It’s with great reservation that I’m recommending the latest from Johnny Knoxville and his band of crazies (the usual suspects return: a newly sober Steve-O, Wee Man, Chris Pontius and the rest) — Jackass 3D made almost $120 mil at the box office, meaning plenty of people were interested in watching guys fart into musical instruments, pee on each other and get knocked over by giant mechanical hands (okay, that WAS pretty damn funny). The “poo de grace,” so to speak, is the big final stunt, dubbed the “Poo Cocktail Supreme,” which involves sending Steve-O skyward via giant slingshot inside a crap-filled outhouse in what has to be the grossest employment of 3D ever. If this is your cup of tea (and even if not, there’s are a lot of practical jokes to make you giggle), give it a gander. Extras: Enough outtakes and deleted scenes to make another (albeit less funny) movie, and a fairly interesting making-of featurette.
