Jackass. Jackass. Jackass. Ohh how I love me some Jackass. I hope everyone is excited for Jackass 3D because I sure am. Jackass Number 2 caused a whole paradigm shift for how I looked at Jackass. When it was just the show I thought it was pretty good but that there was only a funny bit or two per episode. When their first movie came out I didn’t even go see it because I heard it wasn’t very good. But Jackass Number Two.…… epicnesswin is all I can say.
If you are new to Jackass the crew is divided into three groups. The first group consists of people that are legitimately crazy and do all of the show because they just love pain and making people laugh. Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O and Chris Pontonius fall into the first group. They will do anything at anytime without hesitation, and are usually the guys trying to talk other people into doing the stunt with them. I am pretty sure these guys would do this stuff for free because crazy is their biggest talent and there are only so many ways to use it.
The second group is made up of people who love the attention and money but sometimes hate everything about Jackass. Bam Margera, Ryan Dunn and Wee Man fall into this group. Wee Man really would be in group 1.5 but that is not an actual group. This group of guys love being on the sideline drinking beer or doing the embarrassing stunts but when it comes to doing the crazy shit are not happy with life at all. I am going to guess the Bam Margera will cry at least 3 times in the new movie- it’s kind of his thing.
The third and final group consists of Dave England, Ehren McGhehey and Preston Lacy. These guys hate everything about Jackass but the money is just too good to pass up. You can see the fear and despair in Dave England’s eyes every time he is about to do a stunt. I actually love watching his stuff because his hate of Jackass makes everything he does even funnier.
Jackass 3D hit’s the big screen tonight so go check it out. Or you can wait for my review before you decide to go or not. In the meantime you can stream Jackass 2.5 on Netflix and get all warmed up in preparation of what I can only hope is incredible.
