Film 2 in the “Random Movie Roulette” is 2002’s “Jackass: The Movie”. What started out as a tv show on MTV (back when MTV was fun to watch) back in 2000 turned into four movies and two spin-off shows, Wildboyz and Viva La Bam. All three shows are something I watched a lot of when I was young. In this review, I’m looking at the first of the films they released, “Jackass: The Movie”. Released in 2002 and directed by Jeff Tremaine, who currently directs pranks for the WWE for a show called “Swerved”, and staring The Jackass Crew, this film is basically a longer version of the tv show but uncensored and they can get away with a lot more stuff. I haven’t seen this film since Ryan Dunn died back in June 2011 and wasn’t sure whether my enjoyment might turn into sadness as I remember all the things Dunn did/was known for. But throughout this film, I watched it all and laughed throughout. Seeing stunts like “Butt X-Ray” and “Golf Course Airhorn” remind me that Jackass has always been a show/film that shouldn’t be taken seriously. It’s a bunch of friends having fun for 80 minutes. And fun they have. Also, this is the only film I can watch again but with the audio commentary on. There’s two commentaries; the director, the cinematographer and Johnny Knoxville and the second one has the rest of the cast. Both are fun to listen to as they tell you stories about the film and it’s where I got a lot of my “Fun Fact of the Film” facts. This film is something I can recommend and I am looking forward to eventually watching Jackass Number Two and Jackass 3D. Here are my fun facts – Fun Fact of the Film #1 – Butt X-Ray was originally planned for Steve-O but he pulled out of the stunt after telling his dad about it. Steve-O’s dad said he would disown him if he did this. Fun Fact of the Week #2 – Loomis Fall came up with the stunt, Night Pandas, because he wanted to go to Japan. The crew agreed to take him but no one had the heart to tell him pandas are from China, not Japan. Fun Fact of the Week #3 – Four people were injured making this; Mat Hoffman broke his wrist and knocked himself out during Sweaty Fat Fucks. Johnny Knoxville was knocked out twice, one was when a golf cart flipped with him and Ryan Dunn inside and again when boxing Butterbean. Bam Margera suffered a torn hamstring during the beginning of filming and Steve-O suffered a serious infection filming Tropical Pole Vaulting after pole vaulting into a contaminated river. If you have seen this film then let me know what you thought of it in the comments. Here is what I had to say while watching 2002’s “Jackass: The Movie”
