Top critics gave new ‘Jackass 3D’ movie mixed reviews. Paramount Pictures released their new reality/comedy flick “Jackass 3D” into theaters today,and the top critics gave it pretty mixed reviews with Bs,Cs,Ds,and even an F. The movie stars: Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, Ryan Dunn, Steve-O, Jason “Wee Man” Acuña, Chris Pontius, Preston Lacy, Dave England, and Ehren McGhehey.
Owen Gleiberman at Entertainment Weekly gave it a B rating. He said, ‘More than ever, Johnny Knoxville and his boys belong to a very elite club of idiocy. They martyr themselves for our diversion, driven at every moment to ask: Are you not entertained?”
Justin Chang at Variety gave it a B. He said, “A joyous, liberated approach to comedy, a genuine sense of the grotesque and pacing so relentless that even the less-than-uproarious bits don’t overstay their welcome.”
Peter Travers at Rolling Stone gave it a B-. He said, “Knoxville and his boys seem to be saying goodbye. To which I can’t help thinking, fondly, it’s time.” Michael Rechtshaffen at the Hollywood Reporter gave it a C. He said, “While Jackass 3D can never be accused of stinting on its spring-loaded arsenal of projectile bodily fluids, neither does it approach that sublime, laugh-until-it-hurts level of gross-out nirvana that made the first two installments so darned irresistible.”
Manohla Dargis from the New York Times gave it another C rating. He stated, “It just might be that America’s favorite jackasses, having played around with sharks in their last big-screen effort “Jackass Number Two” of course, have this time actually jumped one, and in 3-D no less.”
Elizabeth Weitzman at the New York Daily News gave it a C. She stated, “Ten years into the “Jackass” franchise, it’s obvious the well is starting to run dry. Then again, if you show Johnny Knoxville an empty well, he’ll jump in headfirst. After packing it with writhing snakes.”
Roger Moore at the Orlando Sentinel gave it a D+. He said, “Those Jackasses from “Jackass” aren’t getting better, they’re getting older.” Kyle Smith at the New York Post gave it a very bad F rating. He said, “Oh, and one more thing the comedy of Jackass 3D has in common with “The Divine Comedy.” Neither of them is funny.”
