Dir. Jeff Tremaine. 2022, 96 mins. DCP. With Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Chris Pontius, Dave England, Wee Man, Danger Ehren, Preston Lacy. Twenty years after the surprising box office success of Jackass: The Movie, and twelve years since the previous offering in the series, Tremaine, Knoxville, and his cackling stuntmen of stupidity reunite for more mayhem. Now pushing 50 and sporting a fully white mane, Knoxville is a mortal impresario, giving these death- and dignity-defying feats an added element—poignancy—which is only enhanced by the introduction of a younger, and more notably diverse, crew of co-conspirators, some of whom were raised on Knoxville and Co.’s antics. The formula hasn’t changed—florid Hollywood homages open and close the film, and in between are wall-to-wall stunts and pranks entirely untethered from a narrative thread—but the tone has warmed, such that the very endurance of these elaborate Three Stooges and Wile E. Coyote-style stunts reveals a story arc furnished by time and the documented image.
