Jackass: Number Two
Is there such a thing as Equus HIV? For the sake of Chris Pontius, a member of Johnny Knoxville’s Jackass troupe, I hope not. He’s the willing recipient of a “milk moustache,” the end product of a segment identified as “How to Milk a Horse,” just one of what the MPAA rating board describes as “extremely crude and dangerous stunts” (some of them obscene, most of them funny) in Jeff Tremaine’s sequel to his 2002 hit, itself spawned from the short-lived MTV series. Knoxville and his band of yahoos (Pontius, Bam Margera, Stephen “Steve-O” Glover, Preston Lacy, Ryan Dunn, Ehren McGhehey, Dave England, and Jason “Wee-Man” Acuña) should think twice before making Jackass: Number Three, lest they themselves become “short-lived.” Here, Steve-O nearly has his Steve Irwin moment after offering himself up as bait (complete with a hook through his cheek) and narrowly escaping the jaws of a mako shark. Jackass indeed.
