LAist on the Aisle: Jackass Number Two
Last night we got the opportunity to see the latest effort (We use the term very loosely) from the group that call themselves Jackass, and it was everything it needed to be. This review doesn't require much in the way of in-depth plot or dialogue assessment, so we'll do our best to get the message across.
If the thought of seeing naked little people, fat people, dumb people, and why-am-I-famous people doing things like electrocuting themselves, shooting themselves from rockets, tempting injury from bulls, yaks, snakes, jump from heights, let themselves be hit by massive amounts of weight, and doing things that are just generally in bad taste, dangerous, or mind-bogglingly stupid sounds fun to you, Jackass Number Two is the flick for you.
They seem to have a genuinely good time seeing it, and if you enjoy seeing that, you wont be sorry. And don't worry, the future of Western Civilization is NOT at stake, Darwin and Murphy will eventually have their way with these kids and that'll be that. Truth is, our sides still hurt a little bit from laughing.
