[A] sporadically hilarious assortment of weapons-grade idiocy.

I couldn't look away, and neither could anyone else in the audience I saw the movie with. We hooted and hollered at the screen, captured by a single involuntary impulse.

The first half hour was hilarious. The second half hour got repetitious and tedious.

To call the humor sophomoric would be to overstate its sophistication. Call it infantile, and you'll be much closer to the mark. But it's hard to deny that many of the more outrageous bits have an exhilaratingly potent, shock-you-into-guffawing impact.

One of the more positive things I can say about JNT is that it serves the function of a crash diet: After seeing it, you will not want to eat again for a very, very long time.

I don't recall being in physical pain from laughing (which happened a couple of times during the first film), but the sequel still delivers what it promises. This is the Godfather II of tasteless prank films.

Though I understand that the film is intent on being no. 1 in no. 2, it is not ever necessary to show someone making doody on camera, thanks.

Only adolescent boys -- the movie's target audience, despite a well-earned R rating -- will appreciate the most extreme gross-out gags, none of which can be described in a family newspaper.

If the judges stuck hooks in the American Idol contestants and used them for bait each week, even I would have to tune in occasionally.

The double feat of Jackass is that it weds the obviously juvenile with the arrestingly profound. The boys of Delta Kappa Epsilon and their TAs can watch this movie in the same theater.

Debased, infantile and reckless in the extreme, this compendium of body bravado and malfunction makes for some of the most fearless, liberated and cathartic comedy in modern movies.

The new dose of Jackass is way dumber, grosser and gayer (there are more things shoved up male butts than a cowboy could dream of up on Brokeback Mountain, and the guys even sing a homo anthem from La Cage aux folles).

I don't know what to say about Jackass: Number Two. What is there to say, after all, about a 95-minute foray into feces, intestinal gas, horse semen and a beer funnel inserted into a body cavity that's quite obviously not someone's mouth?

Of course these capers do hurt and the frisson of real danger is always there. But the performers understand the simple integrity of a slapstick gag, and they're prepared to suffer for its entertainment value.

One must admit, however grudgingly, that there's a kind of warped integrity in their compulsion to keep topping each wretched stunt -- sometimes within the same stunt.

You have to admire the fact that, for these guys, 'anything for a laugh' really means anything. And for all the moronic behavior, there are also some inspired dadaist moments.
