    Overweight middle aged men trying to re-live their 20’s.

    Anyone who pays to see it will be the Jackass I’d say.

    Middle aged might be a stretch, Knoxville will be 50 when this comes out.

    "According to the Oxford English Dictionary middle age is between about 45 and 65"

    Explains why I saw Steve-o and Knoxville on separate interviews lately in the last few weeks. Starting the hype a bit early I guess.

    Huh, I would have said it was younger. Seems I'm still a young adult for another few years so

    Jackass had a time, and that time has long passed.

    In fairness given it's massive popularity I don't think they milked it too much. The last movie was nearly 10 years ago and it was their most successful.
    It is possible if Ryan Dunne hadn't died they would have done more in the years since.
    Happy enough with the news, however it will be interesting now that the likes of Steve-0 has grown up and sobered up will he still do the crazy stuff for the camera.
    Bam on the other hand seems to have gone off the rails all together in the years since the last movie and his mates Dunne's death. Lots of drugs and booze and is barely recognisable from his mid 00's heyday.

    Bam looks like his fat old man now.

    Unfortunately for him that is true. He's also made his booze and drugs issues very public by cashing in on it going on a VH1 rehab reality tv show and Dr.Phil. Real bottom of the barrel stuff. As well as being filmed on camera phones in the middle of various benders making a fool of himself. Pretty sad stuff.

    Is this one these brands like Johnny English or Top Cat that nobody in the west cares about anymore, but remains hugely popular elsewhere like Asia? Some fat cheque from China encouraging the group to form again for one last, middle age hurrah? And being 39 I guess I myself am on the cusp of buying that sports car :D

    As said, Jackass had its time and pop culture has moved far past the simple pleasures of watching grown men injure themselves; we live in a world of Logan Paul now. Weep for us.

    I enjoyed the previous three, I'd be willing to give this a shot.

    I'd guess it's just cheap to make.

    So, Boards' main demographic then?

    2 years to make, wtf? A month would be more like it.

    Yeah seems like the booze is going to get the better of him, just like it did his uncle. I doubt any of them will want to work with him at this stage anyway, he seems to have burned a few bridges.
