Jackass: Number Two [Unrated Widescreen Version]
Region 1 USA/CA (
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.
- for extremely crude and dangerous stunts throughout, sexual content, nudity and language.

"[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."
New York Times
"[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
"[T]he heart of JACKASS -- the adolescent drive to bash body and soul into the symbolic brick wall of maturity -- remains pure."
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."
4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] string of witty, inventive, frankly insane skits....It's lewd, crude and painfully funny. Dangerously so."
"[T]hey are up to their same old tricks, stunts, pranks, etc. If you liked the original, you will love the sequel."
