When I expressed my intense interest in seeing Jackass 3D at work mere days before its release, my enthusiasm was met with an incredulous utterance to the effect of "Who would want to see that?" My response was, "Everybody. The first two opened at number one, and this one will too."
One record-setting weekend later*, one man stood vindicated.
*On its opening weekend, Jackass 3D became the largest October opening ever.
Since the 3D re-emergence began, the oft-mentioned/alluded to Chad, Mark, and I have joked about a hypothetical Jackass 3D, complete with the lewdest things possible, surely including a 3D teabagging. Years passed in which we joked about the movie. We talked about it so much that we began to believe it was going to be a reality. Then came word that it actually happened, and just like with Piranha 3D, the sequel that made the most sense to be made in 3D was on its way.
In other words, Jackass 3D was predictably AWESOME.
It is in everyone's best interest that I say very little about what lies within this film. Know as little as possible. Half of the enjoyment is in the surprise. Well, that and the absurd lengths that these mostly affable* fools will go to for an extreme laugh.
*I'm excluding Bam Margera from the affable crew, as he seems to be the only total dick among them.
There is a reason this movie opened huge. Catharsis.
Laughing is cathartic, and you'll laugh your ass off... when you're not cringing or holding back vomit.
