Jackass Number Two is the 2006 sequel to Jackass: The Movie. Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, Steve-O, Chris Pontius, Ryan Dunn, Dave England, Wee Man, Preston Lacy and Ehren McGhehey all return to showcase their insane brand of stunts and practical jokes. It’s a more extreme than the first movie. They really tried to outdo the first one. Expect to see a lot more vomit, poo, and horse semen. The best thing about the Jackass movies is that they have no plot. It’s perfect for when you feel like laughing but don’t want to pay attention.
It looks and feels like the cast had a fun time filming the movie. It’s a pretty good gig. They get to hang out with friends all day getting fucked up and doing fucked up things to each other. And they get money and fame for it. Johnny Knoxville is the obvious star and leader of the Jackass crew; he does the most stunts and is the most fearless. He brings a cocky charisma that the other cast members lack. Bam Margera is probably the second most famous member, but he doesn’t deserve to be. He’s a little bitch and it becomes apparent a few times throughout the movie (most noticeably when he starts to cry because of a little cobra). Steve-O and Chris Pontius are always fun to watch together. Ryan Dunn has a few moments that stand out, and it makes me sad when I remember that he’s no longer with us. Jackass Number Two is worth watching, and it’s not a bad movie to own either. It doesn’t try to do too much. It’s not trying to win any awards. It just is what it is.
