Jackass The Movie aka Butts, Puke, and Filth

Nov 2, 2002
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:The end credits.

Cons:The movie itself.

The Bottom Line: This is truly a Jackass of a movie.


I am not a male. I am not a teenager. I am not a male college student. I have never lived in a dorm with other guys. So, I will allow you to hold that against me as I give my review of this most disgusting movie.

The first thing you will probably think when I say what I say is, "Get a grip. It's only a movie." Well, I may realize that and you might, but there are millions of kids who do not. I am also a nurse, so I tend to look at things a bit differently.

One of the first scenes was when a guy rented a car and took it to a demo derby. Then he took it back to the rental company and told them he wasn't going to pay for its damage.

This movie is full of gags and dangerous stunts. I don't think it should be found funny in any way. It is also full of super toilet humor. My concern is that some of these dangerous stunts WILL be tried at home even though the movie says not to. I offer a further warning. Don't go see the movie.

First of all the movie is based on an MTV show called Jackass. It is hosted by Johnny Knoxville. The movie, like the show, deals with stunts and gags. It will someday be blamed for some unsuspecting kid being maimed or worse by trying one of the stunts.

These are my reasons for thinking the movie is a bad influence.

The first stunt shown in the movie is a modified shopping cart that the whole cast of Jackass is riding in down this very steep hill that is also a street. At the bottom of the hill is a pile of garbage they are flung into when the cart hits it.

The next scene that I found a bit disturbing was the "gag" played on this couple who were asleep. At one O'clock in the morning these boys take a bucket full of fireworks into the couple's bedroom where they proceed to set them off. The guy has to be at work at SIX o'clock in the morning. He finally is allowed to get to sleep, but when he leaves for work at 6:00am he is again startled by another load of fireworks in his truck. He claims it scared him so much he soiled his clothes. Now the guy is going to have to clean up and be late for work.

I might have let the movie off with the scene where they use that product of TV that is supposed to shock your muscles into shape, but one guy started shocking his private area.

Johnny Knoxville wanted to have rocket skates. So, his friends bound large bottle rockets to his skates and set them off. They would push him about 10 feet and then they would knock him over. All the while the fireworks are still going off.

Then things started getting disgusting. This one guy wanted to be able to do number two in a toilet on sale at a hardware store. The first time he tried the other guys in the truck started making him laugh and he messed his pants. As if that weren't enough they had to film him cleaning himself. The cameraman was so overcome with the stench that he started vomiting. The second time he tried he succeeded in putting his load in the new toilet.

Later on some guy scooped up a bunch of snow and put it in a cone. Afterwards he peed into the cone. Then he ate the snow. It made him sick and he started vomiting.

These two guys filled their pants full of shrimp to go swimming with whale sharks. They were surrounded by them.

Johnny Knoxville who seemed to be in a lot of the stunts dressed up in protective gear, so a policeman could shoot him with a beanbag. They use these to stop criminals. He was hit close to the bladder and it immediately bruised him. Days later the bruise grew to a large spot.

In one scene the guys were on a balcony shooting off fireworks. This one guy gets the idea to take his pants off and put the bottle rockets in his anal opening. They light it and it launches from there.

There were also masterbation of sea cucumbers, privates handling, and many, many nude male butts. I've seen more naked butts in this movie that in my whole 20 year career as a nurse.

So, are you laughing, yet? I sure hope not. This movie may be funny to daredevils and teenagers, but it's not funny to me. Even if everything was set up and was highly supervised, it still wasn't funny. Blazing Saddles is funny. Good Morning Vietnam is funny. Shrek is funny. Jackass is NOT funny.
