The above definition certainly offers no explanation. None the less, people were dying to be part of this film. It's a moronic, idiotic and insane series of sketches, dares and mindless stunts. But you've probably heard all the derogatory idioms for this flick. Have you heard this one... Clever?

Yes, clever. Some folks just won't find the antics funny, but the majority of you will laugh so hard it will hurt. Others of you will uncontrollably piss yourselves unable to walk away for a bio break. The beauty of this film is you simply can't wait for the next part. There are no false build-ups. It's pure hilarity from the first second and on through the credits. You'll laugh at things you've never seen, never thought were possible and some things that can't be comprehended in a single viewing.

I'd never watched the Jackass show on Mtv. I'd heard of it, but have long been disgusted with Mtv's inability to produce anything more than the fakest of fake reality shows (The Real World). Remember when the "M" stood for Music? Yeah, I've seen Mtv2. Anyway...

This flick has great replay value. Every time you encounter a friend who hasn't seen it, you'll feel compelled to watch it again. Or you may just be in the mood for insane humor and give it a watch. Either way, one viewing doesn't do it justice. There's too much to take in with a single viewing. I found myself laughing so hard, I'd miss the next gag.

Buy this DVD!
