I used to love watching this show with my kids

I don't understand why every show has to show tits and ass for it to be good my children are not allowed to watch this anymore and it offends me so I don't watch it. If people would be more cautious and what they put on TV what our children are watching and subjected to the maybe the world wouldn't be going to hell the way it is sex drugs and rock and roll and you are a part of the problem

Very Racist

The mimicking of videos pertaining to some foreign clips is very much racist and derogatory.... I am surprised that Whacked Out Videos are not sued.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (1 ):

While most of the show is dedicated to showcasing dumb and dangerous tricks, some of the footage is actually of religious and social practices performed by cultures from other parts of the world. Unfortunately, the narrator's comments about these activities include some uninformed observations about the rituals. Worse, in the name of humor, they sometimes offer inherently racist comments about those who practice them. For example, in one segment, Columbian men are referred to as "Juan Valdez wannabes" and Columbian women were said to be competing for "the town's stretch pants."

Regardless of why the stunts are being performed, the fact is that the majority of these exploits pose a real danger to those who try them. Because they're being presented as a form of entertainment, it may be difficult for younger (or less-mature) viewers to appreciate the real risks associated with them. In other words, this one's not for kids.
