For the JACKASS completist two films that celebrate mans brazen stupidity in the face of mortal danger. JACKASS THE MOVIE may go down in history as the most irresponsible outrageous footage ever to be released by a major Hollywood studio. Based on the MTV show of the same name creators and co-producers Jeff Tremaine Johnny Knoxville and Spike Jonze stretch their surprisingly successful concept into a feature-length outing. Entering a rental car in a demolition derby snorting wasabi eating a urine-soaked ice-cream cone self-inflicting paper cuts and using a stores display toilet are just a few of the increasingly obscene antics that unfurl at a relentless pace. A large portion of the footage finds the pranksters in Japan dressing up in outlandish outfits and wreaking havoc on the unsuspecting locals. As incredible as it sounds JACKASS NUMBER TWO is one of the most profitable studio films in history (at least relative to its budget). Highlights this time around include a four-person seesaw in the middle of a bull ring Knoxville Pontius and Margera being blasted with riot control pellets fellow skate video alumnus Spike Jonze in elderly-woman makeup losing his clothing in public and Knoxville blasting off on the outside of a rocket. And thats just for starters. NUMBER TWO gets its twisted sadistic kicks out of the actors sustaining puncture wounds and other injuries to their persons and more male nudity than one normally sees in a mainstream release (including a surplus of scarred and bruised bottoms). The film is bookended by two beautifully shot sequences--first the gang does a jaw-dropping running of the bulls down a suburban street. Then (and nothing is being spoiled here) the film concludes with an elaborate Busby Berkeley musical number. Love it or loathe it JACKASS represents a new breed of slapstick entertainment for the 21st Century incorporating the modern worlds fascination with reality television and obsession with disaster into
