Aaron Neuwirth says “Jackass Forever is the legacy sequel to beat this year. Johnny Knoxville and the gang continue to perform their ridiculous stunts for the sake of our amusement, and it’s hilarious. Even better is understanding how much positive bonding is on display, making the film more wholesome than some may expect.”
Dan Murrell says “Sometimes you just want to laugh with friends. There’s room for all kinds of movies – including ones where men in their 40s and 50s get repeatedly hit in the crotch. Simply hilarious.”
Rama Tampubolon says “I’ve been a fan of the Jackass franchise since my senior year in high school when their first episode debuted on MTV. This latest installment, Jackass Forever, is their funniest movie yet. Heads up, it’s definitely not for the easily squeamish. The ingenuity of Johnny & gang’s crazy ideas and their custom-made pieces of equipment never ceases to amaze me. After 20 plus years, they still got it. And the new members of the team are equally eccentric and animated. Outrageous and unbelievably wild, this new movie is every bit insane as I had hoped it would be.”
Kiko Martinez says “Like with most Jackass content, whether we’re talking about the original TV series or the three features that came before, Jackass Forever is a mixed bag of hilarious and immature pranks and other jokes that fall as flat as the penis in this movie’s vice-paddleball scene. It’s nice, however, to see these guys open their strange little fraternity to new members, including a woman. Plus, since these guys are a bit more grey and brittle 22 years after their MTV show debuted, it feels like there’s a lot more at stake physically with their latest, brainless adventure.”
John Rocha says “Jackass Forever is 90 minutes of laughing out loud, clapping your hands, covering your mouth, and losing your shit funny! This is a GREAT return to form for the Jackass franchise with INSANE new pranks, great new additions to the crew, and a porta-potty surprisingly full of heart. Johnny Knoxville’s got himself a winner here!”
Alexander Robinson says “If there was ever one type of movie that deserves to be seen with an enthusiastic audience, it’s Jackass Forever. Everyone going into the fourth movie knows exactly what to expect at this point and boy does it deliver in spades. The comradery between the returning crew and the way the new cast members fit in perfectly makes you feel like you’re hanging out with them and enjoying the fun as an innocent bystander. For me, the stunts don’t quite reach the same level of creativeness as the ones in Jackass Number Two or Jackass 3D, but as the old saying goes, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. Jackass Forever is just as hilarious as its predecessors but also pushes the shock value far more than the previous movies, so those who have weak stomachs, be warned!
Matt Donato says “Jackass Forever is everything I want to see from these jackasses again and again. Why mess with perfection? So much glorious stupidity, so much reckless endangerment, and so, SO much shared laughter. It’s wholesome, from-the-heart entertainment for the R-rated crowds.
