Movie Review:”Jackass:Number Two”

If you had told me a few years ago that there was a movie coming out that wasn’t really even a movie but rather a bunch of men getting paid to slingshot themselves around in shopping carts, go swimming with sharks while hooked to a fishing line (I mean literally, with a hook through his cheek), I would have said you were crazy! Well, ladies and gentlemen, not only was there a movie like this, but now there is a sequel. In “Jackass: Number Two” Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, Chris Pontius, Steve-O, Ryan Dunn and Jason “Wee Man” Acuna return to give us a second dose of their twisted humor and adventure. I never saw the first one, and even though I did actually enjoy parts of the second one, I can’t say there is a burning desire to ever watch anything like that again. While I can say that I did laugh during most of the movie, I also spent a lot of time hiding behind my hands while simultaneously trying to plug my ears to keep from hearing the constant gagging that became so familiar throughout this movie. Their stunts ranged from rolling down a hill in a monster truck tire, to shooting themselves into the sky on a giant red rocket.They ate horse manure while being egged on by the hip-hop group Three 6 Mafia. They dumped a bag of angry bees on their friends in a limo. They went “anaconda hunting” in big tub of rubber balls, and they did things I can’t even bring myself to write, let alone try to remember. “Jackass: Number Two” is perfect to take your mind off of anything. Who could think about their problems while Bam Margera is being cornered in locked caged by a very large and very dangerous cobra. Who wouldn’t enjoy five crazy men playing dodge ball in the dark with very large and heavy medicine balls? I know I did, and if a girl who went to see “Titanic” five times can enjoy this movie, you can too.
