Where does Jackass Forever land on the Banana Meter?

Hello and welcome to the opening weekend of the Banana Meter! For those not aware of how this works, let me explain it to you. First, our critics check out a film. Then, they rate it on our scale of 0-100%, we gather the percentage from all of your critics and that’s how we get our rating on the Banana Meter.

What is the Banana Meter scale, you ask? 

When a film hits above 85% or higher from our critics, it means it hit Bonafide Bananas status.
When a film hits between 55-84% or higher from our critics, it means it hit Ripe status.
When the film hits under 54%, it means it hit Sour Status.

Our first film to hit the Banana Meter is Jackass Forever

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

Banana Meter Rating: 75%

It is a complete wave of nostalgia and one of the most entertaining movies in years. Knoxville and the crew just make you feel like you’re experiencing the stunt performing magic for the first time all over again. I felt like I was 13-years-old watching them on MTV again. I didn’t realize the connection I had to them until they brought up that they’ve been doing this for 20 years.

For the sake of the laughs, for our pure enjoyment, Johnny Knoxville has delivered once again in Jackass Forever. That’s the America I know. The land of the free and the home of these brave Jack-asses.

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

I may not be the biggest Jackass fan in the world, but I can’t say I didn’t enjoy myself watching this. Definitely, moments that made me squirm, but I not only laughed a lot but really enjoyed the camaraderie the group shared together.

Banana Meter Rating: 75%

Even though the film does have a sense of finality and serves as a reflection on how surprisingly enduring the franchise is, it’s unlikely to sway those who do not enjoy this sort of comedy. That said, I found plenty of enjoyment laughing alongside these wild individuals, at least when I wasn’t cringing.

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.

The fact that despite so much changing in those years, the love that fans share for these chaotic lunatics is stronger than ever. A true testament to them and their legacy. Although Knoxville has said that they are simply just getting too old to carry on with these high octane stunts for any more Jackass projects, this doesn’t feel like a send-off for the Jackass family. Instead, it feels like more of what audiences know and love, which is exactly what we all need right now.

‘Forever’ is pure nihilistic glee – just as a good ‘Jackass’ film should be.
