Listen here. (Or maybe read here is better?) Regardless, if you are coming here for some hard-hitting thoughts on Jackass Forever (2022), then you are most definitely in the wrong place. How the hell can you critique or analyze a movie like this?

Jackass Forever is a movie about dudes being dudes. The boys (and one gal, shout out Rachel Wolfson) are acting like idiots and laughing at the idiocy they perpetuate. I never thought I would see as many dicks, or ball sacks, as I did…but that is no one’s fault but mine. The pain dealt is immense, and the laughs belted are numerous. There are many times in Jackass Forever where the audience is covering their mouth, containing their engorged eyes and hiding a child-like grin. This is what Jackass is, and you are either along for the ride…or you are getting sent up into the sky with an atomic wedgie.

So how do we like, summarize Jackass Forever? There are a ton a skits that are painful and hilarious. We have dick slapping, bee stinging, wedgie inducing, tarantula biting, snake poisoning, porter pottey tossing, milk chugging and paint ball wearing skits. For good measure, throw in random inflatable gut punches, broken furniture, and unsuspecting audience members. That is Jackass Forever.

Oh, and the dicks. Jackass Forever does more for male nudity in movies than any other movie that comes quick to mind. You see it all, and from various different people. Now, these dicks may be painted like Godzilla, beaten till bloody, eaten by vultures, or flattened into ping pong paddles…but that is really par for the course. The confidence that these men have with each other, and their bodies, is enviable.’

The way they ended Jackass Forever was nice and sentimental. The large charge (similar to that of a last hurray with fireworks) is started off by Johnny Knoxville himself getting absolutely BULLDOZED by a bull. They end up showing the side-by-side of when he first did the stunt nearly two decades ago. Turns out, he took nearly the same trajectory. He did not get up as fast though…

The credits are also a memory capsule. I am not going to sit here and pretend to be the biggest Jackass fan in the world, but seeing all the same faces, but both young and old, is a real reminder about how far they have come. Jackass Forever was about telling the world that the spirit of Jackass can live on, even if the bodies of the original crew are getting older. The exuberance of youth is bountiful.

Honestly, I say this maybe because I am coworkers with him in a way, but Dan Katz (AKA Big Cat) would fit in perfectly with this crew. Just in terms of the rallying town crier to get everyone to do something completely outrageous. He has the infections life like Knoxville, and he has the salt and pepper hair to match it.

Jackass Forever is a “WE ARE GOING TO HAVE FUN, GOD DAMNIT” movie, and it hits all the right notes. It may be squeamish at times, but even if you have to close your eyes, you will still be laughing at all the participants make complete fool of themselves.
