    The Jackass boys achieve true genius, however, when they take their penance public. Before stunned, inert onlookers, these skate-punk Situationists transform official zones of work and leisure -- office parks, golf courses, bowling alleys -- into arenas of dangerous stupidity to remind us that, in the end, we’re all just meat.

    One of the funniest films I’ve seen all year.
  3. Provokes a suspense halfway between comedy and horror. I'm not sure if I enjoyed myself, exactly, but I could hardly wait to see what I'd be appalled by next.

    Unfortunately I can't give this a thumbs-up or thumbs-down; I haven't yet developed an aesthetic that will accommodate a guy firing a bottle rocket from his ass.
  5. Like a documentary version of "Fight Club," shorn of social insight, intellectual pretension and cinematic interest. It also offers a supremely literal-minded version of slapstick.

    It's plotless, shapeless -- and yet, it must be admitted, not entirely humorless. Indeed, the more outrageous bits achieve a shock-you-into-laughter intensity of almost Dadaist proportions.
  7. This is the biggest lowdown, rotten, disgusting, depraved sideshow in the megaplex. Check your brains, your taste and your self-respect right over there with the bearded ticket taker.

    One of the funniest movies of all time. Don't listen to the critics. They are morons. I almost fell over watching this.

At times the things these guys do to themselvesWatching these guys pull off these hilarious stunts, pranks, and skits is an absolute blast. At times the things these guys do to themselves and each other can be disturbing, gross, and just plain lacking in intelligence, but it's consistently one of the funniest movies I've ever watched. I laughed through the entire thing even when it was making me cringe. Why these guys enjoy hurting themselves so much is beyond me. Even weirder is how the somehow manage to make it funny. All I know is that it is a laugh riot and therefore I can recommend it. Expand

Everyone will be blindsided by the humor in at least one of the Generally horrible, but with some outrageously original cinematic moments. Everyone will be blindsided by the humor in at least one of the skits. Told almost as a documentary about the hapless, it purports to claim the dumb must be tough, but its underlying message is that there is no limit to the dumbness of the tough. It is clever and inventive, but I don't consider it a movie of critical consequence just because it was released on film stock. The fact that it's generally offensive is completely besides trhe point. It's an assemblage of video clips, period. Expand
