Jackass 3D Review

Dave's Rating:


Body fluids in 3-D. You've been warned.

Who's In It: Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, Steve-O, Chris Pontius, Ryan Dunn, Preston Lacy, Dave England, Ehren McGhehey, Jason "Wee Man" Acuna

The Basics: [Includes tons of spoilers. Really gross ones too. Stop reading here if you can't deal.] A giant hand high-five-assaults unsuspecting office visitors, baseballs are delivered to crotches, jet engines pelt unhappy humans with tomatoes, buffaloes attack Johnny Knoxville, naked men are superglued to one another, sex toys are fired from cannons, guys run through a gauntlet of tasers and get electrocuted, a poop-filled Porta-Potty becomes a chamber of bungee horror, donkeys deliver kicks to the worst spot ever, balloons are inflated with farts, human sweat is consumed, sewage-filled puddles are jumped on tiny scooters, a hog eats an apple out of a guy's butt, a tooth is extracted with a speeding car, Bam pees on everyone and a diarrhea volcano erupts over a tiny town. All of this happens in 3-D and that's fantastic.

What's The Deal: There is no greater joy in recent cinema than watching the extreme and extremely disgusting, plot-free slapstick created and executed by this nine-member marauding gang of brilliantly idiotic man-children. It's pointless Dada comedy but it's also about how men work with each other. If the ultimate pleasure of male group bonding is the victorious feeling that comes when the weakest link backs down, gives up, throws up or runs screaming from the room while everyone else is doubled over with laughter, then this is a film series all about that weird kind of punch-you-in-the-gut affection. (And without that affection it just becomes The Human Centipede, so that's an important distinction to make. Meanwhile, if you see this one you can see that one because everything here is twice as nasty.)

It's All About Details: It's not just the parade of injury and abuse that makes these films hilarious. It's the extra stuff, like noticing that while Chris Pontius is being stung by scorpions all the other guys in the scene are wearing tiny plastic multi-colored cowboy hats, or that they took the time out to find vintage marching band uniforms to put on while being brutally butted by rams. That sort of thing. They didn't have to do that. But it's kind of like putting out the good towels and nice china for guests, that little extra effort at keeping the visual aesthetic at a highly refined level.

Be On The Lookout For: Cameos from Seann William Scott (trying to stay out of harm's way), Rip Taylor (really staying out of harm's way), Beavis and Butthead, Will Oldham, Mark Zupan from Murderball, several pro football players and skateboarders, Spike Jonze and the entire cast of Half Pint Brawlers in a great barfly fake-out scenario so wildly elaborate and choreographed that it would take another whole paragraph to describe.

Fun Jackass-themed Trick To Play On An Unsuspecting Person: Johnny Knoxville was just on The Martha Stewart Show promoting the movie and she didn't know a thing about the franchise, asking him if it was a children's film. This, of course, means that someone from her staff who feels really secure in their job should take her to see it. Try it at home on your own out-of-the-loop friend or family member, why don't you?

They movie was over the top hilarious, the 3d was surprisingly awesome, and the poop bungee looked so brutal... Also I think there should have been more "Rocky" moments.

My IQ is a solid 145 (tested numerous times), and to me there is nothing in this world funnier than someone really busting their ass or being humiliated in an extremely gross or painful manner. The Jackass crew are awesome!

Poop in 3-D. What else does any childish man need? See it, live it. Just don't brag about your falsely inflated IQ when you tell us about it.

If you didn't get the hint that you weren't going to like the movie after watching the first two than you people are the idiots for going and paying to see it. I think these movies are hilarious! I mean how many ways can one come up with to hurt or humiliate themselves!
