Jackass 3D Reviews

  • More than ever, Johnny Knoxville and his boys belong to a very elite club of idiocy.

    Owen Gleiberman — Entertainment Weekly

  • It just might be that America's favorite jackasses, having played around with sharks in their last big-screen effort, have this time actually jumped one, and in 3-D no less.

    Manohla Dargis — New York Times

  • Indebted as director Jeff Tremaine is to Artaud's Theater of Cruelty and the works of Luis Bunuel, "Jackass 3D" remains surprisingly accessible.

    Dan Kois — Washington Post

  • What's astonishing is that the movie is not a half-baked production. The spectacle now looks spectacular.

    Wesley Morris — Boston Globe

  • 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.

    Elizabeth Weitzman — New York Daily News

  • Whether one enjoys witnessing their antics or not... one should be, I suppose, very glad that one doesn't actually have to hang out with these fellows, their obvious camaraderie notwithstanding.

    Glenn Kenny — MSN Movies

  • Die-hard fans of the original series, which had the good fortune to sprout before YouTube, may feel as if they're getting their money's worth here, though the 3-D component is awfully stingy and tends to be genital- or anal-based.

    Michael Phillips — Chicago Tribune

  • This feels like a natural end for the Jackass franchise. It's been a great run, but nobody wants to see Grandpa Knoxville get toppled over by a speeding shopping cart.

    Adam Graham — Detroit News

  • Few suffer as cheerfully for their art as Johnny Knoxville and his band of scatological stuntmeisters, and the gut-busting pleasure they take in every act of self-humiliation proves as infectious as ever.

    Justin Chang — Variety

  • Knoxville would never admit to such loser taste, but he and his friends are obviously scholars of The Divine Comedy, from which they plagiarized all of their ideas...

    Kyle Smith — New York Post

  • They're still here, suffering for their art. Now it's our turn.

    Roger Moore — Orlando Sentinel

  • It's gleefully immature. It revels in destruction. And it made me laugh a lot, like it always does.

    Eric D. Snider — Film.com

  • Like everything else they've done, "Jackass 3-D" plays less like a movie than a mindset. A really inane mindset.

    Eric Kohn — indieWIRE

  • Hey, I might be flunking Calculus, young viewers tell themselves, but at least I'm not letting someone swing a dead mackerel in my face.

    Stephen Cole — Globe and Mail

  • For the most part, the dumber the stunt, the funnier it is.

    Sam Adams — Salon.com

  • For me, watching Jackass 3-D was like being plunged into a Hieronymous Bosch painting of hell, yet this very reaction attests to the franchise's primal, diabolical power.

    Dana Stevens — Slate

  • Despite the added dimension, Knoxville and company end up falling flat on their aspirations.

    Michael Rechtshaffen — Hollywood Reporter

  • More often than not, this third installment in the franchise, directed as always by Jeff Tremaine, doesn't take full advantage of its visual potential.

    Christy Lemire — Associated Press

  • The Jackass guys, goaded on again by fearless leader Johnny Knoxville and director Jeff Tremaine, don't seem as eager to outrage as they once were.

    Peter Travers — Rolling Stone
