Jackass Forever has us excited: Here’s everything we know so far
By Rey Harris
Los Angeles, California – Fooled forever recently had her red carpet first and hits theaters this Friday – and we couldn’t be more excited to laugh out loud!
Since the release of the original Jackass TV series on MTV in 2000 and the three movies that followed, I’ve always found myself cackling like a rabid hyena every time I watch it.
There’s just something about seeing a bunch of grown men kick each other in the nuts or get blown up that grabs me every time.
Am I incredibly immature? Absoutely. Do I possibly possess a low IQ? I’m not sure, but I understand why you think that. Is Jackass about as low as the movies can get? It’s debatable.

One thing anyone can admit is that franchising has always been a weird cultural phenomenon, and the only place that could ever produce such a calamity is the United States of America.
It’s true: there’s nothing more American than watching a friend get hurt on purpose and laughing with all your other buddies before someone says, “My turn!”
That someone would probably be me. Yes, Steve-o, I’d happily go down that crocodile pit with you, because you’ve helped me feel proud to be an American since I was little.
To say I can’t wait to see Jackass Forever is an understatement, because I’m absolutely sure it will be a riot.
Each film in the series tries in some creative – or disturbing – way to improve on the previous film, making the experience fun and exciting while giving fans a ton to look forward to.
Jackass Forever is for the next generation
The most notable difference between Jackass Forever and the Jackass movies before is Johnny Knoxville’s striking gray hair.
He’s fully committed to the silver fox look, so much so that co-star Rachel Wolfson hilariously confused him for Jamie Lee Curtis.
When I see him now, I can’t help but think of Danny Glover in Lethal Weapon saying, “I’m too old for this.”

We are all getting older, and finding yourself falling down a small staircase one day will be more sad than funny.
The silver lining is that there will soon be a new generation of social misfits who will be so bored with the idea of becoming a corporate bloodsucker that they will end up sticking their hand on the hairy chest of their dad just to entertain their friends.
It’s time to reign in the new era by passing the torch, and that seems to be the goal of Jackass Forever.
New friends and familiar faces
Every movie usually has a few awesome cameos, and Jackass Forever will apparently be no exception.
The trailer has stars like Machine Gun Kelly, Eric Andre and Tyler, the creator, and any fan will tell you that the punishment-prone gang glutton gets really creative when he gets the chance to torture a guest celebrity.
It will also be good to see some familiar faces from the Rebel crew who grew up like hell and are still raging.
Maybe Chris Pontius will give us a Party Boy segment for the good old days. It will also be nice to see Bam Margera again, even if it’s just for one scene.
The trailer only gives us an idea of the crazy antics that will ensue, and I imagine they’re saving the really wild stuff for the actual movie.
We viewers are going to have a hell of a ride.
Jackass Forever takes off in theaters everywhere this Friday!
