Jackass: The Movie directed by Jeff Tremaine was released on October 25, 2002 with the tagline "Do not attempt this at home." It is a continuation of the stunts and pranks by the various characters of the MTV television series Jackass.
Plot: Stunt by stunt
After introducing the warnings and seeing Chris Pontius in a spaceman suit, we see the whole gang in a giant shopping trolley going down a bridge. They all get showered with bricks, and, after introducing everyone and getting rid of Ehran, Dave and Preston, the rest of them go flying into a giant fruit and cart stall and get hurt badly.
Johnny Knoxville dresses up very shadily in a long coat, goes into a car shop and rents out a nice, clean, white car. Then he takes it to a garage and the guys there take out everything except the shell of the car, one seat and the engine. He then has a smash-up-derby with a load of pros, and the car gets completely wrecked; one of the other cars goes through the windscreen with the wheel very close to his head! They then take the car back to the shop and try to get away without paying for all the damages that they caused. There are good quotations throughout, for example, ‘I hit a dog’, ‘I completely black out when I drink’ and ‘That's just paper work (sounding drunk)’. (The first time that Johnny almost killed himself whilst filming Jackass: The Movie.)
The Muscle Stimulator
Chris Pontius, Johnny, Dave and Ehran use muscle stimulators in very weird places in the body: anywhere apart from where it should be. Initially, Ehran uses them on his chest, then Dave puts them on his hands, then Dave puts one on his guch, and lastly Chris Pontius puts them on his nuts.
Sweaty Fat Fucks
Bam and his two friends, Matt Hoffman and Tony Hawk, dress up in large clothes and start skating (and falling) around a skate park, getting hurt and snapping boards, one of them getting concussion.
Golf Car Antics
The crew dress up as stereotypical English golfers, get loads of golf carts and trash a mini-golf course. They then take the animals from the mini-golf onto the larger golf course and start doing jumps over them into the bunkers, with the golf carts. (The second time Johnny almost killed himself, when Ryan turned the cart turned over and Johnny got another bump on the head.)
Chris Pontius dresses in his party boy clothes and goes into a shop. He tests the Japanese stereos, and as they play he starts stripping down to his g-string. He then does an exotic dance for the store clerk, who calls the security guard; Chris then steals the guard's hat and continues to dance.
Steve-O and the crew go to a zoo and set up a tightrope over the alligator pool. Steve-O decides to walk over it wearing only a jockstrap and a helmet. He soon finds that he can't walk on a tightrope and falls off into the pool of alligators; instead of giving up, Chris puts a chicken up Steve-O’s ass to entice the alligators into biting it. One does, and Steve-O runs so fast that he collides with another alligator!
Bam (wearing some haggard gear) goes into his parent’s room at a very early hour of the morning, and sets off a large number of fireworks in a trash can to wake them all up. Then later, as Phil goes to work Bam lets off some more fireworks in his van, and shoots a gun loaded with confetti at the van as well; Phil almost has a heart attack.
After seeing Bam, Johnny and Spike getting dressed up as old people, we see Johnny going into a shop, putting things into his coat and trying to walk out of the shop. The shopkeeper starts taking things out of his coat, so Johnny takes more until the shopkeeper kicks him out. As he leaves, he steals the stand outside the shop, and the shopkeeper becomes really angry.
Hardware Store Crap
Dave England delays defecation for a day then goes into a shop to defecate on the floor. But on the way he ends up taking a giant shit in his pants and it gets everywhere! Lance throws up and films himself doing so. On another day, Dave does the same again and this time actually pooed into a toilet. The owners look very shocked.
Fatty Fall Down
Preston Lacy (complete with food) sits down on a bench. Just as someone walks by, the bench breaks and Preston goes smashing into the ground and his pants rip wide open, much to the amazement of the passer-by.
Dimitri films himself going up behind random people and clipping their hair. He gets Bam, Benzo, Matt Hoffman, and Johnny.
Ehran McGhehey dresses up as a mouse and throws himself into hundreds of set mousetraps, then Johnny throws one and it lands on his crotch.
Chris Rabb puts on a large pair of pants on bungee ropes and jumps off a tree. The first time, the bungee rope breaks and he goes crashing to the ground. He tries it again and hangs there for ages.
Riot Control Test
Johnny Knoxville goes to the valley to get shot with a beanbag rifle projectile. Then he shows how it looks 2 days later, the bruise covering nearly the whole of his stomach.
Ass Kicked by Girl
Ryan has a kickboxing match with a female Japanese professional kick boxer, Nakoki.
Tropical Pole Vaulting
Steve-O pole vaults over palm trees, tables, and volleyball nets. Finally, he jumps off a bridge into the sea.
Loads of the crew dress up in panda suits and run all over Japan skating, jumping through and over things, drinking booze, eating bamboo, and going up to random Japanese people.
Johnny Knoxville goes to England to skate down hills. Already hard enough, he makes it harder by putting bottle rockets on the back of them. He does this three times, the last time putting twice as many in the back.
Roller Disco Truck
Bam, Steve-O, Chris P, Johnny and Ryan all dress up in 70’s gear and go roller skating in the back of a truck. Preston starts the truck up and drives around corners so every one falls over.
Steve-O gets lots of wassabi, and snorts all of it before vomiting over everything.
Rick Kossic goes around in a sumo diaper carrying a gong, and Johnny Knoxville hits the gong in front of random people. One time, Rick lifts the gong a bit high and Johnny hits him in the nuts, and Chris P takes his diaper.
April Says Fuck
Since they no longer had to bleep cuss words, Bam promises that he will get April to say fuck. Bam and Jess put a sedated alligator into April’s kitchen. When she comes home, she sees it and starts screaming "Is it real, is it real?!" and then she says "That’s the scariest fucking thing I ever saw."
Clyde Singleton and Eric Koston teach Johnny Knoxville how to 50-50 grind a very long rail. Johnny almost makes it but falls off right at the end.
Johnny gets Ryan to give him paper cuts between the webbings of his fingers and his toes. Lance vomits because he ate pepperoni pizza and he’s a vegetarian. Then Steve-O does a paper cut on the corner of his mouth.
Department Store Boxing
Johnny Knoxville has a boxing match with Butterbean, knocks Johnny out and hits his head on the corner of a shop display unit. He falls unconscious and snores, so they take him to the hospital. (The third time that Johnny almost kills himself.)
Whale Shark Gummer
Chris Pontius and Steve-O put shrimps in netting trousers whilst wearing them. They go into the ocean and 30” whale sharks eat the shrimps from their crotches.
Johnny Knoxville goes to California and gets swept away by a large amount of water.
Off Road Tattoo
Jeff Tremaine tries to give Steve-O a smile face tattoo while in an off-road buggy on a BMX track. By the end of it, instead of a smile tattoo he had more holes in him than Swiss cheese! Another man drives the car and Ryan was there for moral support. (He was the original talent for this piece but he trades one with Steve-O for the butt X-ray.)
Steve-O and Chris Pontius want to warm themselves up by lighting fireworks off various parts of their bodies: Steve-O’s buttocks, Chris’ penis, then both at once. The last one almost hits Loomis in the face.
Ryan Dunn rides his BMX and tries to pull Preston off a settee, Preston gets hurt falling off the settee and Ryan lands his bike in a pile of cacti.
Yellow Snow Cone
Ehran gets snow in a paper cone, packs it in, pees over it, then eats it. Dave England kicks him in the nuts for being a prick!
Golf Course Air Horn
Dave, Ehran and Johnny hide in some bushes on a golf course. Every time someone tries tee off they blow the air horn to put them off. One guy got so mad that he threw his golf club at them; another one hits a ball in their direction.
Johnny and Bam dress all in black (to imitate burglars) and get a bag of fake diamonds. They drop in from the roof of a shop, and a man working there looks at them and runs out of the door - they had to try to stop him phoning the police, because he thought it was real.
(Ryan Dunn traded this one with Steve-O, as Steve-O’s father said he would disown him.) Ryan gets a little blue toy car, puts it in a condom, and then inserts it into his rectum. He then goes to a doctor and the doctor takes an X-ray of him. The car shows up clearly.
Son of Jackass
The guys all dress up as old people and stumble around a place that looks like a building site. They then blow everyone up. Starting with Ehran, then Ryan, then Dave, then Wee Man. Preston gets run over by a truck, and Chris Pontius gets eaten by a tiger. Then, just when Johnny and Steve-O thought that they were safe, Johnny is flattened by a large shed, leaving only Steve-O to say: "Yeah Dude".
