Jackass: The nation


Jackass Number Two has become this week's highest-grossing film. What's wrong with this country?

I haven't seen the movies, only the old "CKY" shows, but I tried to orchestrate an intervention to prevent my friends from going to see this. It didn't work, unfortunately. I just imagine this: If there is intelligent life on other planets, and they caught a trailer of "Jackass" while investigating human behavior...what would they think? And would it be accurate in summing up human nature? I hope not. I'm just worried about our space cred, here.

What? What? What kind of anti-fun Taliban is this? While not as good as the first, this film is delightful. It's shameless, gross and really, really a good time.

I'm far more offended by didactic, preachy, after school specials dressed up as high art like Crash than I am about this...

I say bring on Jackass 3

John,
You dis Crash and praise Jackass 3?
Loved Crash. But to be honest, I haven't yet seen Jackass 3 so I really have no right to comment. All I know about it is that my 14 year old desperately wants to see it, and there's no way in hell we'll let him.

What's wrong with this country, you ask? I won't even begin to count the ways; however, I can guess at why "Jackass" is grossing so much: It's gross.
