Quality-wise, this is a step up from the show but not quite as slick as the later instalments. From skit to skit I find myself wondering if it's better than the show, because it's unrestrained, or worse because they become much more foul. Perhaps I'm just crankier than I was in high school. Certainly not the best of the three (or more?) Jackass movies, but still gave me a hell of a lot more laughs than I expected.
The idea of getting a shit camera and fucking around with buddies for no purpose, evokes images and memories of my youth.
Also, after all these years i still give a physical reaction to many of the scenes, which for me makes it a great film experience.
