A show that follows Bam Margera (of Jackass and CKY fame) in his attempts to anger his parents. Unlike CKY or Jackass, Viva La Bam focuses mainly on the torture of Bam's parents and less on harmful stunts.
While the rest of his high school graduating class is heading to the same old grind of college, skateboarder Eric Rivers and his best friends, Dustin, a goal-oriented workaholic, and misfit slacker Matt have one last summer roadtrip together to follow their dream of getting noticed by the professional skateboarding world--and getting paid to skate. When skating legend Jimmy Wilson's skate demo tour hits town, the boys figure that as soon as he sees their fierce tricks, he'll sign them up for his renowned skate team immediately, right? Unfortunately, the guys are intercepted by Jimmy's road manager and they can't get their foot in the door, much less their boards.

Great movie overall
Overall I thought this was a great movie. Generally it seems like a movie for teenage boys, with its crude humor and acting, but for girls who are more open to comedy, you will love it as well.
Personally, I think that the plot isn't very realistic with four guys traveling all over the country to get noticed. Nonetheless, that's what made this movie better; it added more laughs to the film. Vince Vieluf was hilarious as Matt, especially the scene where they wake up in the desert. For the girls, if you didn't find it funny, at least there were some good looking guys in the movie...Mike Vogel as Eric and Adam Brody (from the O.C.) as Dustin were both gorgeous. I don't really know where Sweet Lou's character fits in, but seeing that the plot isn't very realistic, his character seemed appropriate. The film leaves viewers satisfied, and it is easy to understand. I enjoyed it and it was absolutely hilarious.
