Film Review: Jackass 3D

Director: Jeff Tremaine. Producers: Johnny Knoxville et al. Cinematographer: Dimitry Elyashkevich. Editors: Seth Casriel, Matt Kosinski and Matt Probst. Studio: Paramount. Starring: Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, Ryan Dunn, Steve-O, Jason "Wee Man" Acuna, Preston Lacy, Chris Pontius, Ehren McGhehey and Dave England. Running Time: 94 Minutes.

Judging by GAD's review of Battle For Terra, I doubt he had a particularly enjoyable start to his professional film reviewing career. Unfortunately, neither have I. As a matter of fact I feel compelled to send an invoice of my ticket to Johnny Knoxville and his posse not so politely asking them for my money back.

The premise of this film is very simple: for approximately one and a half hours of your life that you will never get back, you have to watch a group of adult men (if you can call them that) go through stunt after stunt of what can only be described as toilet porn. In this movie, like most 90s sitcoms with canned laughter, there's a lot of laughing happening but none of it comes from you the viewer. In fact it is quite ironic that a couple of times during the movie some of the toilet-pornstars themselves were throwing up in disgust at their own colleague's antics. Surely at this point they should have realised that maybe, just maybe, they shouldn't show those disgusting scenes to audiences if they themselves couldn't handle watching them. But clearly sanity didn't prevail and this film was the end result. I could go on forever but I fear I'll run out of adjectives for it.

Summary: A crude, vulgar and unfunny abomination of a movie with absolutely no redeeming qualities whatsoever. Unless of course you have a fetish for fart bubbles and faecal volcanoes...

Rating: 29/100
