Review by Steve Rhodes
½ star out of 4

The name says it all. Jeff Tremaine's JACKASS: THE MOVIE is a vulgar and cheap-looking version of "Candid Camera" staged for the Marquis de Sade set. Although the movie is certainly a crowdpleaser for the fans of its TV series, I spent most of the time being forced to look away from the screen. Based on our very receptive audience, I'm here to report that there are those who find looking at the contents of an adult's soiled underwear funny. Personally, I was ready to barf or run screaming out of the theater -- actually, both.

The stunts in the film range from the painful to the stupid to the exceedingly gross with most having elements of all three. The guys in the picture do things like electrocute their private parts and jump into a pool of alligators, wearing only a jockey strap -- the guys, not the alligators. Never have I grimaced so often.

In the gross category, the signature stunt of the film has a guy defecating into a toilet that is for sale on the showroom floor of a hardware store. Needless to say, the owner is nonplussed and extremely angry.

The only good news about the picture is that, if you leave early, you won't miss anything. It never gets any better.

JACKASS: THE MOVIE runs a very long 1:20. It is rated R for "dangerous, sometimes extremely crude stunts, language and nudity" and would be acceptable for older teenagers.

My son Jeffrey, age 13, gave it just 1/2 of a star, saying that he found it disgusting and really bad. The only sequence that he liked was the opening one featuring a supersized shopping cart.
