|Jeff Tremaine Director|
The first feature film spin-off from the MTV phenomenon; as Johnny Knoxville and crew humiliate and injure themselves and each other in a bombardment of juvenile pranks and potentially life-threatening stunts.
The final stunt for the movie was supposed to involve the entire cast performing a very painful Rube Goldberg machine that would launch Johnny Knoxville into a riverbed. However, due to the complete failure of each stunt not triggering the next, it was heavily edited to feature just the funnier segments of it in the credits.
The hair clipper scenes are accompanied by the famous "shower murder" music.

The next time, we can do... "Son of Jackass".
We don't have a cast associated with Jackass: The Movie.
The movie, simply, follows the original Jackass format of grown men performing dangerous stunts and pulling hidden-camera pranks on the unsuspecting public. This time, however, the jokes have the potential of being even more vulgar and dangerous due to the lack of censors. The film focuses on brand new bits, some unfit for television, as well as continuations on classic Jackass pranks.
Actor Johnny Knoxville is joined by a cast of skate punks, stuntmen, and other assorted ninnies. This includes professional skateboarder Bam Margera, his fellow CKY co-star Ryan Dunn, professional clown and stuntman Steve-O and dwarf skateboarder Jason "Wee Man" Acuna. Also in the group are close friends Chris Pontius, Preston Lacy, Dave England, and Ehren Mcghehey. The movie also includes other Jackass regulars Rabb Himself, Rake Yohn. Brandon DiCamillo, April and Phil Margera, and Manny Puig. The movie also includes a selection of special guests including Tony Hawk, Matt Hoffman, Rip Taylor, and Henry Rollins, to name a few.
they continue bring their crazy antics to West Chester, Los Angeles, New York
City, Seattle, Miami, parts of England, and even Tokyo.
"The movie is pretty much just like the show, only now we get to show whatever we want."
Following the end of the television show, Jackass: The Movie was meant to be the show's grand "farewell". This time around, however, the boys were given the freedom to film whatever they wanted without being held back by network censors. This allowed for the movie to have more vulgar stunts than those shown on the original program; something that was advertised on the film's poster.
As was the case of the show there was plenty of incompetence during filming due to the lack of experience with the new equipment. The boys experimented with different film formats, something visible during the hidden camera segments, and even ran into problems like not being able to shoot fog and lights at once. Other problems included the adjustment to treating the project like an actual film. Some members, like Bam, would go ahead and perform a stunt or other impulsive action without the direction of Tremaine.
However, there were moments of danger. Johnny Knoxville was almost killed twice during filming: both occurrences making it into the final film. One scene, removed from the theatrical version, required Knoxville to get shot with riot-control beanbags which had the potential of killing him if he were struck in the right place. Additionally, cameramen were sometimes in danger when getting certain shots, like being struck with bowling balls or being flung out of golf carts.
than that, the filming was like that of the actual show with only a few moments
of it being done on a larger scale. The opening and closing segments
incorporated special effects and used high-quality film. Additionally, make-up
became a big part of the project due to the idea of the old man pranks. Later
movies would incorporate Knoxville's old man character more often, since
it gave him the freedom to perform the sort of pranks that the show was able to
get away with in its early days, before the cast members became recognizable.
