For better or worse, MTV funded a bumbling case of idiots to play with poo and dress in a variety of men's undergarments. Never before has arrested development looked so much fun as the cast of Jackass make it. From stapling Jackass on their rear-end to mounting magazine stands in gorilla costumes, Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, and the rest of the gang show us what it takes be a Jackass!

With the legal hassles over Jackass: Volume 1 finally out of the way, Paramount is pulling out the stops and releasing the Jackass Box Set - complete with all 3 Volumes(including the never released Volume 1) As well as a 4th bonus disc.

1 Star for the box set, 5 stars for the show Apr 25, 2006
By Leland Palmer
Don't get burned. Here's why:
- Incomplete. A lot of classic clips are missing from this set. Blatant Example: The booklet has pictures and a small writeup on the "Keep God out of California" skit - but reading about it in the booklet is all you'll get to do, they didn't put the skit on the DVDs. Read the rest of the reviews here for just a few of the dozens of major skits you won't get to see with this set.
- Censorship. I want to hear every damn word. With the stunts these guys have been pulling for years, swear words and the occasional private patch are the last things Paramount needs to worry about protecting us from. I held off on buying Volume 2 and Volume 3 because they were bleeped and blurred, and I would have passed on this box set too if I had taken the time to research this. Shame on me.
- Format. It's a mess, tossed together like a CKY disc. Still fun to watch, but it should have been kept in it's original episode format, in order of air date. Don't get any expectations of bouncing on the couch in time to the awesome intro theme, or being welcomed to the episode by Knoxville like you may be used to.
I'm ticked that I dropped a hefty chunk of money on a set that was put together with no regard for the show's legacy. Material is either missing, edited, or censored - I'll bet those Paramount bigwigs even censored the missing skits before they dumped them from the DVD set. What a waste of something beautiful.

True Jackass fans will be more frustrated than delighted Oct 01, 2006
By Callaway Cass
I don't mind that the original bleeped-out words are still bleeped on the DVDs... that's how the show was. (For example, I think the Viva La Bam DVDs would, for the most part, be funnier with the original tv bleeps.)
I don't mind that the original blacked-out and pixelated views are there... that's how the show was (and trust me, we're better for it).
With that being said, here's the real problem -- this is not presented in an as-aired episode format. Of course I should have realized that "volume" does not mean "season", but "season" is what everyone expects from a tv show DVD. That's how every other tv show is realeased; even the Wildboyz and Viva la Bam DVDs are presented in episode format.
This box set lacks because the bits are somehow funnier when viewed in context of the original episode. The recurring themes within the episodes are funnier. It's also much more convenient to sit down and watch an episode or two whenever you want. Instead, it all gets lost in the 2-hour marathon format of each "volume". Additionally, as many reviewers have mentioned, many of the classic bits are absent from this set.
Bottom line is, before you purchase this set, realize that many of the bits you remember may be missing. Also realize that each "volume" is a marathon of strung-together bits, and you will not see the actual episodes.
I suggest that die-hard Jackass fans actually not buy this set, because I think you will be more frustrated and upset in the end. Because of the "volume" format, you will probably only watch each disc once, then quickly retire it to the shelf. I regret that someone spent some good money buying this as a gift for me. I would gladly return it for only half it's original price if I could.

MTV's Finest Show Ever Dec 20, 2005
By Mr. Bey
I like a lot of MTV's shows but I have never laughed so hard at one of their shows than I did while watching Jackass. I have volumes two and three already and I dying without volume one which is the best in the series. Not only does this set have volume one but it contains updated versions of two and three. Two and three had pretty lousy special features compared to the movie's bonus material but the set blows those away.
If every box set had this many special features than every DVD would be such a great value. The set tells us what our favorite troublemakers are doing now in a 40 minute documentary. Not only that but it has deleted scenes, television appearance, and the Cribs special which was very good. I was so surprised at how great these features were. I know some skits aren't included but I'm just happy that they made up for it with all the new bonus features. This set is perfect for anyone who loved Jackass and I highly recommend it. Great job Paramount.

Don't Worry Jackass Fans - This Box Set is VERY Worth the Purchase Dec 08, 2005
By Jon Man 5000
Okay let me first address two things :
1) Paramount did NOT refuse to release full seasons of the Jackass show, they were not ALLOWED to for legal reasons that none of us will probably ever know. Anyway, if they COULD, they WOULD - I don't know why the last reviewer mentioned greed. Paramount would make a buttload of money if they released full seasons of Jackass. They simply cannot - legal bull...
2) The "Never Before Seen Footage" is - really - Never Before Seen Jackass footage, not CKY footage used under the Jackass title.
Also, DON'T BE MISLED or misunderstand - this DVD is NOT uncensored. Cuss words (both on the show and the commentaries) are 'bleeped' out and all blurs remain intact. Every once in a while in the commentary a cuss word misses the censors - but that doesn't make it UNcensored. So don't think the F***s and S***s will all now be audible - they won't be. Nonetheless...
This DVD Is GREAT!!! And I am guessing that any skits that weren't released on the DVD weren't released for - again - legal reasons. The 'Keep God Out Of Califonia' skit probably couldn't be legally cleared for release on the DVD, that simple.
The bonus features are what MAKE this box set. Disc one has like 50+ skits never released. Discs 2 and 3 are revamped too. And I mean, come on - the WHOLE Gumball Rally, cast commentaries that (when you can understand what they are actually saying) are hilarious, and a "Where are They Now" feature that is really cool. Oh yeah - and even more on top of that. If you liked Jackass but wanted more when you were watching the show - here's your ticket in.
The DVD is GREAT, like I said. Well worth the buy. And if you are a fan of Jackass (or just stoopid TV) this is most CERTAINLY worth the buy.
