WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
The JACKASS gang is back and they’re up to no good…again. Have you ever wondered what would happen if you chugged a gallon of milk? Stay tuned my friends, and this mystery will be revealed.
IS IT A GOOD MOVIE?
What can you say about a flick like JACKASS THE LOST TAPES. I’ve never found this show particularly amusing, despite the fact that I’m a huge prankster. A couple of my friends worshiped this show a few years back and as a result, I’ve personally been doused in flour, we’ve done all sorts of nasty things to buddies of ours in their sleep (like putting used cat litter in their mouth), and I’ve even done the ol “pour out half a beer and top it up with pee” trick more times than I like to admit. Sound a touch gross and over the top? Well that’s EXACTLY what you’ll get with this DVD, only these guys take the game to a whole new level. Does that make it entertaining? Not so much.

I thought the JACKASS movement evaporated with Johnny Knoxville’s career, but apparently they’re trying to resuscitate their flat-lined malarkey one last time. For those of you unfamiliar with this stuff, it’s pretty much “frat-boys gone wild” in every sense of the phrase. I will admit to a chuckle or two when viewing stuff like the bubble wrapped floating man-boat, the shock collars and nothing spells HILARIOUS like Party boy running around the streets of California in a spandex devil costume holding a sign that says, “Keep God out of California.” His forthcoming fight with some random dude (with the help of a shoe wielding prostitute) WAS rather funny.

Sadly, most of this stuff is God awful in its ridiculousness. Many people will not only find stuff like nose picking, barf omelets, taking a leak on someone in their sleep (why on earth any of these guys would dare sleep around one another is beyond me), and my personal favorite, taking a dump on a golf course and poking at it with sticks, highly revolting but mentally diminishing as well…unless of course, you’re a fan.

Sure, JACKASSS THE LOST TAPES reunites the world with Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Party Boy, Wee man and the rest of the crew, but is there really a demand for this nonsense anymore? Do people still give a rat’s ass about this crap? Personally, I would find it hard to believe if anyone did, but in all fairness, I’m sure JACKASS has just as many fans now as it ever did (I’ve always viewed this as something you either love or hate). I can’t see any of these “escapades” falling even remotely into new or fresh territory, as I didn’t even watch much of this show yet I still recognize half these things as being shown before and/or overused. I will say this about Knoxville though, he’s got balls taking that mace straight to the eyes; I’ve seen a three hundred pound bouncer cry like a baby after receiving a mild dose by the cops.
THE EXTRAS
“Hi, I’m Johnny Knoxville”: A series of JACKASS “show intros” featuring Johnny Knoxville (as well as random others) saying, “Hi, I’m Johnny Knoxville welcome to JACKASS,” followed by Knoxville doing something insanely stupid like kung fu kicking Santa Claus. Funny, I’ve always wanted to do that.

Credit Montages: A half hour more of various skits and interactions between the boys and random people met in the field of battle. Only on JACKASS will you see a group of grown men ask a kid for his dog’s poop. True story.

Jackassworld: If only there WAS such a place. Four more quick sketches that will probably make you laugh AND cry (or shake your head in bewilderment). Watching Knoxville try to get a mentally handicapped guy drunk is a little weird.

Trailers: Four trailers; two of which are JACKASS related as well as one for Nitro Circus S1 and one for Rob Drydek’s Fantasy Factory S1. I’ve never heard of either one, but Nitro Circus looks kinda cool.
FINAL DIAGNOSIS
JACKASS THE LOST TAPES feels like another shot of the “same ol, same ol” to me. How many times do you need to see people fall on their faces, attach animal appendages to parts of their bodies, play with excrement, eat their own puke and get tasered until it starts to get old? Unless you’re a DIE HARD fan, the "Lost Tapes" don’t need to be found.

Extra Tidbit: I met Wee-man a couple years back at my buddy’s club in Toronto. I’ve never seen a guy get away with grabbing more boobs and asses without getting slapped in the face or kicked in the nuts.
