Horrible, Annoying, Unfunny, Boring, Disgraceful
16 February 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This movie tries to be funny but fails completely. There are a few moments worth chuckling at, but the rest of the movie is so dull and pathetic that you simply won't be in the mood. The preview is actually a lot better. Don't bother with this movie, you'll just sit there wishing it will hurry up and finish. Borderline racist and blatantly sexist. I feel sorry for the reputable actors who agreed to be in this film as it will surely damage their careers.

Absolutely nothing like Jackass, or cky, so don't be deceived by the fact that some of the Jackass crew feature in it. There are barely any stunts, and the sketches are disjointed and inappropriate. The humour is consistently so lame it actually makes you feel embarrassed. Anybody that says it was a good film, or that the people giving it a bad review "just didn't get it" are absolute morons; the jokes are so obvious, and so old, that it's impossible not to get them, they just aren't funny.

Unquestionably one of the worst movie experiences of my life.
