Movies Like Jackass You Should Watch Next

"Jackass" has come a long way since its three-season run on MTV. What started as a bizarre show with a cult following has since turned into mainstream success to the tune of four feature-length films. Each movie contains virtually the same elements, as Johnny Knoxville and his companions attempt crazy stunts and pranks, all in the name of a laugh. In each project, they test the boundaries of the human body and good taste while performing ridiculous stunts, with outlandish pranks included as well. While there's nothing quite like "Jackass," similar movies and shows have spawned since its creation. If you fancy the absurdity that "Jackass" brings to the screen, then we might suggest a few other movies that present similar energy as the "Jackass" franchise.

Once you've made your way through the "Jackass" movies, which include "Jackass: The Movie," "Jackass Number Two," "Jackass 3D," and "Jackass Forever," as well as the TV series, there are plenty of other titles you should check out next. While there can only be one "Jackass" franchise, here are movies like the stunt and prank franchise that started it all. So prepare that popcorn, spruce up your favorite seat, and get ready to laugh.

Action Point

"Action Point" is a great place to start after you've finished the "Jackass" movies as the film stars "Jackass" co-creator Johnny Knoxville. Still not convinced? Fellow "Jackass" alum Chris Pontius also makes an appearance. The film follows the titular theme park that features "Jackass" style stunts, yet it revolves around a fictional narrative: to keep the park afloat as a state-of-the-art amusement park opens nearby, D.C. Carver (Knoxville) creates a wild theme park that's, to say the least, unsafe.

Though the movie didn't triumph at the box office, it has plenty of laughable moments –– if you crave outrageous stunts, that is. But alas, less-than-stellar reviews, as seen on Rotten Tomatoes, tend to come with the territory of movies that don't fit into a typical box. Nevertheless, "Action Point" is an ideal watch for "Jackass" fans, especially those who enjoyed "Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa," as it features a fleshed-out narrative while real stunts ensue along the way, staying true to the "Jackass" brand.

Bad Trip

"Bad Trip" is a hidden camera comedy film that follows two friends, Chris Carey (Eric André) and Bud Malone (Lil Rel Howery). The duo embarks on a road trip from Florida to New York City, and events don't go as smoothly as planned. For one thing, they steal a car that belongs to Bud's sister, Trina (Tiffany Haddish), for the road trip. Trina just so happens to be a criminal who is more than willing to track the pair down to retrieve what's hers. This epic road trip is all in the name of love, yet, as a hidden camera comedy film, outrageous pranks ensue.

The strong casting of "Bad Trip" helped the film earn mostly positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. Though the pranks will have audience members in tears from laughing so much, the performances of Eric André, Lil Rel Howery, and Tiffany Haddish steal the show. Did we mention the pranks are pulled on an unsuspecting public? That specific formula, whether a succinct narrative is involved or not, tends to make events even more absurd –– in all the right ways.


Speaking of pranks being pulled on an unsuspecting public, "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan" is a mockumentary film that pushes the limits. The movie is offensive yet hilarious –– and it received overwhelmingly positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes from audiences and critics alike.

The movie follows a reporter from Kazakhstan, Borat (Sacha Baron Cohen), who travels to America to report on the country. Instead, he falls in love with actress Pamela Anderson and goes on a quest to marry her. "Borat" isn't meant to be taken seriously, though the innocent bystanders that get caught up in the action aren't quite in on the joke.

If audience members are fans of the first "Borat" film, then "Brüno," another mockumentary starring Cohen, is an ideal choice. Of course, "Borat Subsequent Moviefilm," the sequel to the first "Borat" film, is another obvious selection. However, starting with the original "Borat," which earned $262 million worldwide at the box office against an $18 million budget, and it also received some attention during award season as it was nominated for an Academy Award for best adapted screenplay.

Impractical Jokers: The Movie

There's nothing quite like having a close-knit group of friends who challenge one another –– they help each other burst out of their comfort zones and live life to the fullest. In a roundabout way, the "Impractical Jokers" crew is one such friend group. "Impractical Jokers: The Movie," similar to "Jackass," got its start on television and a big-screen appearance was only a matter of time.

Enter "Impractical Jokers: The Movie," a reality comedy film that follows long-running improv group The Tenderloins (Brian Quinn, James Murray, Sal Vulcano, and Joe Gatto) doing what they do best: pulling pranks at the suspense of an unaware public audience. Though the movie didn't necessarily find praise from critics on Rotten Tomatoes, audience members have been much more gracious with their ratings. Yet if you're a fan of "Jackass" –– and especially if you're a follower of "Impractical Jokers" –– then this 2020 movie is worth a watch.

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa

"Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa" features Johnny Knoxville dressed up as Irving Zisman, an elderly man who tends to be inappropriate in public because, as the thought process goes, elderly people can get away with anything. Naturally, outrageous pranks in public follow, and an unsuspecting audience doesn't know Knoxville is playing Irving, nor that a movie is being shot. Nevertheless, the film follows Irving, who's on a road trip with his grandson, Billy (Jackson Nicoll), who is the perfect complement to Irving. It doesn't get any more heartwarming than that!

Not only was "Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa" a box office hit, but the film was even nominated for an Academy Award for best makeup and hairstyling. If audiences enjoyed this perfectly splendid movie, then they'll be happy to learn that a "Bad Grandpa .5" version, which includes unused footage from "Bad Grandpa," is also available for viewing.

Movie 43

Depending on who you ask, "Movie 43" is arguably one of the worst films of all time or a diamond in the rough. The movie holds a single-digit Rotten Tomatoes score, yet it has a dynamite cast. Just to give audiences a taste of the star power, the anthology comedy film stars Kristen Bell, Halle Berry, Gerard Butler, Seth MacFarlane, Richard Gere, Terrence Howard, Emma Stone, Jason Sudeikis, Uma Thurman, Kate Winslet, and more. Indeed, it's flooded with A-listers. One of the storylines even features Johnny Knoxville for good measure.

Although not every segment sticks the landing, the absurd storylines that make up "Movie 43" are so awful that they're almost good. If you can't hang on for nearly 100 minutes, we understand. But if you like absurd humor, then "Movie 43" might be a home run. If nothing else, it's amazing to see some of Hollywood's finest sharing the screen in a movie this unique.

Natural Born Pranksters

"Natural Born Pranksters" features YouTube all-stars Roman Atwood, Dennis Roady, and Vitaly Zdorovetskiy making their way to the big screen with larger pranks than ever. If you crave pranks and stunts in spades, then this is a perfect movie to include during your watch party.

With that said, the film's stars aren't afraid to push the envelope, and the scenes that ensue aren't for everyone. Without giving too much away, there's a prank that involves a person getting badly burned while visiting a tanning salon. Not only does that sound horrific, but it must have been awful for the unsuspecting audience to witness. Atwood, Roady, and Zdorovetskiy know how to get under people's skin — and make bystanders extremely uncomfortable in the process. All the same, there's an art to a good prank, as the intention is not to be too cruel while still shocking the prankee in question.

Nitro Circus: The Movie

"Nitro Circus: The Movie" proves that if a TV series attracts enough attention, it's only a matter of time before it's turned into a movie. The film follows Travis Pastrana, a professional motorsports competitor and stunt performer, and his uber-talented friends pushing the limits of stunts. Though most of the performers are qualified for the stunts, that doesn't make them any easier to perfect. If you're a fan of the genre, then you very well could be entertained for the entirety of the film, but it's important to note that, like "Movie 43," "Nitro Circus: The Movie" holds a single-digit score on Rotten Tomatoes. Oddly enough, its audience score contradicts that rating.

In case "Jackass" fans are wondering, there is a bit of a "Jackass" crossover, as Johnny Knoxville is an executive producer of the original show, "Nitro Circus," and he also makes a brief appearance in the movie.

Scary Movie

"Scary Movie," for better or worse, is nothing like "Jackass." It's a slasher parody film that pokes fun at a plethora of films. For example, "Scary Movie" starts by parodying "I Know What You Did Last Summer" as a group of teenagers accidentally hit a man with their car. They then dump the body and promise never to bring the occurrence up again. However, throughout the scene, it's evident that the creators are making fun of "I Know What You Did Last Summer." When the movie picks up a year later, the "Scream" aspects come into play as a person wearing a Ghostface mask and robe is after them.

"Scary Movie" was a box office success to the tune of $278 million worldwide against a $19 million budget, and, naturally, four sequels ensued. Yet if you're a fan of parodies, and the weird humor that "Jackass" brings to the table, "Scary Movie" is a must-watch film of the genre.

The Dudesons Movie

Pleasantly similar to "Jackass," "The Dudesons Movie" follows a group of Finnish friends, Jarno Leppälä, Jukka Hildén, Jarno Laasala, and Hannu-Pekka Parviainen, who push it to the limit with wild stunts. In fact, Bam Margera, Steve-O, and other "Jackass" alums make an appearance. For all it's worth, The Dudesons also appeared in "Jackass 3D." These crossovers demonstrate that each group is in awfully similar lines of work, and that, in a way, The Dudesons could even be considered a part of the "Jackass" crew.

Although the movie (at the time of this writing) doesn't have a Rotten Tomatoes score, it does hold a pretty solid audience rating. Beyond that, "The Dudesons Movie" did earn the people's choice award at Finnish Jussi Awards. If you're a fan of outrageous stunts, then "The Dudesons Movie" is an obvious choice. It might even feel like a "Jackass" spinoff to fans.

The Ringer

"The Ringer," to say the least, isn't for everyone as it can be viewed as offensive. The film follows Steve Barker (Johnny Knoxville), a man who needs to come up with a plan to alleviate his debt. So Steve settles on not only competing in the Special Olympics as a participant, fixing the games as well. That storyline is more than enough to turn away most audience members, which we totally understand. Neither here nor there, Brian Cox, who plays Steve's dad, Gary, and Katherine Heigl, who appears as Lynn, also star in the film.

"The Ringer," unsurprisingly, given its content, didn't receive the best Rotten Tomatoes score ever, but it did receive a solid audience score on the site. Given the film's controversial subject, it's easy to overlook "The Ringer," but it, above all else, treats people with disabilities as people first. The film is, overall, a positive movie.

Trailer Park Boys: The Movie

If you've never seen Ricky, Julian, and Bubbles in action, then you're in for a treat –– and "Trailer Park Boys: The Movie" is a good place to start your journey. It's based, of course, on the popular show "Trailer Park Boys," which is a Canadian mockumentary TV series. As usual, the boys are up to no good and are in search of one final hurrah so they can finally retire and live peaceful lives in the trailer park.

Whether you're a fan of the TV series that started it all or the genre, "Trailer Park Boys: The Movie" follows pleasantly in the footsteps of the show. If you enjoy this movie, then you're in luck as you'll have plenty of "Trailer Park Boys" material at your disposal, including the original series and an animated series.

While there can only be one "Jackass," hopefully these movies will give fans a little more weird, outlandish, and borderline inappropriate humor to enjoy.
