Jackass Number 2

Rating: B

Johnny Knoxville and his band of merry stoners are back for another installment of the grossout humor that we've all come to know and love. Well, at least, the men have grown to know and love. A lot of folks know that Jackass 2 will not win an Oscar, Golden Globe, or any other award out there. It's not made for that. This movie is just a bunch of guys being stupid, doing stupid things, getting hurt, and you know what? For what it is, it's fantastic.

It's not as good as the first one. I know it seems wierd to analyze such a steaming pile of cinema, but here goes. It seems to me that most of the guys returning for the new movie just aren't into it as much as they were before. I don't know if it's that some of them, most notably Steve-O, Bam Margera, and Chris Pontius, all of which have had some mild success on TV, just don't care or what. The stunts range from just mildly amusing to I-Can't-Breathe-I'm-Laughing-Too-Hard. Not something you'd want to see twice, but it's worth seeing. On more thing, guys, leave your women at home. They just don't understand.
