WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
The JACKASS crew step it up a notch, participating in some of the craziest/grossest stunts you'll ever see.
IS IT A GOOD MOVIE?
I've struck a dilemma. I'm not sure how to review JACKASS NUMBER TWO whilst retaining my dignity. Lucky for me, I don't have that much dignity to retain. But as a warning for people that do, just know that you might hate yourself for how much you'll be laughing during this movie. It's outrageous, obnoxious, disgusting, juvenile, and at times borderline retarded... but it's also a complete riot and the perfect film to watch with your "brosephs".

I'm not gonna try to convince people who are predisposed to disliking JACKASS to give it a chance. Reason being, if you even have to be told to give it a chance, you probably won't like it. This is sketch-based movie/documentary(?) about a bunch of idiotic (and probably clinically insane) dudes doing unbelievably dangerous and sickening stunts for our enjoyment. There's no logic or reason behind any of it, except for maybe what Dunn says halfway through the production... "Because it's funny." And it really, really is. By the time the end credits were finished rolling, my entire body was aching due to how hard I was laughing. I was also to the point where I had nearly thrown up about four times. Even if you don't like the Jackass crew, you gotta give 'em credit - they know how to push it to the max. The first JACKASS seems like child-play compared to some of the stuff here...
  • The Jackass gang gets charged by bulls.
  • Steve-O puts a fish hook through his cheek and acts as bait for dozens of sharks.
  • Knoxville launches himself on a rocket (and almost dies).
  • Chris Pontius drinks horse semen (to which I actually had to close my eyes).
  • Bees get let loose inside a limousine, with unsuspecting Jackass members locked inside.
  • Hundreds of metal balls get launched with incredible speed at Bam, Knoxville, and Dunn.
  • Pontius has a snake chomp on his... err... you know...
  • Steve-O attaches a leech to his eyeball.
  • And tons more...
Strangely enough though, the real pleasure of JACKASS is not so much the stunts and gags, but the crew itself. Despite being assholes, Knoxville and co. are a really entertaining group of people. Half the time it's their reactions and comments that make the wild stunts just so damn hilarious. The only annoying member of the gang is Bam Margera, but even he's taken care of this time around (as all of his "friends" make his life a living hell). In fact, he cries three times during the film. That alone should give you a pretty good indication of how crazy JACKASS NUMBER TWO gets.
THE EXTRAS
Fans of JACKASS rejoice. Once again, we get an absolutely filled disc of cut segments and other goodies.

As for what's UNRATED... not a whole lot. The only two differences I noticed were an extra scene involving Dave England putting a leech on his balls and the lack of a censor bar when Pontius drinks the horse semen.

NOTE: One issue, however, regards the Don Vito footage that was seen in the trailer. Well, it's not here. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Audio Commentary (with cast/crew): The only person who's noticeably absent from this chaotic (but very entertaining) track is Bam Margera. The rest of the guys spend their time laughing it up, adding some backstory on the sketches, and giving a little insight behind issues you don't see get addressed in the movie (like, say, how injured one of the guys got from something seemingly small).

The Making of Jackass Number Two (29:58): A surprisingly interesting and informative look at how the JACKASS sequel came to fruition. Aside from interviews, there's also plenty of behind the scenes footage (obviously) and examples of sketch preparation. Definitely worth watching.

Unrated Additional Segments (5:51): This is pretty much just a collection of footage (7 scenes, to be exact) involving male nudity. Fun.

Deleted Scenes (15:59): This section includes unseen footage regarding stunts that were in the movie. Basically, it features more of the same hilarity. Watch all 16 of 'em.

Additional Segments (27:54): There are 29 extra stunts and gags, all of which are worth watching. Some of it is less hardcore than what the actual movie featured, but that's to be expected. Besides, it's still hilarious.

Outtakes (8:00): These are mostly bloopers of the gang trying to introduce sketches but failing because they're either laughing or being messed with. Funny.

Also included on the disc are a Music Video (entitled "Karazy", with Chris Pontius / Big Nasty), the Theatrical Trailer, two Unrated VMA Spots, a Photo Gallery, and 4 Previews.
FINAL DIAGNOSIS
JACKASS NUMBER TWO is an hour and thirty minutes of not just laughter, but jaw-aching, gut-busting hilarity. I could try to justify my love for it on a more intellectual scale, saying something along the lines of, "It's fascinating to watch people test the limits and abilities of human life", but that'd just be bullshit. Honestly, the movie's funny for exactly the reasons you'd think. There's something spectacularly amusing about watching insane assholes do the most extreme shit ever, laughing about it afterwards, and then coming back for more.
