Jackass Number Two
A Movie Review

MPAA Rated - R

It's 1:35 Long

A Review by
The Dude on the Right
Okay, let me get this off of my conscience. I never saw the original "Jackass" movie, nor caught the MTV series. Itís not that I didnít want to, I just never found the time. This is one of those revelations to my friends that seems totally bizarre, like when I told Stu Gotz I never saw "Napoleon Dynamite" and told Dewey Cheatum, my accountant, that I had never seen "Braveheart." And now that Iíve seen "Jackass Number Two," I have to admit that I have absolutely no idea how to write a review for the movie.

I mean itís "Jackass," like the first one I can assume, only more of it. I canít use any standard movie reviewing bullshit like "Johnny Knoxville shows his acting chops, but could use a little more polish in selling a scene," or "It just doesnít seem appropriate to humiliate the height-challenged Wee Man," or "The special effects in this movie were groundbreaking." There sure isnít any plot development to talk about, except for maybe the last vignette where a prank is pulled by one of the Jackass guys dressing up as a terrorist and hoping in a cab to the airport, and am I really supposed to mention the "outstanding choreography" for the closing number?

More appropriately I could use something like "Itís not something I ever wondered how it was done, but it was scientifically enlightening to see how they collect semen from a horse," or maybe "I wonder how my mother would react if I turned her staircase (if she had one) into a ski slope?", or maybe "The physical training Steve-O went through to film the scene with him in the ocean with sharks really paid off."

For your Godís sake Iím not going to waste any more of my time or your time with a review, but just let you know that I laughed my ass off, nearly vomited, and had to cross my legs with the effect of phantom pain many times, especially seeing a real snake trying to take on a trouser snake, err, I mean "mouse."

You already know if "Jackass Number Two" would be your cup of horse semen, and if so, I highly recommend it. For all of the critics bashing the film, how can you not appreciate what should be an Oscar nominated performance by Bam Margera when he was trapped with a King Cobra? Unlike Johnny Knoxvilleís "just making a paycheck" performance in the movie, itís takes real acting ability to cry like Bam did on camera, and on cue.

Itís 5 stars out of 5 for "Jackass Number Two" even if there was not an ounce of nudity I actually wanted to see.  In the immortal words of the way-overused saying, "It is what it is."

Thatís it for this one! Iím The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
