The digital release Jackass 3.5 is in many ways more inspired than Jackass 3-D. Perhaps it is because they include failed bits, but it feels like this collection pushes the boundaries of creative stunts more than the latest theatrical film.

The performers’ personalities are on display even more. In 3-D, Steve-O lamented, “Why do I have to be Steve-O” before letting a tee ball hit him in the nuts. In 3.5 he lets an alligator snapping turtle bite him on the ass. This shows way more of Steve-O’s personality as he screams, “F*** F*** F***” while it hangs onto a juicy chunk of cheek. The most telling part is that Steve-O complains he knew it wouldn’t let go, so his prophecy was fulfilled. Any time Chris Pontius introduces a bit it’s brilliant.

3.5 certainly feels more dangerous. In Doo Doo Falls, Dave England just falls off the vehicle, forget about riding it down a ramp. With the flaming gauntlet, Steve-O does what has to be the most dangerous Jackass stunt ever attempted. The graphic stitching-up of Johnny Knoxville’s hand shows what’s at stake.

The failures seem like they’d have more potential if they’d just stuck it out, but the displays of athletic prowess are mighty. Dave England and Bam Margera can jump really high for impressive flying kicks. Barrel surfing is actually a noble athletic endeavor and Chris Pontius and Bam Margera manage to stand for a few seconds. The Incredible Nut Shots are really clever setups and you see how hard they are to land, so it’s even more impressive.

There’s definitely more nudity, and way close up. Slow motion close-ups of Wee Man’s balls complement medium shots of Pontius’s limp dick twirling around. Enema Long Jump may qualify as the most disgusting and most inspired Jackass stunt ever. They’re measuring athletic ability and bowel movements in the same exercise.

Jackass 3.5 is a treat for a digital download or video on demand. It’s brand new material, completely at the level of the theatrical franchise, directly available in the privacy of your home.

Jackass 3.5 is available April 1 on Joost.com. I got to see the whole thing, but Joost viewers will get weekly doses, one stunt at a time, updated Tuesdays and Fridays on Joost.com.

New ‘Jackass’ Movie Goes Straight To Internet Like Rocket Into Butthole http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/new-jackass-movie-goes-straight-to-internet-like-rocket-into-butthole/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/new-jackass-movie-goes-straight-to-internet-like-rocket-into-butthole/#comments Fri, 28 Jan 2011 02:02:00 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=Video&p=22949 'Jackass 3.5' is a feature-length collection of unused bits from 'Jackass 3D,' featuring Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Bam Margera and should be Oscar-contender Wee Man.

Already jonesing for more bone-crushing, ball-kicking, nipple-tazering Jackass? The better question is “who isn’t?” The answer to that question: jerks.

Jackass 3D, a film the Academy should be deeply ashamed for snubbing this year for Best Picture, returns on April 1st with an 85-minute half-sequel released right to the internet. Called Jackass 3.5, the film is a collection of unused bits featuring Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Bam Margera and should be Oscar-contender Wee Man. I’ve never seen Javier Bardem kick himself in the head or wear an Oompa Loompa costume. Not even once.

The movie will be available via the Jackass Facebook Page and Joost, the streaming media site I knew existed but never cared to use until now.

This is an awesome idea. Yeah, it’d be cool to see more 3D donkey nut punches, but $25 is still $25. My only worry is that the film is scheduled to release April Fools Day, so hopefully playing the movie doesn’t result in getting some kind of hilarious computer virus that forces your desktop pattern to be an animation of Steve-O vomiting. Actually, for a free Jackass movie, I’ll take that trade. (/Film)

The news that Jackass 3D antiqued the competition this past weekend (take that, Helen Mirren!) wasn’t too shocking. However, the news that the film had the biggest opening ever for a September-October release was a surprise. And when you’ve got an opening that big, it’s only natural to want to show your opening off.

Paramount and Johnny Knoxville are way ahead of you. They kept busy while pee-peeing and pooping on one another, by filming enough additional content for another sequel. This extra material was intended for a DVD release, but now Paramount execs are entertaining another theatrical run. Which is fine by me. If we can have a Twilight in theaters every four months, why can’t we have a Jackass? I’ll shoot a full toilet out of a cannon at you if you disagree. (LA Times)

‘Jackass’ Guys Talk Favorite Stunts http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jackass-guys-talk-favorite-stunts/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jackass-guys-talk-favorite-stunts/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 The Jackass 3D gang recently sat down with Break to discuss their favorite stunts, both past and present. Toy cars up orifices and beards made from Steve-O's pubes seem to be up there on the list. The most interesting piece of information I gleaned is Steve-O feels it's necessary to save his pubes in his medicine cabinet instead of throwing them away. I guess it would be a sacrilege to not glue them to someone's face.  Check out the video below.
