Did You Know?

Trivia

The final segment, "Butt X-ray", had to be edited as any scenes of a toy car being inserted into Ryan Dunn's anus would be classified as pornographic and instantly land the film with an NC-17 rating. Such a rating would have severely limited the film's audiences. See more »

Goofs

In the opening scene, where Johnny Knoxville is taking the rental car to the shop, in the top left corner, a boom mic is clearly visible. See more »

Crazy Credits

As the credits end, Rip mentions 'the next one should be The Son Of Jackass'. Fade to '2063: The Son Of Jackass', where an elderly version of the crew (as seen on Spike Jonez, Bam Margera, and Johnny Knoxville in the movie itself) attempts to escape explosions, flying debris, trucks, and crashing sheds. Only Steve O. makes it out alive. See more »

Purely for true fans and those with iron stomachs
10 November 2002 | by (Tucson, AZ) – See all my reviews

Quite simply, the scariest movie ever made. This includes the likes of the Seventh Seal and Working Out with Zsa Zsa Gabor. What our fellow man will do to himself to get a cheap laugh is beyond me, but it tends to work in multiple fashions. Johnny, Steve-O, Wee Man, Party Boy, Bam, Preston Lacy, Dave, Ehren and all the other fellas in this film will never win anything but my self respect. It takes guts to get hit by a tidal wave machine, go up against Butterbean and eat a urine-soaked sno-cone. While many will attribute this as a factor to the continuing downfall of society, at least it was damn funny (even with multiple viewings). Never has a film actually induced me to nearly vomit. Not for the tasteful and high faluting type.
