Did You Know?

Trivia

The final stunt of the movie features Johnny Knoxville diving into water with Rip Taylor holding up a "The End" sign. On the DVD release of the movie, you can actually see that this was the last part of a much larger stunt involving all of the cast members that was never successfully completed. It was mostly featured on at least the European VHS release however, and the complete stunt was reminiscent of a stunt track, in which every cast member would be part of the track, with Johhny Knoxvile diving in the water as the climax.

Funny???? Where's the funny part? Stupid, YES!!! Not Funny
1 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Funny???? Are we talking about the same movie? Stupid YES!!! Idiotic YES!!! Bizarre YES!!! Please tell me who in their right mind thinks this is funny, because if they do they seriously need to get their head examined. Or at the very least need a life.

I have watched all and I mean ALL kinds of movies and have never been more turned off by the IDIOTIC, TOTALLY WRECKLESS and DANGEROUS acts these idiots perform.

I can just imagine how many preteens and teenagers that watched this stupid movie and perhaps thought to them selves, "hey, so and so, I dare you to jump from that condominium roof top into the pool, Jackass style?" Which by the way really did happen, was video taped by a friend and the kid missed the water by 24 inches breaking his legs in the act. We all saw it on the news when cops took the video as evidence and released it to the news reporters.

And these acts with animals like bulls, sharks, snakes and alligators just to name a few and then stand there in front of the camera laughing like a bunch of STUPID, RETARDED IDIOTS is so outright dangerous I think they should BAN these idiots from making these films. WHY?? because we have children, and anyone under 18 is considered a child, watching these acts and not all, Thank God, but you and I know that there are few out there just waiting for the moment (no parents or guardians around) when they see the opportunity to "just try it out to see what will happen".

I just think this goes beyond the line of sanity and shudder of the thought that a bored, naive child will be urged, dared or coerced by his so-called friends to do a stupid act "Jack Ass Style".
