The Jackass boys are back, and they’re giving us all they got in 3D. Forget the rest of the movies that have big explosions and gunfire in 3D, the boys bring us puke, feces, penises and dildos. Not too shabby.
Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, Steve-O, Wee Man, and the rest of the gang are back for another round of gags. Some of them are old or reinventions of old gags (“Poop Cocktail”, “Bad Grandpa”), and some of them are new (“The High Five”, and “Tee-Ball”)..
The gags seem repetitive at times, such as when they do a gag involving Bulls or Buffalo, which happened in the last two movies. However, it doesn’t matter because pain is funny, and these guys will make sure that you will indeed laugh. This movie will also test the gag reflexes of the audiences when Steve-O is forced to drink the sweat from Preston Lacy’s back. You are forewarned
The big feature in this movie is obviously the 3D aspect. This film itself is already hilarious, but why see it in three dimensions? It’s funnier. Puke and feces and dildos flying everywhere are funny, but when the 3D aspect is added, everything is bigger, grosser, and more exposed.
Whether in 3D or not, Jackass 3D is definitely one of the funniest movies of the fall, and the extra bucks for the 3D are worth it. The guys may be older, but their spirit has always stayed young. Make sure to stick around to see the photos of the Jackass guys when they were younger with Weezer’s “Memories” in the background. Whether the guys will continue to make films seems questionable, but this film is definitely one to go out with a bang.
