Jackass 3D (18)
Starring: Johnny Knoxville
Friday 05 November 2010
This latest collection of stunts from Johnny Knoxville and his crew of masochistic nutters achieves at least one distinction: it showcases the most pointless use of 3D in movies. I confess that Jackass has made me chuckle in the past, albeit in setpieces of innocent silliness.
I fondly recall Jason "Wee Man" Acuna waddling invisibly beneath a traffic cone, to the bemusement of Tokyo mall-shoppers. Nothing like that here, just a lot of frat-house slapstick mostly to do with pissing, puking and farting, the most appalling of them a stunt called "Poo Cocktail Supreme", in which a man, strapped inside a Portaloo ankle-deep in dog turd, is catapulted skywards on bungee ropes. On emerging from this cocktail shaker – a CCTV camera has obligingly shown us what happened inside – the man throws up, a few of his compadres throw up, and everyone falls about, laughing like hyenas. Maybe you had to be there.
