it's hard to rate this like a regular movie. there is something fundamentally funny about this, but it's also amazing just to think of how close these guys much actually be. to continue being friends with each other after doing these things to each other, or being comfortable enough with someone to try to catch a ball in your mouth that was hit off your friend's penis... true friendship.
I've always had a bit of a soft-spot for films like these, especially the "Jackass" series, as I went to see each one as they came out. It is what it is. We all know what the movie is going to be about, and what to expect. It's good for what it is, funny and at moments utterly disgusting. Which is what we all want from Johnny and the boys.
Watched JACKASS 3-D (minus the "D") last night. Warning: prepare to gag during the "Sweatsuit Cocktail" gag with Preston Lacy and Steve-O. Otherwise, I laughed my jackass off and felt this movie was the perfect way to get in touch with my "inner teenager" -- very much looking forward to JACKASS 3.5!!! :)
A film about the ravages of time turns out to be an endurance test -- like being married to your high school sweetheart, like driving on EDSA during the day, like eating 50 eggs, like being poor. When Steve-O said, "Why am I Steve-O?" there wasn't a dry eye in the house.
