YMMV: Jackass
  • Dude, Not Funny!: The fanbase's reaction to Roger Ebert's tweet, "Friends don't let Jackasses drink and drive," immediately after Ryan Dunn's death.
  • Earworm:
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment:
    • In the DVD commentary of Jackass: The Movie, Johnny Knoxville makes fun of Ryan Dunn's poor driving skills.
    • Any car/vehicle stunts Ryan Dunn participated in.
    • The "Son of Jackass" scene at the end, which is meant to depict the cast — including Dunn — as eighty-year-old men.
    • In the season one DVD's commentary, an obviously drunk Steve-O jokes, "Hey guys, I think I might be drunk, I better go to rehab." Steve-O eventually ended up actually going to rehab to deal with his alcoholism (among other substance abuse problems).
  • Guilty Pleasure: The show is basically 30 minutes of guys hurting themselves for our, and their own, entertainment.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    Bam: Please, God, don't let there be a Jackass 3!
  • Ho Yay: The gayness of the show, especially when it comes to Chris Pontius and Johnny Knoxville. The series made Knoxville a gay idol.
    • Lampshaded in a deleted scene Bam warns the audience that the Dickhouse logo (a rainbow) will appear before homosexual scenes.
    Look away. CAUSE WE'RE GETTIN' GAY.
    • Bam later corkscrews into Wee Man's crotch, who was wearing a wig. Yeah.
    • The first few minutes of the intro to Jackass 3D consist of groin attacks/petting and ass-slapping in gay costumes set to the Dickhouse logo.
    • One instance of "Pontius playing baseball with his dick" had Bam slam into his crotch face-first.
    • The music video they made for Karazy is this.
    • If that wasn't enough, there's that supermodel-parody photoshoot they had for Rolling Stone, all huddled together... naked.
  • Jumping Off the Slippery Slope: Steve-O was going through this so much. He suffered from such a cocaine addiction that the other members felt he wasn't the same guy. It didn't help he tried to launch a comedy rap career and feel more down the slope when he kept becoming a tabloid for the media. He got better though.
    • Some believe Bam is going through this. Shortly after Dunn's death, his marriage with his childhood sweetheart, Missy (which he and MTV made an entire TV show about his wedding), collapsed and he ended up having three affairs. He and Missy then got divorced and got married with another woman later on. The incident, as well as him talking about it like winning a prize on The Howard Stern Show didn't help, resulting with him loosing fans.
  • Moral Event Horizon: The Beehive Limo Bait and Switch prank in the second movie may have been going too far, especially if one of the cast members had an unknown allergy to bees.
  • Nausea Fuel: Considering the point of the show, it's to be expected, but...
    • Hands-down, the most disgusting one ever was the tail end of the horse scene in Jackass Number Two a scene so bad that it made a crew member vomit on set. Chris Pontius drinks horse semen. It was even blurred out in the theatrical version. There, now do you still wish you wanted to know that?
    • Jackass 2.5 reveals they also splashed it on a cameraman. The container was washed out and replaced with water, mind you, but it still disgusted the rest of the crew.
    • Dave England shits on a toy house toilet, gets the same reaction of disgust. The cameraman dry retches rather painfully.
    • The poo volcano in Jackass 3D, which is about as shitty as it sounds.
    • The climax of Jackass 3D Steve-O is strapped into a porta-potty filled with all kinds of shit (literally) and flung high into the air. The cameras get covered in shit, there's a shit shower, it was so disgusting that nearly everyone puked..
    • The Sweatsuit Cocktail. Preston works out vigorously while wrapped in plastic wrap, and his resulting sweat (taken lovingly from his crotch and ass crack) is funneled into a cup. Which Steve-O then drinks. Remember Lance Bangs, the man who vomited during England's poop-encrusted adventures with a hardware store, a dollhouse, and during the horse scene? This scene causes Lance to throw up on his own camera.
    • England eats the ingredients of an omelet, then proceeds to vomit it back up. He then takes said vomit and cooks an omelet, which he eats. During the segment, Johnny Knoxville wears a Hazmat Suit. It's for humor value, but you kind of get where he's coming from.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Fatlip from The Pharcyde appears in an amazing slide down a subway escalator.
  • Tear Jerker: This video tribute to Ryan Dunn put out by Dickhouse Productions.
