Not by the sweat-drinking or the upside-down projectile defecation.. No, that's just good, wholesome fun.
I'm disturbed because I found a lot of the movie tedious.
I don't say that lightly. Back in the day when my husband brought the first Jackass movie home on a rented DVD, I might have made a comment about how stupid he was for wasting his time on that kind of nonsense. (I was apparently in a position to judge because I spend all my spare time
Yet, when he put it in, I was immediately in love.
(That's what she said.)
From the moment I heard the opening music, I was glued to the television. I watched that DVD three times in succession and then promptly bought the DVD and the soundtrack -- which I still contend is one of the best movie sound tracks, ever.
I loved the second installment even more. Every stunt had a playfulness and hilarity about it that was ridiculous and funny and charming all at once. Especially if your idea of charming is someone who will put on underpants attached to a bungee cord and jump out of a tree.
I think I have just given you a lot of insight into the types of men I'm attracted to.
But this one? It seemed to be lacking the lighthearted fun that the first two movies had. It seemed more mean-spirited and well...kinda stale. Also? Not nearly enough music.
It definitely had its moments, but overall...just not the fun romp in the crocodile pit of Jackasses past.
Steve-O needs a drink,
