Apparently, it's been 10 years since their previous film. I never watched the Jackass TV show, but grew quite attached to their films. Though not very cinematic, nor very highbrow, there's a certain dedication to joy and entertainment that's rarely found outside their productions. This fifth entry is no different.
It's a little strange that a "film" like this can secure such a broad release, but here we are. There's no plot to speak of, just a succession of pranks and crazy ideas, strung together for maximum laughs. The only constant is that the prankster love to outprank each other, which leads to some pretty insane setups.
The nice thing about this fifth entry is that they had quite the budget, and they used it wisely. From the hilarious Godzilla intro to the ball sack punching device and the explosive finale, no costs were spared to make the stunts stand out. That and the fact that watching professional stuntmen get crazy and dumb is quite fun, make this a fun watch.
