Thoughts on... Jackass 3D (2010)

Jackass 3D, 2010.

Directed by Jeff Tremaine.

Starring Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, Ryan Dunn, Steve-o, Jason 'Wee Man' Acuña, Preston Lacy, Chris Pontius and Ehren McGhehey.

Synopsis:

The Jackass crew return for the third installment of their TV show spin-off.

Here’s how I expected Jackass 3D to play out:

Annoying American Moron 1: You ready for this man?

Annoying American Moron 2: Yeah dude, ready as I’ll ever be.

Annoying American Moron 1: Ok man brace yourself.

Annoying American Moron 2: Oh Christ dude wait up...

Annoying American Moron 1: 1, 2...here it comes man...3

(Some form of speeding projectile crashes into Moron 2’s private parts)

Annoying American Moron 2: Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

Annoying American Moron 1: Bulls-eye man!

Dimwit Onlookers: Hahahahahahahaha awesome!

(Close-up of throbbing impact area, rendered an unappealing, dangling reality by the magic of 3D)Repeat scene to fill film.

This still isn’t a million miles from several scenes in Jackass 3D.
