Jackass: Number Two

| September 24, 2006

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again–those Jackass boys are fucking insane. The stuff they do in this flick blows everything they’ve ever done out of the water, and then some. But God, is it funny. I haven’t laughed this hard since the first Jackass movie.
There’s no need for a setup here; everyone on God’s green Earth knows what Jackass is all about now. The movie is structured exactly like their first feature, but with a bigger budget, which means they take all their antics up about 10 notches. To put it bluntly, if you don’t find different forms of pain humorous, it may be best to skip this flick. Let me put it another way–in the opening scene, one of the guys sticks his dick through a hole of a snake pit and leaves it there until the snake latches on. Yeah. If you’re turned off by this, then stay the hell away from Number Two. But, if you’re like me and find that hilarious, then you’re bound to love what the gang has in store this time around. They attach themselves to giant rockets and launch them. They chug beer through their assholes and plunge it back out. They wrestle anacondas and bungee jump off fat people and partake in bullfights. And almost every prank or bit in the movie works to a hilarious degree. If you’re ever in search of proof for the existence of God, watch this flick and see what humans can survive.
However, just like the first film, there are some gags (literally) that aren’t funny at all, just tough to stomach. For instance, they jack off a horse and drink the semen. They put leeches on their eyeballs. They even shave their pubic hair and convince a fellow friend that the hair is for a beard he must wear for a disguise. There’s enough bare male ass, dick and taint in the flick to satisfy George Takei. Some of this stuff isn’t funny, just fucking nasty. And why, oh why do they think we want to see someone throwing up? More people throw up in this movie than the entire audience that sat through The Da Vinci Code. Vomiting isn’t funny and it never will be.
As the film is broken off into dozens of little sections for each prank, it’s difficult to remember what all went on. There’s not that much I can talk about in this review. It’s definitely one of those movies you need to experience for yourself. If it’s possible to die from laughter, then kiss your sweet ass goodbye before walking into this flick. If you dig the Jackass boys, then you’ll embrace every minute of it. But if you have a weak stomach, despise the first flick and curse the lives of everyone involved, it may be best to sit this one out.
