Over the years, Miami has served as the backdrop for hundreds of Hollywood movies. In Celluloid City, we spotlight some of the classics shot right in our own backyard.
(Read our interview with Johnny Knoxville.)
In honor of this shameful pivotal moment in our nation's pop culture, this week's Celluloid City celebrates Jackass Number Two, a locally produced piece of crap.
As in the other Jackass installments and the TV show, there is no plot in Jackass Number Two. The film basically captures staged moments of a group of guys acting like, well jackasses. The pranks are centered around Johnny Knoxville, and his crew consists of Bam, Steve-O, Chris, and a bunch of other guys we have absolutely no interest in. I guess something should be said for the fact that these guys risk life and limb attempting these stunts. OK, we'll say it. You guys are really, really dumb.
