Movie Summary

Director:
Jeff Tremaine
Released:
2002
Rating:
R
Jackass: The Movie is the cinematic masterpiece taken from the popular MTV show of the same name, that brings to the big screen the cringe inducing antics of everyone's favorite gang of misanthropic gluttons for punishment. Join Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Wee Man and all the others as they give themselves paper cuts between the webs of their fingers and toes, eat their own urine mixed with snow, fire rockets from body parts which shouldn't have rockets fired from them, shove toy cars where toy cars should not be shoved, attempt to make their mother swear on camera by going to the great length of placing a live alligator in her kitchen, attach muscle stimulators to tender glands and much, much more that would make more sensitive viewers turn their heads in disgust ' or keep them glue to the screen. It all just depends on a viewer's willingness to take punishment along with their mindless protagonists.
