I like Knoxville, Pontius and the other 'JACKASS' movies, but this film just isn't funny.

'ACTION POINT': Two and a Half Stars (Out of Five)

A 'JACKASS' comedy film starring Johnny Knoxville and Chris Pontius. The movie features the usual stunts and pranks, all connected by a story based on the notorious New Jersey theme park 'Action Park'. It was directed by Tim Kirkby, and it was written by Knoxville, John Altschuler, Dave Krinsky, Derek Freda and Mike Judge. The film is a bomb at the Box Office, and it's gotten mostly negative reviews from critics too. I found it to be mostly a bore as well.

Through flashbacks told to his grandson, D.C. (Knoxville) explains how he once owned a successful New Jersey them park, called Action Park. The park was famous for having dangerous rides, ran by inexperienced delinquent teenagers. D.C. and his crew did everything they could to keep the park running, even when it faced stiff competition from a giant evil corporation theme park. In the process D.C. also bonded with his estranged teenage daughter Boogie (Eleanor Worthington-Cox).

I like Knoxville, Pontius and the other 'JACKASS' movies, but this film just isn't funny. I do appreciate it's attempt to recreate the 80's style youth theme park movies of yesteryear though, and in that way it is nostalgic. That's the only thing the film really has going for it though. Other than that it's just a bore, sadly. The other person in the theater I saw it at even walked out half way before the movie was over!
