User Reviews

The Best part of "Jackass" stretched into a half hour of fun!
27 October 2003 | by coolguy5090See all my reviews

In "Viva La Bam", we get to see Bam Margera pull pranks on his dad for a half-hour. And surprisingly, you can't stop watching it. The first episode consists of Bam ironing pictures of hamburgers onto all of his dads clothes, building a firpole in his home in the middle of the night, and turning his house into a skate park. It's the way Bam does these things, it's almost like he feels there can be nothing more productive than what he's doing, that makes the show so entertaining. That side, it's one of the funniest shows I've seen all summer, and I hope they put out a DVD.
