“Jackass: The Movie: Special Edition – Unrated” is not rated (obviously). The original film was rated R for dangerous, sometimes extremely crude stunts, language and nudity.
Unfortunately, some of the other scenes are downright disgusting. One guy actually craps in his pants in a van and causes the cameramen to vomit from the smell. Another scene shows Knoxville attaching muscle stimulators to the scrotum of one of the guys in full view of the camera. Another scene shows them stuffing a toy car up the butt of another one of the guys. None of this is stuff I wanted to see before I died. A lot of it is actually kind of sad to see. You watch these 30-year-old guys acting like the stupid kids you ran around with in junior high, but they’re getting paid a lot to do it.
In any case, I think you already know if “Jackass” is your cup of tea or not. The only difference between this and the TV show is that there is more nudity, language, and disgusting humor.
This unrated edition has all the bonus features of the previous regular version. You have the same commentaries, the “making of” video, the outtakes, and the 27 minutes of additional footage. However, you don’t have the two music videos that came before. What you get instead is the four minutes of additional footage in the movie, a trailer for “Jackass Number Two,” and “Too Hot for MTV” Additional Footage. This additional footage shows things like one of the guys taking a dump, another guy peeing on Knoxville’s feet in the middle of the night, and other stunts involving bodily functions. I’m not sure it’s worth buying again if you already own the earlier DVD.
