Tagline: Don't try this at home.

Plot:  Johnny Knoxville and pals subject themselves to silly and sometimes painful stunts for our amusement.

My rating: 6.5/10

Will I watch it again?  No.

While I never saw the show (until now, sorta), I was aware of it when it came out and saw some bits here and there.  It looked like fun.  It wasn't until the movie came out that I saw that one in the theater and got the Jackass experience.  This DVD is the first of what looks like three volumes that compile not-seen-on-TV segments from the show.  It's not as fun as the movies that came after but that doesn't mean that it's not worth a look.  I got the most laughs from the fake baby gags and the prosthetic hard on bit.  That was some funny shit.  It's only about an hour and a half but it sure felt like much more.  There are dozens and dozens of segments.  The Paramount DVD presents the show in its original fullscreen format with the only extra in a commentary track.
