For the second time, Johnny Knoxvillle and the Jackass crew produce a direct-to-video follow up to their theatrical film, on the premise that they had shot enough footage for two movies. Not quite. While this film is leaps and bounds better than the abyssmal Jackass 2.5, don't be fooled into thinking that it's non-stop hijinks. There is a lot of time dedicated to interviewing the Jackasses about how they came up with the gags, and how much they hurt.
As for the stunts and pranks themselves, it's equally hit and miss for the films 85 minute run time. There's quite a bit of funny stuff, but just as much that should've stayed on the cutting room floor. If you've seen Jackass 3D, then you will even have seen a few of these stunts already, as they were added during the closing credits of that movie. Still, I did laugh a good number of times. A particular favorite of mine is the boys making the most of the old "Diet Coke and Mentos" combination in a very small room.
On a side note, it's been speculated many times that several of the Jackass crew are gay. While they deny it, they don't do much to prove the rumors false. They revel in not only showing off their private parts, but not being shy about closely inspecting, and even touching each other. Yes Chris Pontius, we know that you love your penis. Yes Bam Margera, we know you like things shot into your ass. Yes Steve-O, you are a freak of nature, and if you ever come near me or my family, I will have you shot.
So don't go in expecting a gut buster on the level that the movies provided. Instead, this plays out like a very padded up episode of the tv show. Funny, sometimes very funny, but not a gut buster.
