WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
Grown men travel around and do stupid stunts and pranks.
IS IT A GOOD MOVIE?
Watching this set made me feel old. Like maybe Im missing a joke that the younger generation got a while ago. I promised myself I would never turn into that guy. You know the one Im talking about; the guy who claims to be too sophisticated to laugh at stupid jokes and childish stunts and sits back smoking a pipe and talking in a faux British accent. At least thats how I always pictured him.

Well, something happened on my way to adulthood. Somewhere along the line I grew up and stopped understanding how a handful of grown men running around hurting themselves is funny. The sad thing is, there is some comedic talent hidden in between all the childish humor. I found it highly amusing any time they did practical pranks on unsuspecting citizens. Hurting a baby is funny no matter how old you are.

I realize there are people out there that think JACKASS is the greatest thing going. I understand they made a movie and the concept launched Johnny Knoxville into stardom. Unfortunately, I dont get it. For the most part, it just isnt funny or even clever. However, maybe I just barely missed the age cutoff to appreciate it.
THE EXTRAS
Commentary with the cast. Virtually everyone that ever had anything to do with JACKASS showed up for this commentary. Shockingly, you wont find any insightful comments on this track. Instead, youll find that its too congested and the guys arent even close to being funny without the opportunity of physical pain.
FINAL DIAGNOSIS
Well ole chaps, I must be running along to a game of footy and then a spot of tea so I cant make time for JACKASS. See, its much better being snooty AND British.
