"Jackass 2"

How are these guys not dead yet?

Seriously… The first Jackass was insane. But “number two” is worse, and significantly so. It’s incredible to witness these guys willingly endure such traumatic events, some with brutal consequences, and to see how they face and deal with these extreme decisions. To know that they are all banking a nice paycheck is probably the one and only comfort in this film. I mean, Steve-O shoves a giant hook & line straight through his cheek and jumps into a school of swarming sharks as human bait. It’s certainly creative, but it’s also so arresting sometimes that it's just not right to laugh. And then what is beyond this? I'd hate to think about that for too long.
