Audience Reviews for Jackass 2.5
Mediocre film comprising from footage of Jackass 2 is nothing new or funny. The reason this footage didn't make it into the final film was because most of it wasn't funny, and should have been released as a sequel to the second film under the name Jackass 2.5. The stunts in this film are pretty forgettable and not really worth checking out. The first Jackass film was great, the stunts were insane, not too disgusting and actually were pretty original. But with this one, you can see early signs of the Jackass crew starting to lose its touch. As the franchise went on, it became more about gross out stunt than anything and there's nothing here to really give fans of the show any worthwhile viewing experience. I really don't see why this footage wasn't included in the deleted scenes section of the DVD. Released as a film, it's pretty pointless. As the fact that the stunts are very hit and miss, and tend to miss more times than succeed. I think it's too bad. With Jackass 2.5, this was where it got unfunny for me. The third film was decent, but it relied more on gross out humor than anything and it really didn't payoff. Stick with the first Jackass film and view the second film, but go into this one and the third film expecting a hit and miss affair. Jackass 2.5 would have worked better as a collection of extras instead of a release and you can clearly see why many stunts didn't make the second film, which was entertaining and fun.
Falls a bit short as compared to the hilarity of Jackass 1 and 2, but still very entertaining and fun to watch. I've always been a big fan of the Jackass gang though, so I love pretty much everything they've ever produced. Therefore, my rating for this is to be considered a bit more generous than that of the average joe.
I think it's more of a lost special features disc than actual movie. It does have some really funny skits, mainly Fat Man King Kong, but I don't think it should have been released separately. That being said, if you love the show and the movies it's completely worthwhile and necessary.
