Jackass 3D Movie Review

For fans of Jackass, a movie 3D “Jackass” sounds very promising. For those who love Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Bam Margera and all of the rest of the Jackasses, this new movie release must sound pretty darned exciting. The news here is that fans shouldn’t get their hopes up.
This upcoming movie is just not as good as its two predecessors. It’s not that it isn’t totally gross and filled with body fluids. It is. It just isn’t as fall down funny as the first two.
It’s true that there’s some really good stuff in this movie on the new movies list, especially if you’re the kind of person who likes to see a full outhouse explode.
While the movies cast of “Jackass 3D” may be just as eager to expose the same number of body parts as in other movies, their hearts aren’t in it.
It’ll be interesting to see how the movie does at the box office. “Jackass: Number 2” brought in $72.8 million and “Jackass: The Movie” brought in $10 million. The 3D effect is expected to bring in lots of moviegoers, but this newest movie still isn’t expected to gross what the two earlier movies did.
Considering that that self humiliation by the crew of Jackass has been going on for ten years now, it’s a miracle that they can still come up with new material.
“Beavis and Butt-Head”, old neighbors on MTV of the television version of “Jackass”, introduce the cast of “Jackass 3D”.
This new movie is directed by Jeff Tremaine, who directed the last two in the sequence. The first two stunts involve tetherball and a beehive and pinning a tail on a live donkey. The rest of the stunts fall pretty flat.
Even less successful are the hidden camera stunts like the bar brawl starring an all dwarf cast that’s led by Jason “Wee-Man” Acuna. The brawl is soon broken up by dwarf policemen.
The 3D really isn’t much of an addition to the movie. The Jackass guys do a pretty good job themselves without the addition of special effects.
A lot of what was once funny now is coming off as pretty gross. It might have to do with the fact that Johnny Knoxville and his crew are all getting awfully close to forty.
Go see “Jackass 3D” if you’re a big fan. Otherwise, forget it.
