Ive only seen a few episodes but it is mostly pretty funny. Some of it's kinda dull in a sense that they let certain things go on too long, but all in all I think its fun to watch people hurting themselves. Purposely.

As with "backyard wrestling," families of Jackass imitators stimulate the economy by shelling out good money for long-term medical treatment and/or funerals; additionally, the show inspires individuals with rock-bottom IQs remove themselves from the gene pool. So I guess it's a good show, in that respect alone...

Tom Green, WWF, Puck, Jackass--it's all by fools, for fools.

Some things are funny just because it is so obvious what they come up with isn't going to work out well. Like installing skies on a toilet and having one of them to sit on it and take a ride down a long alpine hill with lots of trees on both sides.

jackass is lowest level, it's stupid and it doesn't make any sense.
but who cares, it's damn funny. their ideas as such are dumb enough, but actually doing them is really crazy. rah!  :D

Hi I'm Johnny Knoxville, Welcome to Jackass.   :D   :D   :D

Jackass is without a doubt one of the funniest things on the teevee, too bad it was canclled last summer. Three seasons were made aswell as the gumball rally 2001 special.

It is very sick, the amount of stuff not show on the show is amazing.
everything from "love mayonaise" squirting everwhere to Bam beating-up his dad even more!
it's been done.
i think the best moment is the Cup-Test.  :)

I thought it was quite funny at first, but it's too repetitive and gets a bit boring.

It's cheap yet funny entertainment, we should make a Poll of the best jackass moments. There are so many, it's funny when he's got a piece of wood strapped to his arms and he goes round asking people to unzip his flies :laff:

as I said, you have to be the "Jackass" generation to like it  :).
which usually mean if you skateboard then you are jackass.

I Myself dont skateboard, but I do think wee man is funny, that is just as good.

classic moments:

Steve-O waxing his eyebrows/pits/chest and getting his hair torn off his body....
oh dear, how sore.

also Pontius and his lifegaurd stuff  :)

Jackass was some of the funniest stuff i have ever seen.  Its always great to see dumb people doing dumb stuff and paying the price.  I loved the episode where Johnny gets tazed and stuff.  Also wee man used to work at ET Surf and Sport in Hermosa Beach where I bought my Snowboard.

"I don't care" doesn't even begin to describe the level of apathy I have toward this show.

I've tried watching it but it's too boring. Some of the gags that other people tell me about sound funny, but I am never motivated to sit through a whole episode. I can't believe they are making a full-length movie out of this.

A full lenght movie, sounds ambitious considering there is no actual plot. I'll be interested to see how they tackle this problem, if they don't then it will be a total flop.

They make full length movies out of everything now, so I wouldn't be surprised.

According to this the movie is completely unscripted. So stupid. Almost admirably stupid, but not quite.

There's a fine line between admirably stupid and just plain stupid.  See "Freddy Got Fingered" for more info.


Actually, don't.  You'll be a better person for not having seen it.

Jackass has its moments. Like when they played medeival joust with armored suits on bicycles, or when one guy dressed as a ref for a basketball game on the park. The ref was constantly tipping out their ball, which was great potential for him to get beaten up by the basketball players. I haven't sit down to watch an entire show, though.

I saw a little bit last night but it looked a bit lame, perhaps it was just a bad episode.

I love Jackass. I thought it was really funny. but I never liked the one where you have to vomit for fun  :puke:

Best parts:
The cup test and the one where Johnny Knoxville got turned upside down in the public toilets covered with crap.

Was that the one where he wore a body suit in the porta-potty and they had a crane/dump jiggling it like crazy? One of the most memorable Jackass moments.

I don't know. My friends all rave about the show, but when I actually sat down and watched it I think I may have only laughed once or twice tops. It just seemed like a dull show. Still, others have their ideas of humor too.

I used to think Jackass was cool, but after like the 3d repeat it started to get boring.  Sometimes it is even too tasteless for me,even  though i have a high tasteless-tolerance factor.  Like the time they had to drink large quantities of milk and puked all over the place.  And that guy who was in that upside-down toilet, and all the shit ran over him.
The gumball 2000 ep just sucked.
