A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
These guys aren't trying to make any sort of statement with their stunts; they just seem to enjoy putting themselves in disgusting or dangerous situations. How they're considered "professionals" is still a mystery. While a couple of the skits tested various crew members' limits, they never seem upset afterward.
Positive Role Models
Johnny Knoxville and the rest of the gang try to outdo each other with a series of gross and often dangerous stunts and pranks. They may be fearless, but you wouldn't describe them as role models.
Violence & Scariness
Since this is "B" material leftover from Jackass: Number Two, there's actually a tad less violence in the stunts, but they're obviously still dangerous. The crew is hurt in all sorts of creative ways, especially in the crotch or buttocks. One guy lies down on a bed of nails with snakes on top of him. Another guy tries to fly a kite out of his buttocks, etc. And one guy is able to defecate on cue. There are also other relatively tame pranks.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
No sex, but several glimpses of male genitalia, both real and displayed on T-shirts, posters, etc. Even more frequent shots of the crew bare-bottomed, including lots of close-ups of the guys inserting things in their anuses. In one scene, a naked morbidly obese woman is momentarily lowered onto a nearly nude Wee Man for skit.

There are no scenes without at least one of the crew cursing -- even, in Bam's case, to his own parents. "F--k," "s--t," "c--k," "bitch," and "ass" are the most common.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that they can expect more of the usual from the Jackass crew this time around: dangerous and often downright stupid stunts and pranks (like seeing how hard a snapping turtle will bite their nose or whether baby powder can be used to show the precise moment flatulence leaves the body). This DVD is compiled from material leftover from Jackass: Number Two, so it tends to be lower-concept stuff that the filmmakers rejected for the theatrically released movie. Expect shots of naked butts, male genitalia (and penis posters and T-shirts), men drinking or being sprayed with urine, a man able to defecate at will for the camera, a nude morbidly obese woman sitting on Wee Man (who is a Little Person), and more. Oh, and incessant swearing, too. To stay in the loop on more movies like this, you can sign up for weekly Family Movie Night emails.
Is It Any Good?
These are subpar setups that weren't deemed good enough for a theatrical release; some are neither shocking nor funny, just gross. A couple of the skits net a few laughs, but others could end in vomiting or other expressions of disgust -- like the sight of Dave England defecating on cue for the camera, for example. And if only there was a procedure that could erase the memory of seeing Wee Man, who is indeed a Little Person, being sat on by a very nude, very morbidly obese woman who was going to "give birth" to him.
It's obvious why young men and teen boys idolize these merry pranksters. They don't do much of anything except hang out, come up with stupid stunts, do them, and egg each other on... Except for Margera's unbelievably accepting mother (and the super-sized nude woman), there are no women in this Jackass world; it's not hard to see why.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
