Editors Note
Note Born of the world of underground skateboard videos--where viewers watch more for the accidents than for the tricks--JACKASS began as an MTV series before becoming a big-screen sensation in 2002. Four years on, Johnny Knoxville is a movie star, and cohorts Bam Margera, Chris Pontius, and Steve-O have started successful franchises. One would think that they have moved on---yet here they are, back for more stunts and pranks involving defecation, ejaculation, and pubic hair, and ranging from the disgusting to the ridiculous.^Like its predecessor, undoubtedly--in relation to its budget--one of the most profitable studio films in history, JACKASS: NUMBER TWO is merely a series of wince-inducing stunts. These often result in injury--filmed with a handheld camcorder. Highlights this time around include a four-person teeter-totter 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 these are just the beginning. There are also puncture wounds, the guys endlessly laughing at one another's injuries, and more male nudity than one normally sees in a mainstream film (including a surplus of scarred and bruised bottoms). JACKASS: NUMBER TWO is bookended by two beautifully filmed 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 Berkely musical number. These sequences up the ante a little bit from the first installment, and though JACKASS TWO certainly isn't for everyone, it remains the best and safest way to see a guy blasted into a lake in a rocket-fueled wheelchair.
Reviews
New York Times "[T]oo exhilarating to spoil....This compendium of body bravado and malfunction makes for some of the most fearless, liberated and cathartic comedy in modern movies." 09/22/2006 p.E8
Entertainment Weekly "[I]t will still double a lot of people over with big laughs and grossed-out-disbleief....These goons execute their gags exceptionally well." -- Grade: B 09/29/2006 p.58
Rolling Stone "[T]he heart of JACKASS -- the adolescent drive to bash body and soul into the symbolic brick wall of maturity -- remains pure." 10/05/2006 p.78
Ultimate DVD 4 stars out of 5 -- "There are elaborate pranks...The set-up is careful and the execution shows an expert grasp of comedic rhythms....Forget your morals and just enjoy the ride." 10/01/2006 p.138
Total Film 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] string of witty, inventive, frankly insane skits....It's lewd, crude and painfully funny. Dangerously so." 12/01/2006 p.42
Widescreen Review "[T]hey are up to their same old tricks, stunts, pranks, etc. If you liked the original, you will love the sequel." 02/01/2007 p.67

Review The new Jackass follows the formula of the first Jackass: a bunch of doofuses, led by Johnny Knoxville, perform extremely dangerous (and often stupid) stunts, piss people off, and do nasty things with poop and other bodily excretions. In this installment, Chris Pontius dresses up his penis in a mouse costume and presents it to a hungry snake. Bam Magera gets branded with a cattle prod - and the brand is shaped like an erect penis...It goes without saying that Jackass isn't for everybody, but for those of us who find this sort of stuff entertaining and funny, Jackass: Number Two will gross you out, shock you, and make you laugh your (jack)ass off. Which is just what you expected, right?

Review The first feature spun from MTV's notorious "Jackass" was described in these pages as "quite possibly the most exuberantly distasteful hodgepodge of beery anarchy and death-wishing irresponsibility ever unleashed by a major Hollywood distrib." But when it comes to plumbing new depths of ingeniously egregious gross-out humor, "jackass the movie" was an under-achiever compared to its inevitable sequel, the ever-so-aptly titled "jackass number two." This stunningly shameless follow-up to the 2002 theatrical sleeper (and homdevid mega-seller) offers more of the same -- a lot more -- while repeatedly upping the ante in terms of offensiveness.

Quotes
Josh Rosenblatt, Austin Chronicle Just the kind of vicarious excitement for which the movies were invented.
Michael Rechtshaffen, The Hollywood Reporter ...a sequel that's even wilder, funnier, extra-depraved and more gag-inducing...
Nathan Lee, The New York Times ...some of the most fearless, liberated and cathartic comedy in modern movies.
