'Jackass 3D' opens with the entire cast all lined up, each wearing a different color of the rainbow, in front of a rainbow colored background, each in turn being attacked in various ways. Some of the footage is slowed down for maximal effect. This is repeated again at the end of the movie with additional explosions mixed in with gallons of water to wash away the cast- chaos is resumed. Throughout the movie the team are subjected to the usual foray of physical abuse from team members or perform hilarious stunts (including some of the more stomach turning stunts such as the Sweat suit cocktail, Toy Train Eruption and Poo Cocktail Supreme - not for the weak stomached!).

The Lamborghini Tooth Pull sequence was originally shot for Jackass Number Two (2006), with Vincent Margera getting his tooth pulled. A shot of it was featured in the original trailer, but was pulled from the final release due to Margera's 2006 sexual assault arrest. This time around, it was Ehren McGhehey getting his tooth pulled.

In the final 'explosive' scene, before the plunger is pushed, the corner of the room that Bam Margera is sitting in is relatively empty. However, when the Johnny Knoxville orders everyone to put on their goggles and proceeds to push the plunger, a bookcase appears in the corner. See more »

It delivers exactly what it promises, and it's great
I know a lot of people think this stuff is too lowbrow, or too gross. But it's really compelling. You have to watch -- it really sucks you in. And when it's over, you leave the theater thinking, "That was the greatest thing I've ever seen." This is maybe the most cinematic movie to come out of Hollywood in a long time. I know they used to be on TV, but this is stuff that really wouldn't work in another medium.
So while on one hand they seem like a bunch of dopey guys punching each other in the nuts, on the other hand, they're out there displaying a really solid understanding of the medium. It's sort of like, there's Tarantino, and Johnny Knoxville, and everyone else has to get in line behind them. Maybe other people tell stories that are more important. But these guys really understand how film and brains mix it up.
I would also say that they're probably the only famous performers in Hollywood who don't get paid enough. I don't know how much they get, and I'm sure it's a lot. But it can't possibly be enough.
