Consensus: There's a good chance you'll be laughing hysterically at one stunt, but getting grossed out by the next one in this big screen version of the controversial MTV show.

It's not exactly stupid. Cynical might be a better word.

Jackass: The Movie is a disgusting, repulsive, grotesque spectacle, but it's also hilarious and provocative. God help me, thumbs up.

Nell Minow
Common Sense Media

More idiotic and dangerous than the show. Really.

While there is no scientific proof, chances are good your teenagers will leak brain cells by the thousands while watching Jackass. And you might even want to see it with them.

A hysterical and energetic film, but not for everyone as it is quite revolting at times. If your not squeamish and in the mood for comedy you'll love this.

Jackass - The Movie is not so funny like Number Two and 3D.

Jackass humor = my kind of humor. I love everything this gang has ever made, even if some gags are flat-out distasteful. This first film isn't as… More
