. You either think it's funny or you don't. There are no jokes involved, no wit to speak of. There is no subtext. Making it sound like people who don't find it funny don't get the joke is absurd -- there is no joke to get.

  • Sept. 16, 2006, 7:29 p.m. CST

    I Got Lots

    by Pantsickle

    Dude, Barry Egan, dude; Can a man not produce a rambling, mostly insane diatribe stuffed full of unevenly baked bunkacrud, mixed nearly from scratch and topped with a secret, old-world family recipe, consisting of four different flavors of subversive internal deconstruction, and seasoned just right to confuse the slow, fiercely provoke those with chronically jerky knees, admonish the smug, and entertain all of everyone else who would allow that last particular thing to happen to them, without you coming along and ruining it all with six simple sentences of good old reason? Bastard, Barry. Now be quiet, I'm hunting The Dumb... You can watch if you want. Or join in. If we're lucky, they didn't hear you, what with your wailing on about the Pro-Zionist Pyramid of the Pseudo-Jesus Demons, and...was that even you? But seriously, for all the weird garbage I espoused earlier, there really is a whole array of genuine underlaying themes and dynamics infused into jackass. If a person were so inclined, it would be possible to thoroughly dissect the show, minute by minute, show by show, crewmember by crewmember, and expose those dynamics. People probably even already have. I'm sure jackass has something to offer everyone for different reasons, except for, admittedly, enough of an element of the female sex, though occasionally even that. But not enough, no, not at all. Of course, the show is called jackass, not "jackbitch", or "jackgina", or "jackmeoff, please?", or, well, you get the idea. Yes, there is a highly simplistic, "object-hits-testicles, funny-or-not?" element, a major one, I'll give you that, but I disagree that there is no more than that to it. I've always been a fan of the show, but haven't really thought about its contents and what levels those contents work on until today, but I'm sure that there's more than one dimension. (on the show, also.) Some of what I mentioned earlier is actually crudely based on a real possibility or two of what dimensions those may be, as I see it. Think about it. But this isn't the fate of the universe, here; we're not mapping out the inside of God's mind. I don't think, anyway. Or maybe we are, it's hard for me to tell, really, at this point. That's it; seriously, I'm out. Until The Dumb once again arise from the depths of their badly decorated lairs, all adorned with posters of Napoleon Dynamite but also Deuce Bigelow or wrestlers and cartoony examples of different species of shits and farts and buds, their shelves sporting a few dusty Koontz epics, one of the Left Behind series and a magazine or two about astrology and horroscopes, but otherwise as completely empty as their festering brains. Soon, they will shamble up the street to McDonald's, then back to their already ketchup-encrusted keyboards in order to express themselves as poorly as is humanly possible while they massacre the English language like it was a pissing-his-pants General George Armstrong Custer getting his face cleaved open by the tomahawk of a particularily short-tempered brave. And wherever these damagers of language show their akward structuring and shockingly bad punctuation, or their absent and/or duplicated letters, I will be there. Waiting. To offer them my services of tutelage for free dollars a second and a guarantee that their command of the language will instantly improve tenfold or I'll fucking kill them. Hopefully after I get a nap and a snack. What's the deal with post length? I doubt I'll ever post even close to this length ever again (special circumstances, today, aside from the jackass topic), if ever at all, as AICN seems to be in a trouble of some sort, internal strife, Harry's apparent inability to hold his site together or whatever's going on- I am not in the loop -but what's the usual limit before the mods get the anger up inside of them? Or the posters? Can one write a short story or stream-of-conscience freakout? Will Jackass II be grosser than your scrotes? Ahh, fuck it....
