the Donkey The franchise is back and better than ever. Fooled forever is slated for theatrical release by Paramount Pictures today, February 4. This time around, the movie gets a nod of approval.
The film stars Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Chris Pontius, Dave England, Jason “Wee Man” Acuña, Danger Ehren and Preston Lacy, joined by newcomers Rachel Wolfson, Sean “Poopies” McInerny, Zach Holmes, rapper Jasper Dolphin and British rookie Eric Manaka.
Directed by Jeff Tremaine, the original Donkey the team returns for another round of the series’ signature absurdity, often involving increasing levels of danger – the key to laughter. This time, Johnny and the team push the limits even further. The film is produced by Spike Jonze, with Tremaine and Knoxville, generally the same teams we know from the show and movies.
The last time we had a Jackass movie was in 2010 3d donkey— more than 10 years ago. But Wolfson said it was worth the wait.
“It’s worth the wait because it’s a great movie,” Wolfson said. Highlights. “Being part of the new cast is so exciting, and I hope people see the camaraderie we all have.”
New York Times said the film was crafted with “sharp cinematography” to create “the most shocking theatrical experience since the legendary mid-1890s screening of ‘The Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat Station’ by the Lumière brothers. The “benevolent” sequel was considered a worthy, if not better, addition to the team’s repertoire.
Strangely, the original Donkey The franchise was partly inspired by the antics of gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson. Knoxville learned some of Thompson’s (often paranoid) self-defense tactics that turned into extra stunts, and his fellow skaters and daredevils joined in on the ride. The stunts they performed seemed to inspire other imitators on the internet. Donkey was an instant classic.
“Pain is so much fun because life is pain. Learning to laugh at that pain is what gets us through the tough times and the world needs to laugh more than ever.
The more pain, the funnier it was.
“Pain is so much fun, because life is pain,” says Wolfson. “Learning to laugh at this pain is what gets us through the tough times, and the world needs to laugh more than ever.” Yes, in the movie Wolfson dared to lick a stun gun, but no spoilers here.
Last May, Knoxville said in an interview with GQ this Fooled forever will be his last foray with the brand, so time will tell if it really is his last. Knoxville himself recruited Wolfson after discovering his peerless talent on instagram. Wolfson was already known for her cannabis-themed stand-up comedy, YouTube, and more.
For example, Highlights appropriately featured Wolfson in the July 2021 issue as “High Headliner”, or one of the top budding entertainment icons, and interviewed her in detail. “Women can be funny; we can smoke weed, she said. “We don’t just use cannabis as a fetish. There are a lot of medical reasons why cannabis is important for women in particular, and there are things that men will never go through, like menstruation or having a baby. I want to keep proving that women belong in cannabis and comedy.
Wolfson agreed to do the film with some reservations, but was willing to encounter scorpions and a taser, among other antics.
Some injuries were real. Knoxville, for example, suffered a broken wrist, broken rib, concussion and brain hemorrhage in stunts gone wrong. The new film, however, takes it a step further by exploring sobering topics like mortality and age. Bam Margera left the production team in February 2021, but the scenes he filmed were retained in the film.
Fooled forever is rated R for raw language, “miles” from male nudity and real pain. Find the film in a theater near you.
