Johnny Knoxville isn’t 50 years-old, as IMDB corroborates. But he might as well be considering that he’s been getting tazed in the balls for the last 10 years. I mean, seriously, at what point does it get old?

The first Jackass came out in 2002. Jackass Number Two came out in 2006 and now in 2010 we get Jackass 3D. It’s kind of interesting how all three movies are evenly spaced out by four years a piece. I suppose that’s how long it takes to get a clean bill of health from your physical therapist.

I can’t help but feel that Jackass 3D was rushed to production in order to take advantage of the 3D trend in theaters right now. For some reason I can easily picture some executive at MTV cynically pitching the idea. “Hey! Everyone loves 3D and this would be the third Jackass movie – we can work it right into the title!”

Part of me wants to see Jackass 3D largely because I remember what an amazing experience it was to watch the original Jackass in a packed theater on a Friday night back in 2002. People grossed out and howling, gasping in shock – it was great.

I think I must have blocked out Jackass Number Two, though. Because when I asked Cami if she had any interest in watching Jackass 3D this weekend, her opposition to the idea was much stronger than presented in the comic.

“I liked the first Jackass,” she said. “But I remember sitting in the theater for the second movie thinking this was the dumbest waste of time I ever saw. I nearly threw up a couple of times.”

In fairness, she was pregnant with Henry at the time. But, still.

I guess I’m kind of afraid of how Jackass 3D will leverage 3D technology. Innately, you know it’s going to be horrible. And as much as I had a good time with the first movie, I know I don’t need to see a boil on Chris Pontius’s backside in 3D. I really don’t.

Sorry again for the late comic. I’ve just been having a rough couple of weeks. First we moved, then I got sick, then we started unpacking and I got sick again. Our house is a mess and Cami and I are breaking down. We work all day, come home and take care of the kids and then you only have a couple of hours to put things away before you have to go to bed and do it all over again.

In our old house, I would hang out in my office all the time. Now the ONLY time I’m in my office is when I’m working on the comic. It’s kind of a drag. I’m hoping we can fall into a routine soon. Until then, I continue to appreciate your patience and understanding.

In the meantime, how is everyone feeling about Jackass 3D? Are you making plans to see it this weekend or are you kind of nervously anticipating it like I am? Leave your comments below!
