Jackass Forever is the latest – and likely final – addition to the wildly absurd Jackass series.

The film stars are Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Jason Acuna (wee man), Chris Pontius, Dave England, Danger Ehren, Preston Lacy, Jasper Dolphin, Zack Holmes, Rachel Wolfson, and Erik Makana. The film is directed by Jeff Tremaine.

Do you have a favorite trash movie? The kind of movie that’s mind junk for your head but you love it anyway? We have all done dumb stuff before but the Jackass series is on another level. Jackass Forever comes into theaters not trying to do anything deep or daring but rather to just have a good time with old friends.

Jackass Forever proves once again that nothing is off limits. The film is stuffed with farts, vomit, and private jokes galore.  Some of the most stupid things you could think of are here. Some made me laugh and some made me cringe. (In a good way.)

One of the things to appreciate is the film never feels desperate for laughs. This isn’t your average sequel to a long running franchise that’s trying to steal your hard-earned cash. The creators know what the fan base is and that’s all that matters in the end.

As usual, the pranks and jokes are brutal and pay homage to the original pranks from the first couple of films but each one with a unique twist. I’m not gonna spend time analyzing the film’s pranks. I believe that the best way to enjoy this movie is to see them for yourself.

You got to love the fact that the film makes references to pop culture and other movies. It’s a clever touch that provides a brief fun moment for movie fans.

In the end, Jackass Forever is a fun movie that takes its time to deliver fun and shocking humor. It’s a celebration of Jackass. This is one film I don’t recommend seeing with a parent or guardian. Instead, grab a buddy of yours and go see this movie. It’s one hell of a ride.


Jackass Forever is in theaters Feb. 4.
