Jackass 2

Jackass Number 2?! I know, I can't help but write more of a defense statement than a movie review. So consider this:

  1. Yes, some of the scenes are vulgar, stupid and just plain wrong but honestly, didn't you laugh at least once during your Sunday afternoons with the Three Stooges? (Okay fine, but I know you chuckle at America's Funniest Home Videos).

  2. It's entertainment, folks. Mindless - not harmless - but mindless entertainment!

  3. I believe John Waters once said, "There is no such thing as bad bad taste."

  4. Golly – I don't have a fourth point but ... is that a giant bull with long jagged horns charging at - GOYAHHHH!

To see or not to see: If Johnny Knoxville and all his friends jumped off a bridge, would you?

Johnny Knoxville is known for his dangerous stunts in MTV series Jackass however, there is also a good side of his character, a great father and as a producer of a film called Wild Wonderful Whites of West Virginia. The Wild Wonderful Whites of West Virginia has nothing to do with racism; rather it's a documentary film about a family from West Virginia, that premieres at the Tribeca film festival. A year in the life of a family that features everything, including drugs, crime, prison, violence, and tap dancing. The film gets extra publicity, because of the producer, Johnny Knoxville and surely is a hit.
