Who is excited and waiting for this to come out?
(I think it's Oct. 25th in America, and Jan 24th in the UK.)

A Nairn (moretap), Monday, 14 October 2002 03:00 (eighteen years ago) link

Jesus, no-one, I would hope. Jackass is the Sex Pistols of stupid, with the added advantage that some of the people who go "Yeah! I could do that!" will end up dead.

Andrew Farrell (afarrell), Monday, 14 October 2002 08:29 (eighteen years ago) link

Andrew = on crack!!

I can't bloody wait, in fact I've got a mate in Thailand ready to send me a pirate dvd as soon as they hit the stalls in Bangkok.

The trailers look fantastic.

chris (chris), Monday, 14 October 2002 08:37 (eighteen years ago) link

Okay then, defend it. Explain what is worthwhile about people damaging themselves on camera. Pay particular attention to the distinction between it and You've Been Framed/America's Funniest Home Videos.

Andrew Farrell (afarrell), Monday, 14 October 2002 09:24 (eighteen years ago) link

see the thread I started ages ago. Everyone needs some mindless fun in their lives and Jackass is it for me. Admittedly I'm not a big fan of the clips where they con or make fun of hapless passers-by, there it steps into the realm of trigger-happy tv etc which you speak of but when they do the stunts etc it can be exhilarating, for example Tony Hawk and Matt Hoffman on the loop the loop jump into the lake, absolutely awesome.

chris (chris), Monday, 14 October 2002 09:27 (eighteen years ago) link

that other thread:
Jackass c or d

chris (chris), Monday, 14 October 2002 09:44 (eighteen years ago) link

I actually like the ones with the passers by. I hated when Dom Joly did the sketches with old people though, easy targets and also they all seemed quite taken in.

Ronan (Ronan), Monday, 14 October 2002 09:47 (eighteen years ago) link

curses, Chris had spotted my secret Cool Thing I Saw On Jackass (the loop the loop)

Andrew Farrell (afarrell), Monday, 14 October 2002 10:04 (eighteen years ago) link

has anyone seen the CKY movies?

g-kit (g-kit), Monday, 14 October 2002 10:09 (eighteen years ago) link

you can't argue with the Loop, dude.

and on that, Bam was damaging himself, yes. But only because he wanted to do the thing so goddamn much.

an infrequently mentioned classic has to be the iceblock sledding, so simple, so much fun!!

not seen cky yet, although when solvent again I will be getting a few.

chris (chris), Monday, 14 October 2002 10:11 (eighteen years ago) link

Andrew WK is on the soundtrack Andrew with his bestest song yet!!

Tom (Groke), Monday, 14 October 2002 10:12 (eighteen years ago) link

ah, the CKYs are really great. they're doing another movie called 'Haggard', or so i hear. with actual plot & stuff. hmmmm. not sure if there's gonna be a CKY4. anyone know?

g-kit (g-kit), Monday, 14 October 2002 10:16 (eighteen years ago) link

yeah, I read about Haggard on one of the fansites. Rake Yohn (long haired bloke who gets antiqued and doesn't like it) is the main character from what I remember.

I did hear about Stevo being arrested for public indecency recently after stapling his scrotum to his thigh in a nightclub.

chris (chris), Monday, 14 October 2002 10:24 (eighteen years ago) link

i think steve-o's stapling thing was for his own video, imaginatively titled "the steve-o video" i believe. i didn't know Rake Yohn was in it lots, but i heard it was based on Ryan Dunn's (guy with er, shit on his lip) weird love-life. but what do i know?

g-kit (g-kit), Monday, 14 October 2002 10:27 (eighteen years ago) link

hmm, I may be mistooken, but Tony Hawk definitely place a cop

chris (chris), Monday, 14 October 2002 10:32 (eighteen years ago) link

I love Jackass, I didn't know they were doing a movie. I won't be able to see it at the cinema though because it makes me laugh too much and then I have coughing fits and I don't want to lose all dignity in public, even if is dark public. It takes me about 5 days to recover from watching each episode.

toraneko (toraneko), Monday, 14 October 2002 11:36 (eighteen years ago) link

did anybody see the x-files episode where there was a fake jackass? they called it dumbass and some guy on it had his skull collapse in because flies ate his brain at a fantastic rate...
i'd never really watched the x-files - has it always been so comedy?!

minna (minna), Monday, 14 October 2002 11:45 (eighteen years ago) link

This will be the greatest thing in history. I'm assured of it. Jonny Knoxville is the only man who can challenge Steve Irwin for the title of "Greatest Human Alive"

The movie never gets old, does it?

milozauckerman (miloaukerman), Monday, 18 July 2005 02:31 (sixteen years ago) link

The yellow snow-cone scene almost made me barf.

Rock Hardy (Rock Hardy), Monday, 18 July 2005 02:38 (sixteen years ago) link

The only bad scene is where one of them takes a dump in the demonstration toilet. Someone had to clean that up, yuck.

I've never really seen the TV show (half an ep here and there) or the CKY videos, which should come next?

milozauckerman (miloaukerman), Monday, 18 July 2005 02:40 (sixteen years ago) link

there is a fabulous gay porn out called spunked that unsublimates the totatlly hot homoeroticism of the knoxville.

kingfish (Kingfish), Monday, 18 July 2005 03:29 (sixteen years ago) link

the shorter the bits are in this the better. none of them are bad bad but yeah the toilet, the old ppl, the toy truck up the guy's ass, ehhh. the 12-sec one of the guy trampolining into a ceiling fan is one of the most amazing things i've ever seen.

demonlolver (gcannon), Monday, 18 July 2005 03:38 (sixteen years ago) link

my fave is still the guys falling out of the ceiling on the "failed jewel heist" thing. I was crying due to laughing so hard.

as my normally stoic roommate said of the movie at the time: "Best $8 i spent all year."

i've never understood that, either. it must be pretty awful. especially people who watch it, but then look away/cover their face during the painful/gross out bits.
why are you watching it at all!?
i watched that episode where they sit there drinking a gallon of milk because i knew they'd spew it up again, not because i like watching people drink milk.
TEH MIND, IT DOES BOGGLE.

what do you people think of 'dirty sanchez'?

a rapper singing about hos and bitches and money (Enrique), Friday, 8 September 2006 14:58 (fourteen years ago) link

i always thought it really funny that the Onion AV Club sent their only female critic to review the flick, who had absolutely no idea how to process it. It's like the editors realized that the movie was critic-proof, so they figured they have a bit of fun by sending the chick reviewer to see it.

sorry didn't mean to be mean - it's just that that movie is exuberant joy personified in all its fucked up, brilliant vicissitudes.

jhoshea (scoopsnoodle), Friday, 8 September 2006 15:01 (fourteen years ago) link

The difference between Jackass and Dirty Sanchez is that the only "entertainment" value in DS comes from them hurting themselves, it's like a skateboarding video writ large. In Jackass, the stuff is funny even if they don't get injured. I'd give examples but, y'know.

Perfectly example. The Bounty Hunter skit as well, which is probably the funniest thing they ever did.

Dom Passantino (Dom Passantino), Friday, 8 September 2006 15:08 (fourteen years ago) link

Dudes, lay off Ned. He is not being patronizing, his favorite movie is the Lord Of The Rings for christ aloud! His sister probably* holds his choices in an equally rubber-gloved manner.

There was no shark bite follow-up?

Josh in Chicago, Tuesday, 20 July 2021 17:11 (one week ago) link

they kinda follow up within the episode? he shows back up with his forearm in a kind of soft cast thing and they do a straight forward dive after the bite segment to show that sharks wont bite you if you dont cannonball into their hood

it was basically “all’s well that ends well dont do dumb shit around sharks”

Clay, Wednesday, 21 July 2021 01:10 (one week ago) link

i think it has a lot to do with how much they genuinely like each other & the inherent youthfulness in the stupid joy they give each other & the audience. i think that makes it weirdly eternal

J Edgar Noothgrush (Joan Crawford Loves Chachi), Wednesday, 21 July 2021 02:19 (one week ago) link

One thing I also love about Jackass is that they nearly always pull pranks on each other rather than random people, and it has a remarkably KIP vibe for what could easily get ugly

I tried to rewatch one of Bam's CKY movies recently and had to turn it off. The vibe is gross, lots of slurs, mean pranks on strangers. Even though it has a bunch of the elements I like about Jackass

I've showed my kids a couple of clips here and there and they just don't really get it. I've gotta assume a steady diet of tik tok et al has innured them to some of it's charms. At the same time, there are some Jackass gross eating gags I just don't think I can stomach anymore. Downing freshly expressed horse semen? Eating a vomit omelette? I dunno, man ...

Josh in Chicago, Thursday, 22 July 2021 12:16 (one week ago) link

I don't remember if they're from the show or the movies but I can't watch the fishhook or paper cut sketches

Vinnie, Thursday, 22 July 2021 13:05 (one week ago) link

yeah the paper cut bit is by far the most upsetting one for me, have never been able to watch it.

thats interesting about your kids josh. never thought of it that way but i guess that raw skate video clip look that felt so fresh and exciting at the time (no host, no sets, not plot, no point) is the dominant format of online video now & must not look special at all to young eyes.

nobody like my rap (One Eye Open), Thursday, 22 July 2021 13:23 (one week ago) link

first time I saw the first movie was in high school with like 15 other people, literally no one could watch the papercut scene. its annoying but I guess that's part of their thing, it's not Jackass if they can't freak out the entire audience

frogbs, Thursday, 22 July 2021 13:53 (one week ago) link

Mentioned before, but a hunk of the Jackass crew was maybe two years younger than me at my high school. Lots of the show and movies feature destruction of/at sites in and around my home town. Couple of the jackasses bullied my younger sister so bad (I was gone by then, iirc) she left school early.

Josh in Chicago, Thursday, 22 July 2021 13:59 (one week ago) link

first time I saw the first movie was in high school with like 15 other people, literally no one could watch the papercut scene.

Because it's a lot more relatable than some of the other stuff. Croquet ball in the nuts? A rare experience. Savage paper cut from a manila envelope? We've all felt that pain.
