    'Jackass' Out-Grosses Its Competition

    The Johnny Knoxville stunt-fest takes in $28.1 million in its opening weekend.

    Ah, fall. It's time for studios and filmgoers to turn their attentions to prestigious, Oscar-worthy productions.

    Well, almost time.

    Paramount Pictures' gross-out stunt fest "Jackass: Number Two" thrashed the competition at the weekend box office, hauling in $28.1 million in the U.S. and Canada, according to studio estimates Sunday, while Sony Pictures' ambitious political drama "All the King's Men" was a major disappointment.

    The R-rated "Jackass: Number Two" averaged $9,188 per theater at 3,059 locations, luring an audience of mostly males under the age of 25. It outdid its predecessor from four years ago, "Jackass: The Movie," by about 25 percent.

    "This movie embraces exactly what it is," said Rob Moore, Paramount's president of worldwide marketing and distribution. "If you're a college student in your early 20s, it's for you. It's absolutely not for your parents."

    Starring Johnny Knoxville and the rest of the "Jackass" troupe, the movie was marketed online and on the MTV Networks, Paramount's sibling at Viacom Inc., in a campaign flaunting the shock value and scathing reviews of its forerunner.

    After an opening-day gross that matched its $11.6-million production budget, the sequel looks sure to secure a tidy profit, just as the original did. Moore was encouraged by the movie's 14 percent drop in revenue from Friday to Saturday, compared with 20 percent for the original in October 2002.

    "Jackass: The Movie," derived from a TV show aimed at the skating culture, grossed $22.8 million in its first weekend and went on to rack up $64.3 million in the U.S. and Canada during its full run. If the sequel, which has garnered surprisingly warm reviews, grosses the same multiple of its debut weekend, it could end up at nearly $80 million.

          One day, there will be a class called "The Downfall of Western Society" and it will not talk of wars or famine or disease. It will talk of Jackass, and Jessica Simpson, and Snoop.

          I, too, weep for society.

            Actually it's more a comment on the state of the flim industry as of late.

            People rather watch a series of segments that you and your dumb buddies could replicate in a drunken stupor and post on YouTube rather than an actual movie.

                I saw this movie this past weekend, and it was funny as hell. It's actually a film I plan on paying to see again. It was great!

                    How is Hell funny?














                    Anyway, I saw it. If anyone else goes, don't buy popcorn. For the first time in my life I, quite literally, lost my appetite. Crazy stuff, funny but crazy.
                    What an idiot....

                    Yeah, I do that Twitter thing.

                      I...hate...Jackass.
                      And my hubby loves it.
                      *sigh*
                      I cant believe it was so successful. Wait, I do.
                      Hopefully they all came out this weekend, and it will disappear.

Actually, I'm scared to ask that. And I'm with Ladyalmalthea...my husband actually wants to see this movie. ~sigh~
