"JACKASS 2.5" is made up of extra footage and interviews from "JACKASS 2." This kind of (typically disgusting)humor is an acquired taste, but it's hard for anyone not to laugh at one of the gang dressed up as a gorilla on top of an outhouse batting his arms at radio-controlled airplanes. It's just side-splitting and even a bit ingenious! Other bits, including a bed of nails filled with cobras, gags with snapping turtles, etc., get tedious in the same way as the previous "JACKASS" film and series could get.
But, fans of the "JACKASS 2" film will enjoy the majority of extra footage used here. Although certainly not recommended for those unfamiliar with this kind of self-emasculating humor, those who are fans will find this a worthy addition to their collection.
PARAMOUNT has provided the correct 1.85:1 aspect ratio, with 16:9 enhancement, for this release. The image varies in quality, sometimes looking quite good, with minimal noise and decent color, and other times looking dull and filled with grain. This is due to the original source material.
PARAMOUNT has provided a Dolby Digital mix with no sense of separation. There are lengthy featurettes included.
