Content:

(PaPaPa, Ho, LLL, VV, SS, NNN, MM) Very strong pagan worldview with content that is just plain sick, foul, gross, etc., plus some homoerotic references; at least 245 obscenities including 155 "f" words, 27 profanities, people vomiting, and much scatological humor, including eating horse manure; strong violence with dangerous stunts and much harm that the participants brought upon themselves or cause to on another, including man strapped to rocket, men run with bulls, man blindfolded in pen with bull, skiing down staircases, man swims with sharks, and man puts fishhook in mouth; suggestive and crude sexual images and references but no sexual activity per se, unless one counts the sadomasochism of some of the more outrageous stunts; nudity involved in pranks and stunts, including many male buttocks images, fake breasts on an actor dressed as an old woman, male testicles, and full frontal nudity; no alcohol use or references; no smoking or drugs; and, outside of the sickening stunts and images, there is a “sketch” of a man dressing up as a Middle Eastern person, pretending to be a terrorist with a fake bomb strapped to his stomach.

Summary:

JACKASS: NUMBER TWO is another movie based on the infamous TV series about a group of men pulling a bunch of dangerous and offensive stunts and pranks, often getting hurt and bringing harm to others. There is no artistic or dramatic purpose to this abhorrent movie, which has lots of repulsive and foul content.

Review:

JACKASS: NUMBER TWO is another movie based on the infamous TV series about a group of men pulling a bunch of dangerous and offensive stunts and pranks. The subject of the stunts and pranks includes self harm, nudity, sexual crudity, harm to others, and taking advantage of the innocent bystanders in the public areas where they performed and filmed many of the stunts. The stunts include such things as skiing down staircases, running with bulls, and scatological challenges, pranks and episodes.

Avoid this movie altogether. There are elements that may bring a laugh, but at the viewer’s expense of tolerating sights that literally make you want to throw up. The obscenities are out of control, and the actions of most of the “actors” are just plain stupid. Hence, the title. Again, there is no element of this abhorrent movie that is worthwhile wasting the time or money to see. It has no artistic or dramatic purpose.

During the Roman Empire, gladiators had to provide ever more gruesome spectacles to amuse the pagan crowds and satisfy their bloodlust. The gags in JACKASS: NUMBER TWO are a sign of the return to paganism in a society that too often seems headed for destruction.

In Brief:

JACKASS: NUMBER TWO has no story or plot. Just imagine a group of guys trying to cause each other to laugh and be as crude and nasty as possible. The various stunts are played one after the other in no particular order or subject matter. They include such things as skiing down staircases, running with bulls, and scatological challenges, pranks and episodes.

Avoid this movie altogether. There are elements that may bring a laugh, but at the viewer’s expense of tolerating sights that make you want to throw up. The obscenities are out of control, and the actions of most of the “actors” are just stupid. Hence the title. There is no artistic or dramatic quality to this movie. The style is documentary style with only hand-held cameras. The content is repulsive and foul. Again, there is no element of this film that is worthwhile wasting the time or money to see. During the Roman Empire, gladiators had to provide ever more gruesome spectacles to amuse the pagan crowds and satisfy their bloodlust. JACKASS: NUMBER TWO is a sign of the return to paganism in a society that often seems headed for destruction.
