Jackass 3D (2010)

2 1/2 Stars (out of 4)

Stupid Comin' at Ya

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Roughly a third of Jackass 3D is flat-out hilarious, with extreme slapstick hitting, punching and pratfalls, more or less like an updated version of the "Three Stooges." Likewise, star Johnny Knoxville has a certain amount of comic charisma onscreen, and he's often fun to watch. The second third is just simply not funny, and the final third is absolutely vile and vomit-inducing; The most heinous stomach-turner has to be a sequence in which Preston exercises while wearing plastic wrap, and then Steve-O drinks a cup of his sweat.

Otherwise, a character bungee-jumps inside a port-o-potty full of excrement. Various animals appear here, including buffalo, a ram, a pig, a bull, a dog, scorpions and bees, and all of them attack the characters in some way. These guys seem to crack each other up, but they don't seem to understand or care why their antics have caught on in such a big way. The film is both bold enough and stupid enough to cross the line many times between funny and cruel, and it raises some interesting questions. If nothing else, it's an experiment (or perhaps a prank) on the American public. The introductory and closing segments are more elaborate than usual, making interesting use of the 3D presentation.
