Jackass: The Movie ★★ 2002 (R)

The ultimate criticproof movie. Those who love the TV show will also love the fact that these guys can swear and be as gross as they wanna be, and indulge in even bigger, dumber, if not always more elaborate stunts. Those who think the whole thing is stupid and childish will continue to think so. In case you don't know the drill, Johnny Knoxville and his crew perform homemade or made-up stunts to a) get laughs, b) get a reaction out of people, c) gross out bystanders, d) see if they can be done, and e) all of the above. Watch it to bring out your inner 12yearold with ADHD. 87m/C VHS, DVD . Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, Steve “SteveO” Glover, Chris Pontius, Ryan Dunn, Jason “Wee Man” Acuna; D: Jeff Tremaine; C: Dimitry Elyashkavich.
