What’s happening readers! My first early screening of 2022 is in the books and it was a fun one!! Johnny Knoxville, Steve-0, and the rest of the Jackass gang are back at it and it’s been almost 20 years since the original Jackass movie. I was fresh out of high school when that hit theaters in 2002 and the antics were much crazier than what could be shown on the tv show. I remember laughing, cringing, and gagging. Then they made more movies and pushed the craziness and disgusting acts further. I recently bought the Jackass collection so I revisited 1-3 before I went to the screening of Forever. I forgot about some of those scenes……WHHHHEEEEWWW!!! I understand doing stupid things with your friends but snorting wasabi….NOPE! Purposely inflicting pain to my junk….NOPE! The port-o-potty sling slot….OH HECK NO!!!!!! It’s crazy to watch though. Either you’re a Jackass fan or you’re not. If you are then Forever will be a good time and there are some new faces to the bunch. The old timers did them dirty in some of these scenes! There wasn’t a lot of people in the screening audience but we laughed together and “OOOOOOHHHHHHHHHH’D” together. I heard some gagging as well. Forever dialed down the nastiness compared to the previous entries but there’s plenty of bodily fluids flying around and one scene really grossed me out. I was eating trail mix and I had to stop for a few seconds. Like this guy really did that. EWWWW!!!
Forever featured A LOT of junk. Full frontal junk. If you’ve seen any of the Jackass films then you know the guys use their privates for gags and Steve-O does something INSANE in Forever. I was bug eyed watching that scene. Forever gave me that nostalgic feeling and it’s wild because with every Jackass movie you can feel the hurt and see the disgust but the cast always has good time. This is definitely fan service for all of us who been there since the beginning. Check it out on a discount day if you have theaters open in your area.
