Box Office - 10/15/2010 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he movie has enough going for it to satisfy JACKASS' legions of fans and make some new ones."
Los Angeles Times - 10/16/2010
"[The skits] are funny in their humiliating wince-y way....
Variety - 10/14/2010
"Few suffer as cheerfully for their art as Johnny Knoxville and his band of scatological stuntmeisters, and the gut-busting pleasure they take in every act of self-humiliation proves as infectious as ever in JACKASS 3D."
Movieline - 10/15/2010
"[M]any of the gags in JACKASS 3D show plenty of visual wit, if not brilliance..."
A.V. Club - 10/15/2010
"JACKASS 3-D is powered by a shamelessly regressive but infectious adolescent prankishness. Knoxville holds the whole scatological mess together with this irascible charm and leading-man charisma..."
Rolling Stone - 10/14/2010
"By using physical comedy out of silent movies and offering up their own flesh, blood and sinew, they invented their own kind of performance art..."
Washington Post - 10/15/2010 3 stars out of 4 -- "[A] touching ode to male friendship at its most primal....The atmosphere in the world of JACKASS is one of infectious bonhomie."
Entertainment Weekly - 10/21/2010
"[Knoxville] may be the purest, most devoted slapstick anarchist in comedy today....JACKASS 3D has the moments you crave, the ones that go beyond standard pain-freak buffoonery to attain a kind of gloriously demented, jaw-dropping daftness." -- Grade: B
Sight and Sound - 12/01/2010
"The movie is again a series of gags strung together, sometimes given titles, and they can be as abruptly funny as pratfalls and as cathartically satisfying as an unfolding dare."
Empire - 11/05/2010 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he wallops hit harder....The lads really have embraced 3D in a big way..."
Total Film - 01/01/2011 3 stars out of 5 -- "In places, such as the Busby Berkeley-ish opener, the 3D's beautiful, with paintballs exploding in impossible rainbows across naked torsos..."
The JACKASS pranksters are at it again in this third outing, presented for the first time, in some theaters, in 3D -- an effect that redefines the use of the in-your-face technology. Once again, Johnny Knoxville and his cohorts gather together and dream up new childish ways to make each other -- and their audience -- giggle uncontrollably. Whether it's pummeling one another in their groins or throwing together half-cooked skits that employ everything from costumes, sets, wild animals, and most often, feces, the boys are a wealth of "you shouldn't do this -- we're not even sure if we should" comedy. Jeff Tremaine returns to direct the MTV Films/Paramount Pictures production.
