Our Score
Fans of the MTV-spawned Jackass series will be delighted to hear that actor Johnny Knoxville and his daredevil pals haven't calmed down with age. Instead, they've become even wilder since 2002's feature-length Jackass: the Movie, hilariously raising the stakes for bad taste stunts and pranks with this superior and more darkly imaginative sequel. The sick-puppy laughs come thick and fast as the adrenaline junkies combine agonising tests of human endurance with moments of utter grossness and juvenile stupidity. Whether it's danger man Steve-O being used as live shark bait or The Ringer star Knoxville riding a giant rocket, this random procession of often life-threatening skits is a wince-inducing testament to just how far some people will go to amuse others. Ultimately, if you didn't get the concept before, you certainly won't get it now, but if car-crash entertainment is your idea of fun, then this strictly adults-only film is hard to beat.

Summary

Another batch of outrageous stunts is lined up by the death-defying friends, who get chased by bulls, used as human shark bait, have leeches attached to their eyes and ride a giant rocket. Comedy sequel, starring Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, Steve-O, Chris Pontius and Ryan Dunn.
