My Rating: 5 out of 5 🏹


Plot


Celebrating the joy of being back together with your best friends and a perfectly executed shot to the dingdong, the original jackass crew return for another round of hilarious, wildly absurd, and often dangerous displays of comedy with a little help from some exciting new cast. Johnny and the team push the envelope even further in jackass forever.


My Opinion


Pain, laughter and a whole load of pig semen!


Jackass Forever transports you back to easier days full of no troubles and pure unfiltered pain and laughter. The group of friends reunite with hilarious and ridiculous results. This movie had an entire cinema screen screaming with laughter, wincing in pain together and creating a beautiful symphony of ooooo’s and eurgh’s! I went with my friend Paul to this media screening (thank you Paramount) and this is what he had to say:


“Age hasn't affected their ability to make me nearly wet myself, the new cast members fit in well and don't stick out, the opening scene is a fantastic way to start off the laughs, and they don't slow down until the credits end.“


Honestly, there’s not much to say about the movie in its entirety. It is exactly what everyone has come to expect from the jackass team…hilarious stunts, gross tasks and surprising pranks. Nothing has changed in the 20 years and that’s because quite simply it just works. In this movie you will see some golden oldies in terms of pranks and stunts but also some ridiculous new ones.


I have to talk about the new cast members! That’s right, a brand new set of jackasses. They do a great job of integrating into the team and you wouldn’t really tell that they are new, you could be forgiven for thinking they have been around a while. It is time to hand over the deadly animals, brain damage and body mangling to a new era. Johnny, Steve-O, Preston and co have been such solid jackasses for years and they deserve a peaceful retirement now…yeah right! I’m sure they’ll still carry out pranks forever! Be on the lookout for the end credits, there is a touching tribute to Ryan Dunn included!


Jackass Forever begins where the last movies and tv series left off and continues the lunacy into the modern age, grab some friends and head off to the cinema and laugh your heads off as the original Jackasses sign off…forever. The end of an era.
