I think these komodos need to leave this cruise.

Maybe I'm just a sick, perverse freak, but I loved the first Jackass flick. Sure, it had some moments where even I had to look away from the screen or gag, but overall, I had a great time watching these fools torture themselves. But lightening doesn't always strike twice in the same place, and I can honestly say that I didn't really enjoy Jackass Number Two as much as I wanted too.

You know the plot. Johnny Knoxville, Bam Magera, Ryan Dunn, Chris Pontius, Steve-o, Wee Man, and some other idiots are on yet another epic quest to hurt themselves for our amusement. They succeeded with flying colors the first time, yet just barely squeeze by here. Why? Jackass has always crossed the line and gone over the top. But here, they go bit TOO far across the line, a bit TOO far over the top.

Sure, I'm amused by the puppet show at the beginning. I'm repulsed, but still entertained by the butt chug. But I'm just plain disgusted Steve-o sticks a fishing hook through his cheek. Jackass Number Two is incredibly gross and depraved, even by Jackass standards. There are times when I swear it kind of looks more like a really messed-up snuff video than a comedy, such as the man-fishing and leech-on-the-eye parts. It so crude, so tasteless, than not even a sick, perverse freak like me can really fully enjoy it.

So although it has some shining moments, like the musical number at the very end, Jackass Number Two doesn't live up to the first. Actually, it barely lives up to the average episode of Viva La Bam.

I thought that the 2nd one wasn't quite as laugh out loud funny as the 1st, but I still enjoyed it.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
