  1. 100
    Comedy, like most everything else, is subjective, and this may be the greatest example out there of "getting it" or not. If you thought the first movie, the original TV show, the Three Stooges, or "Football in the Groin," was funny, chances are ÔÇťackass: Number Two is right up your alley.
  2. 90
    Debased, infantile and reckless in the extreme, this compendium of body bravado and malfunction makes for some of the most fearless, liberated and cathartic comedy in modern movies.
  3. 80
    As merry pranksters they have no match, and as they age (Knoxville is 35 now), they only grow in appeal. As they proudly hurl their tattooed (by ink and battle scars) bodies into harm's way, a devilish glint in their eyes, it's as if they've discovered the fountain of youth, and its name is Jackass.
  4. 70
    Parts of this are screamingly funny, other parts downright stomach turning, but you have to admire the fact that, for these guys, "anything for a laugh" really means anything. And for all the moronic behavior, there are also some inspired dadaist moments.
  5. 70
    Part of what makes "ackass Number Two so frighteningly watchable -- even against your better judgment -- is the way the guys delight in one another's bumps, bangs and bruisings: First, they feel one another's pain; then they laugh like hell.
  6. The sequel is a dizzying succession of pranks, Candid Camera-like sketches, and, that old crowd-pleaser, the boys actively courting their own grievous harm. This is what you get when a generation grows up watching far too many "Roadrunner" cartoons while sitting on the couch eating bowl after bowl of Lucky Charms.

    There's no plot here; like the MTV show that spawned it, this movie is just a progression of increasingly disgusting and/or dangerous stunts.

    I loved the show, and I loved the movie. Catches you off guard, brilliant stupidity, experiments in social interaction...I love it. The only stuff that made me really cringe was the choreographed beginning and ending of the movie- that was pretty dumb. But some of the clips totally made up for it. Expand

    Brilliant. One of the best comedies in ages because it distills the genre into its most basic parts and cuts all of the crap out. It's just guys being dumb, but that's why it is funny. Expand

    Achieves what it is supposed to achieve. Although, you can't help but feel like you

    The stunts and the things they did made me hold my balls and cover my eyes. It was a good movie though other than walking out of the movie and feeling like you did all YOU actually drank sperm and everything. Not for the faint of brains my friends. Expand

    At times the members of the crew cross the line between brave and histerical into plain stupid and at times even shameful. I would lose respect for a friend if they did a handful of the things in this movie. Dont get me wrong. At times the movie is hilarious, but I rember when I was still a kid and the show aired I dreamt about being part of their team. Maybe I'm older but more importantly I've seen the second movie and I wouldnt hang out with these guys for a week for a million dollars. Expand

    The most inane, preposterous, pointless, over-hyped and unfunny movie I've seen in a long time. Even if you don't try to take it seriously you can't find any humour present here. At least if you think is funny watching grown men behaving like they were 5 years old, this film is not for you. Expand
