More of the same stunts/pranks; funny, but gross, cruel.

Nudity SO MUCH Nudity

Don’t waste your time or money. I needed to scrub my eyes and ears out after seeing this. Every other word was the F word or some sort of profanity. So many ding dongs!!! (Barf) The genitalia in this movie is gross and full on nudity EVERYTHING. Shock factor for sure. I don’t know how it got an R rating. The “stars” of the show are older so they don’t do a whole lot of stunt, except Danger Erhn, he must be hard up for cash. Please don’t let your kids see this trash. Waste of money IMO.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (6 ):
Kids say (20 ):

Aside from a few new cast members -- and some gray hair on the old ones -- not much has changed here. There's some funny slapstick, but also fear, pain, cruelty, nausea, and ugly examples of peer pressure. The fifth Jackass feature movie -- if you count Bad Grandpa (2013) -- Jackass Forever comes 20 years after the first movie, and if these guys haven't learned their lesson by now, they're never going to. For every expertly timed comic pratfall, there's a moment when a performer is clearly in pain or discomfort and crying out to quit but ultimately peer pressured into doing more. It's hard to laugh when the performer is screaming "it hurts!"

One of the guests, the father of one of the new cast members, known as "Dark Shark," frowns at one of the stunts (a vulture plucking meat from Wee Man's crotch), saying, "Stop ... don't do that." Sometimes performers are even enraged at just how excessive the pranks have gotten, made worse by their fellows' raucous laughter. These sequences, which make up perhaps a little more than half of Jackass Forever, outweigh the funny stuff (which is, admittedly, pretty funny). This team scored a win with Bad Grandpa, which neatly combined stunts and pranks within a genuinely fun, sweet story. It's too bad that they had to go back to this segmented reality-show format. But longtime fans will probably still be pleased.
