The preview for this new Jackass movie appeared in my inbox today, and I thought, No.
Johnny Knoxville is completely grey and I don’t want to see a guy in his 50s get run over by a car, punched out by Tyson or have his dick bit by a rat. But then (there’s always a but then) I watched the trailer, and now I definitely feel that Jackass Forever—or Jackass 4—was a good idea, and exactly what America needs as it gets back up from the Covid K.O. ‘Celebrating the joy of being back together with your best friends and a perfectly executed shot to the dingdong,’ reads a press release for the film, ‘the original Jackass crew return for another round of hilarious, wildly absurd, and often dangerous displays of comedy with a little help from some exciting new cast. Johnny and the team push the envelope even further on October 22 in Jackass Forever.’ That’s 93 sleeps away. Can’t wait.
