The first three films in the Jackass franchise, in which Johnny Knoxville and friends perform a variety of crazy and dangerous stunts. 'Jackass: The Movie' (2002) sees the boys having fun and games with golf carts, urine soaked snow cones and self-inflicted paper cuts. Series regulars Bam Margera, Steve-O, Dave England, Chris Pontius (alias Party Boy) and Jason Acuna (alias Wee Man) all make an appearance. The original MTV wreckin' crew returns in 'Jackass: Number 2 Uncut' (2006), pushing the limit of what is morally acceptable to commit to celluloid even further. More cringe-worthy stunts, more nasty spills, more stupid pranks than even the first movie. As well as their native US the crew also takes the camera to Australia, India and Moscow in its search for new ways to gross out an audience. In this compendium of the cruel: Chris Pontius makes his private member into a puppet - painting a mouse-face on it. It is then dragged around in a snake's cage until the snake strikes at it and doesn't let go; a fake valentine card is hung on the wall of cast members' hotel rooms and a hidden camera installed to watch the action. Why? Because behind the paper is a pneumatic arm with a huge boxing glove; special guest Spike Jonze is dressed up as an elderly woman named Gloria who goes around L.A. talking to salesmen. After the two parties have conversed, the old lady's shirt drops, revealing fake, drooping breasts; the team baits a hook with Steve-O (hook actually through his cheek) and throws him into the water - crowded with Mako sharks; Johnny Knoxville is blindfolded and charged by an angry Yak. Everything as normal for the Jackass crew, then. 'Jackass 3' (2010) sees another onslaught of insane and painful pranks. Bull riding, a paintball shootout, rocket jet-skiing and bungee jumping while strapped to a (full) toilet are just some of the pranks the boys get up to this time round, as well as 'the worst wake-up in the world', in which Bam Margera wakes up his sleeping friend in the most brutal and disgusting ways he can dream up.
