Did You Know?

Trivia

The "rocket skates" segment was originally planned to air as part of the Jackass (2000) television show, but it was added to the movie after MTV refused to air it. It was also added in the movie because skit was filmed again in Japan but the bottle rockets used on the roller skates were weak as compared to the ones in the original segment. See more »

Goofs

In the opening scene, where Johnny Knoxville is taking the rental car to the shop, in the top left corner, a boom mic is clearly visible. This is a reality film that breaks the fourth wall constantly - crew/equipment visible goofs are not mistakes in this genre. See more »

Quotes

Bam Margera: [from extended footage, on phone] How much does Rake hate mustard?
[to cameraman]
Bam Margera: This is Rake's mom and she says I wouldn't be able to have children in my future.

Purely for true fans and those with iron stomachs
10 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

Quite simply, the scariest movie ever made. This includes the likes of the Seventh Seal and Working Out with Zsa Zsa Gabor. What our fellow man will do to himself to get a cheap laugh is beyond me, but it tends to work in multiple fashions. Johnny, Steve-O, Wee Man, Party Boy, Bam, Preston Lacy, Dave, Ehren and all the other fellas in this film will never win anything but my self respect. It takes guts to get hit by a tidal wave machine, go up against Butterbean and eat a urine-soaked sno-cone. While many will attribute this as a factor to the continuing downfall of society, at least it was damn funny (even with multiple viewings). Never has a film actually induced me to nearly vomit. Not for the tasteful and high faluting type.
