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.

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.

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.

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.
