Jackass: Number Two Reviews

November 23, 2006
[A] sporadically hilarious assortment of weapons-grade idiocy.
October 7, 2006
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 screams of laughter come fast and furious in this frat boy's fever dream of a circus sideshow.
September 25, 2006
Just like the Lord of the Rings, I can't wait for the third part of this trilogy.
September 22, 2006
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.

You have to marvel at the way these guys keep coming up with ingenious ways to hurt themselves.

The images burn into the retina like the spots you get from staring at the sun.

A solid hour-and-a-half, plus outtakes, of gratuitous violence and endless stupidity.

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.

...when seen with a rapt, rowdy audience, the film becomes...a joyful celebration of the depths of human degradation.

September 22, 2006
Just as outrageous as fans were hoping it would be.

True to its aim, Jackass 2 probably will leave fans more satisfied than the vast majority of films this year have left moviegoers.

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.

Yes, it contributes to the decline of Western civilization, but yes, it's funny.

September 21, 2006
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).

Whether you laugh, shriek or fight the urge to puke reveals as much about you as years of psychotherapy.

September 21, 2006
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?

September 21, 2006
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.
September 21, 2006
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.
September 21, 2006
Be forewarned, when you're not laughing out loud you could well be trying hard not to lose your lunch.

As merry pranksters they have no match, and as they age (Knoxville is 35 now), they only grow in appeal.
September 20, 2006
Even if you can't stomach (or stand) what they're up to, you still have to admit that these goons execute their gags exceptionally well.
