Review & Comments
Leave your thoughts about Jackass 2.5.
Film Threat - 10/10 by Pete Vonder HaarComedy, like most everything else, is subjective, and this may be the greatest example out there of "getting it" or not. If you thought the first movie, the original TV show, the Three Stooges, or "Football in the Groin," was funny, chances are “ackass: Number Two is right up your alley.
The Hollywood Reporter - 9/10 by Michael RechtshaffenIt didn't seem possible, but Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, Steve-O, Chris Pontius, Wee Man and company might just have cooked up a sequel that's even wilder, funnier, extra-depraved and more gag-inducing than the seemingly incomparable "Jackass the Movie."
The New York Times - 9/10 by Nathan LeeDebased, infantile and reckless in the extreme, this compendium of body bravado and malfunction makes for some of the most fearless, liberated and cathartic comedy in modern movies.
L.A. Weekly - 8/10 by Scott FoundasAs merry pranksters they have no match, and as they age (Knoxville is 35 now), they only grow in appeal. As they proudly hurl their tattooed (by ink and battle scars) bodies into harm's way, a devilish glint in their eyes, it's as if they've discovered the fountain of youth, and its name is Jackass.
Boston Globe - 8/10 by Wesley MorrisThis is extreme comedy, and it's amazing how director Jeff Tremaine, who along with Spike Jonze has been affiliated with this troupe from its outset, creates an environment where self-inflicted torture is uncontrollably funny without being morally offensive.
Entertainment Weekly - 8/10 by Gregory KirshlingJackass Number Two is not as original, aberrantly beautiful, unrepetitious, or good as Jackass Number One, yet it will still double a lot of people over with big laughs and grossed-out disbelief.
San Francisco Chronicle - 8/10 by Peter HartlaubThis is the "Godfather II" of tasteless prank films.
The A.V. Club - 8/10 by Staff (Not credited)Some movies simply shouldn't be seen sober or alone.
Empire - 8/10 by Tony HorkinsJackass: Number Two aims low and hits lower, but is as hilarious and uncomfortable an encounter as possible
Austin Chronicle - 8/10 by Josh RosenblattJust the kind of vicarious excitement for which the movies were invented.
Rolling Stone - 8/10 by Peter TraversThe heart of Jackass - the adolescent drive to bash body and soul into the symbolic brick wall of maturity - remains pure.
Salon.com - 7/10 by Stephanie ZacharekPart of what makes "ackass Number Two so frighteningly watchable -- even against your better judgment -- is the way the guys delight in one another's bumps, bangs and bruisings: First, they feel one another's pain; then they laugh like hell.
