Our Critics First Reaction to Jackass Forever

Here is what our Ripe Banana Critics are saying about the film:

Anthony Papetti

Banana Meter Rating: 87%

Lifelong fans will be thrilled to be back with the old gang. Mileage will vary for everyone, and this is certainly the most graphic of the films, but it makes you miss the days of hanging out with friends acting like jackasses

Jackass Forever is the comedy movie we needed right now. Big Shoutout to the Jackass crew for making us laugh for an hour and a half straight

How does one review what feels like a YouTube video that somehow made it into theaters? I’m not sure. I’ll just say I found myself laughing more at the side comments the Jackass crew made to each other rather than laughing at the actual stunts.

Hardcore fans of the series will definitely be laughing until their face hurt. For someone like me, who was not exposed to Jackass as a child, some of it will be funny, and some of it will feel like “why would you do that to yourself?” without delivering the laughs.

The amount of secondhand pain that I have after watching “Jackass Forever” is hard to put into words, but as someone who is by no means a fan of the franchise, I had a really fun time with. Above all else, that damn trailer will stop being played.

Jackass Forever is a self-proclaimed “final crusade” for the Jackass crew and it’ll honestly be difficult to watch them go.

The cast’s typical antics will be amusing enough for some, but anyone hoping for a deeper exploration into the group dynamic or how they’ve changed over the past ten years will be disappointed. Though the title “Jackass Forever” proudly points toward the group’s future, the fourth entry in this franchise feels too content with replicating the past.

Jackass Forever is the perfect return of our beloved crazy crew with new stunts and even new members. This is the beginning of a fresh new legacy that will have audiences wanting more!

In some small way, Jackass Forever stands as a portrait of evolving masculinity over the course of more than two decades. Or maybe I’m just a dumb dumb who really enjoys watching UFC Heavyweight Champ Francis Ngannou punch someone in the ding dong.

JACKASS FOREVER is everything one could want from this franchise at this point. Blending hysterical stunts with a wholesome perspective on time and aging, for fans of the series, this will be perfection!

Jackass Forever is an hour and a half of laughs thanks to Knoxville and company. Upping the pain and shock factor with new material while also bringing back stunts from previous installments. Fans of the franchise are sure to have a good time with this one.

Though the squad has gotten older, Jackass Forever proves that they can still bring shock and awe to both new and old fans. Nostalgia at its best.

To put it simply, it’s entertaining as f*ck. Jackass Forever is the perfect escape from reality. Not only will you laugh, but you will laugh until it hurts.
