Movie Review by Ezra
February 13th, 2007

Jackass Number Two is now available on DVD for all of you who, like
myself, were kicking themselves for missing it in the theatre.

Seriously, a lot of the more snobby film critic types I know might
laugh at me for this, but I live for this kind of crap. These guys risk their
lives for comedy, and I think there's something to be said for that.
Sure, some of them are just a step or two away from being mentally
handicapped, but at the same time, they're comic geniuses. The proof is
evident in sketches like "Tiny Toilet," "Bad Grandpa" and, especially
"Terror Taxi," an absolutely brilliant prank-within-a-prank featuring
Super Troopers director/star Jay Chandrasekhar.

A lot has been made of the fact that this one is just grosser than the first film, and this is very true: at one point, Chris Pontius actually does something that
even he is ashamed of, and well he should be. But it is also braver and
more death-defying, though probably not as laugh-out-loud funny; Johnny
Knoxville in particular proves again why he is considered the star of
the show, with numerous stunts that make one wonder how he is still
alive and able to walk on his own. They say God protects children and
idiots, which isn't always true, but maybe when you're a bizarre
combination of the two, like these guys, you get a special deal.

The only problem I have with the film personally is the slight element of
cruelty to animals, but the only really egregious case is standard at
any rodeo and won't even be noticed by most viewers. Until rodeos are
finally seen for the American version of bullfights that they are and
made illegal, I can't really blame these loveable idiots for making
them more interesting.
