Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this DVD release compilation of the Finnish reality show's violent exploits is a non-stop succession of brutal pranks performed as entertainment. Imitating them could lead to serious injury and/or death. As a result, this DVD is not recommended for kids and younger teens, and parents should exercise caution when allowing older teens to watch, too. Parents should also know that the show includes brief nudity and sexualizes women. In one instance, the guys catch a couple in the act of having sex in a barn. The only upside to all of this is that the guys truly seem to care for each other (although they still attack each other violently).

Is It Any Good?
This is extreme sports meets extreme stupidity. Since the movie is directed by Bam Margera of Jackass and Viva La Bam fame, it'll be no surprise if your teen wants to watch this DVD. Bam and Steve-O are cult heroes for some teens. These are the same guys who watch snowboarding and skateboarding videos with their friends and howl when the featured snowboarder wipes out. It's the crashes more than the successes that attract them.
Of course, sometimes it's hard to see the violence for all the joy. The guys truly care for each other, and they seem to get immense pleasure out of hurting themselves because it makes their friends laugh. If you do let your teen watch this, it might be a good idea to talk about how teens can get the same kind of reactions from their friends without putting themselves in danger.
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.
