Here’s the thing…I love Jackass. Loved the show. Thought the movies were hilarious. But I don’t buy that this shit is “real.” There’s just no way you can film this stuff in super Hi Def without having large cameras around. It’s the same thing with the Sacha Baron Cohen movies. You can get away with it for a short time, but once your big and can be recognized, everyone knows your schtick. They get it. So you have to hire extras to pretend that they’re shocked. It’s whatever. It’ll probably be a funny movie, but I hate when Hollywood tries to act like we’re all idiots who buy that this shit is real. I mean, I’m guessing over 50% of the population are idiots, so it’s not a bad idea. But as a self-proclaimed intellect, I get upset.
But since we’re on the subject, I have to rank the “hidden camera” movies.
2. Jackass 2
3. Jackass 1
4. Jackass 2.5
I haven’t seen The Dictator but I heard it was garbage. Da Ali G movie was less about interviewing and more of an actual story. The five I mentioned all made me laugh a lot. First time I saw Borat was one of the hardest I can remember laughing. All of the Jackass movies were good, and Bruno was funny too but it was so uncomfortably gay.
