Are you ready to catch the fourth installment of the Jackass saga, Jackass Forever? Well, we have good news, as today we will tell you where you can watch Jackass Forever and what streaming platform to find it on.
Although unscripted television shows portraying ordinary people are as old as television itself, reality television as we know it really came to prominence in the early 2000s. Shows like Big Brother, Pop Idols, and Survivor ushered in a worldwide obsession with watching normal people in unusual situations or showing off their ‘talent’.
However, Jackass was something absurdly different. Hitting our screens in 2000, Jackass episodes premiered on MTV and followed an original crew of friends carrying out grotesque pranks and bone-breaking stunts that made viewers cringe in obsessive disgust. Controlling parents around the globe were up in arms about the show’s provocative ‘indecency’ as they sat terrified their little Johnny was going to follow suit.
Jackass’ popularity didn’t take long to blow up and the first feature-length movie, Jackass: The Movie, hit the silver screen in 2002. At the time, it was believed by the executive producer Jeff Tremaine and Johnny Knoxville that Jackass: The Movie was the franchise’s final farewell to adoring fans but as hindsight usually does, they were proven wrong.
With two main titles released in 2006 and 2010, Jackass Forever was released in February 2022 and is the saga’s fourth full-length feature. This is not taking into account various spin-offs, commemorative episodes, and TV documentary tributes like the one to original crew member Ryan Dunn who died in 2011.
If you missed the cinema release in 2022, fear not as Jackass Forever has been released on a popular streaming platform, so you can catch up with the crew’s shenanigans from the comfort of your own home. After all, there is no better place to watch an aging group of careless pranksters shoot various objects at their private parts.
What Happened to Bam Margera During Filming?
When the announcement of Jackass Forever came, fans were looking forward to seeing the original cast members get together for a few hours of tomfoolery. Although being the first feature-length film after the death of Ryan Dunn, people were anticipating Johnny Knoxville, Dave England, Steve-O, Wee Man, Preston Lacy, Chris Pontius, Danger Ehren, and Bam Margera to dust off the cobwebs, retreat from their Californian mansions and dive head first into gross pranks.
This was the case at the start of filming, but things quite quickly went pear-shaped. Margera’s relationship with Knoxville and Tremaine began to sour as Paramount Pictures started to force him out of the picture. Paramount Pictures stated that Margera was becoming a ‘liability’ and his behavior was becoming increasingly difficult to work with.
Margera has always been open about his struggles with substance abuse and has had quite a tough time over the last decade. He went on to explain in a series of videos posted to his Instagram that Paramount Pictures had forced him onto antidepressants and submit to random urine tests. After being ejected from the cast, Margera filed a lawsuit against MTV, Paramount Pictures, Knoxville, and Tremaine for unlawfully being fired. Although settled privately this meant that all but one scene Margera was involved in were cut from the final edit. A rather sad ending to Margera’s decades-long involvement with the franchise.
