Jackass Forever Blu-ray Review

The Jackass franchise continues to bat a thousand.

It’s been 12 years since “Jackass 3D,” but at long last a fourth installment has emerged with “Jackass Forever.” While the lack of presence of the late Ryan Dunn and Bam Margera (who does appear very briefly) is noticeable, veterans Wee Man, Steve-O, Johnny Knoxville, Chris Pontius, Preston Lacy, Dave England and Danger Ehren all appear. But that’s not all that. This time around new cast members have entered the fold. Any concerns fans may have had about new faces are immediately alleviated as they fit right in (especially Poopies, Zach Holmes, Rachel Wolfson and Jasper Dolphin and his father Dark Shark). Like the other films in the series, Jeff Tremaine returns as director of this stunt, pain, prank, and male nudity filled sequel. 

As others have wisely exclaimed, “Jackass Forever” is the movie we need right now. The last few years have been full of dark times to say the least and, as the saying goes, laughter is the best medicine. “Jackass Forever” sure provides plenty of that. Even though the aging original cast takes somewhat of a backseat this time around, there’s no shortage of laughter here. Whether the goofball newcomer Poopies is on screen or Steve-O is getting attacked by bees, you’ll undoubtedly be roaring with laughter (assuming this comedic franchise is up your alley that is).

Although there are many highlights, Danger Ehren has THE best moments here. He goes through hell in this outing and, as a result, ends up stealing the entire movie. The brutal athletic cup test, the bear encounter, and the laugh riot “Silence Of The Lambs” lights out bit involving Ehren are among the best moments in the entire franchise. 

While some may scoff at the Jackass films, they deserve their place in pop culture history. Not only are they genuinely funny, but each film is brimming with creative art pieces. It is often said artists suffer for their art and that’s certainly true with everyone involved with the Jackass franchise.

Video/Audio:

Presentation: 1.78:1 1080p. How does it look? The video quality has come a long way since the old MTV days. This is the best looking Jackass movie to date.

Audio Track: 5.1 DTS-HD MA. How does it sound? From the music to the screams of pain, this track delivers.

Extras include a Digital copy, Paramount trailers, and 16 deleted scenes (sadly no play all option available). Some of them fail, some were left on the cutting room floor for a reason and some were gems like the fire extinguisher bits and the hot sauce stunts in “Fire In The Hole.”
