I quite enjoyed Jackass Forever and 4.5, but i'm thinking that most of it came from perhaps the nostalgia of remembering staying up on a friday night watching the original series followed by Dirty Sanchez and The Dudesons.Jackass 4.5 - Netflix
When I was less old, I used to entertain myself by watching Jackass on MTV. Johnny Knoxville's cackle and that distinctive guitar intro was heard quite often in chez Nemesis.
My problem with Jackass is this - the stunt bits are usually hilarious, but the gross out bits are pretty damn gross.
This film changes none of that formula.
Witness the joys of watching a tennis pro pound balls at 100mph right into the groins of the chaps. Watch the majesty of the big game hunt with an oversized tennis ball cannon as two of the larger members of the group (along with Wee Man) who're dressed as elephants.
Then enjoy the insertion of sushi into various folds, crevices and belly button of one 400lb member, who is then wrapped in clingfilm and does physical exercise. After a short while, the film is peeled off and the rest of the cast have to eat the sushi, which is now warm and sweaty.
Or watch as penii are squished between two sheets of perspex and a table tennis game is played between the captive members.
Knoxville and Steve-O don't do as many stunts as they used to, but it's forgivable. Anyone whose eye has fallen out of their socket during dinner is probably exempt from doing too many strenuous stunts.
It did make me feel nauseous and gave me a few giggles though, so there's that.
