Jackass: Number Two vs. Dirty Sanchez: The Movie

Tuesday 24 October (2006)

I’ve had the privilege of watching the latest movie offerings from the two foremost exponents of the ‘let’s hurt each other’ scene recently; Jackass: Number Two and Dirty Sanchez: The Movie. Reviews aren’t necessary (I mean, there’s nothing to review is there) but for those of you who like your comedy-pain / sideshow entertainment the question you must have is: which one of these movies is the worst? And by worst, of course, you mean best, you sick bastard. Well, read on my friends.

The first thing that struck me about the Jackass movie was: “Haven’t I seen this somewhere before?” I had – on the Dirty Sanchez TV show. In the movie Knoxville and pals perform a stunt whereby a tube is placed up Steve-O’s ass, and then beer is poured down the tube. Then the tube is removed, and beer hilariously sprays out like alcoholic diarrhoea. This was done in series two of Dirty Sanchez – and not only was it done there first, it was worse, because Dan Joyce caught the ass-beer spray in a pint glass and then fucking drank some. So, the Jackass offering looked a bit tame in comparison.

There were some other ideas seen in the Jackass movie that I’d also seen on the TV version of Dirty Sanchez. It’s actually surprising how similarly these nutjobs think, because I wouldn’t have come up with either of these concepts in a million years…

Firstly, Bam Margera got branded. Except, his natural instincts took over and he shied away from the red-hot metal, and in the end it just looked like a big scabby mess. When the boys from Dirty Sanchez did the branding trick, they were being held down on the ground to prevent that from happening – and the brand, when done, actually looked like a kind of cool tattoo. The other shared idea was – how shall I put this? – animal husbandry. They both had to grab hold of a rampant horse cock and shove it into the fake vagina to collect the animal’s sperm. This time, however, Jackass has the edge – Chris Pontius… well, you know what he does. He fucking drinks it.

Except, I say Jackass has the edge, but we’re comparing their movie to Dirty Sanchez’s TV series. The Sanchez movie is by far the more hardcore offering. What do they have that tops a man drinking horse spunk? Wait for this one: they film Pancho having liposuction, then Dan Joyce (the same mad bastard who drank the ass-beer) drinks a glass of his fleshy, horrible, dead fat. He drinks a man’s fat. He even jokingly remarks “This is cannibalism!”

I mean it’s just stomach-churning, gut-wrenchingly disgusting. It’s not entertainment – but yet, there I was watching it.

But the two shows are, despite everything, different things. There are a lot of people who say that Dirty Sanchez is a bad imitation of Jackass, but it’s not so clean-cut. The boys from Jackass are basically out to make some money, playing well-planned and expensive pranks on themselves and the general public – it’s like a sicker, more dangerous version of Trigger Happy TV or something. Sanchez is different – these four guys literally have nothing better to do than get drunk and play jokes on each other. The things they do are horrible, but they’re only hurting (or trying to outdo) themselves.

It’s hard to say which is the ‘better’ movie. Dirty Sanchez is more disgusting, and at times a lot funnier – but Jackass, by the very nature of the fact that it’s less horrific, is more watchable. I suppose, if you’re into this kind of entertainment, you’re going to like both movies just as much as each other. Well, go for it.

    Knoxville Should Meet Up with Pritchard

  6. Stephen Gunn Says:

    Why Does England Hate Wales just cause We have Sanchez and can relate ourselves to america!
    I’m Welsh and Proud

    America and WALES United!

    WALES HAVE THE FINGER CUTTING, ASS DRINKING Sanchez Boyos

    England Have Tony Blair

  7. Stephen Again! Says:

    Did the guy who wrote the story/review know that Pritchard from Sanchez Gets His Finger Cut Off!

  8. stan Says:

    I think that what happened was that the Pritchard vs. Dainton movies which led to Dirty Sanchez (much like CKY being a precursor to Jackass) were made completely originally, without copying anyone. When Jackass became successful, it caused MTV Europe to make Dirty Sanchez (realising that ‘people doing crazy shit’ was good entertainment) and then that made everyone automatically say “they’re copying Jackass.”

    So Jackass will have found out about Dirty Sanchez and dismissed them as people trying to rip them off, which will in turn have pissed the Sanchez boys off who didn’t actually rip them off but just got involved later in the day.

    It also pisses the Sanchez boys off that Jackass seems tame in comparison but yet they make a lot more money.

    Either way, it sucks that they don’t like each other… a Sanchez meets Jackass would be great 🙂

  9. Mike Sandy Says:

    Do You Think that maybe if say, dudesons, sanchez and jackass met in one room they’d be arguing or they just get pissed and have a laugh

    Cause the Jackass Guys like doing Stunts that almost make them look gay, but there straight

    Bam is friends with the dudesons and they have featured on an episode or to of Viva La Bam. As for jackass having met the DS crew, Bam and Ryan Dunn did the Gumball 3000 rally 06 and so did some of the DS boys so chances are they have met…

  23. Colum Says:

    I agree with the Jackass taking the Sanchez stunts…most of them are from the ‘Darker Side’ of series 2 DVD.

    Likewise, Prichard snorts wasabi which Steve-O did back in series one, and also their concept of seven deadly sins is suspiciously similiar to ‘Les Commandements Eleven’, a French movie very similiar to jackass (slightly more tame though…maybe similiar to Jackass series 1).

    Blame it on the producers guys, they write most of the stuff, particularly the big stunts. The most original stuff you’ll find is Sanchez series 1.

    Some people still believe Viva La Bam is made up on the fly and not scripted, which makes me laugh. It’s still entertaining though.

    Jackass are starting recording the third movie this month guys, it’s being recorded in 3D. I’m REALLY REALLY REALLY hoping they get Sanchez involved in one stunt, maybe a vs type thing. I think i’d involuntarily orgasm. Infact, I think i’d murder and rape 20 fellow humans and send their bodies to the cast every morning for the next year as a thank you present.

    I do feel really disappointed with stuff like Wrecked and that Nike football Sanchez thing, the shows are fun, it’s just how obviously scripted it is, I much preferred the way it was in Sanchez series 1 when it was real, or even Sanchez series 2 & 3 when they at least made a better effort to pretend it wasn’t scripted.

  24. jjlok Says:

    Someone tell the jackass or sanchez team to get together some day that would be awesome, even in a fight

  25. Ray Says:

    I can’t see why nobody especially understands how guys fuck around with each other. Its obvious they both got respect for each other, they are all lads fucking around. I used to piss around with my mates in Wales the same, betting and daring each other when i was younger, but we split up and all moved on, we did some pretty mental shit to each other. I reckon this type of mentality lies in sick humour, but it mostly is humourous bordering on the verge of tragedy. This is typical of lads fucking around and pushing each other and does tend to be similar to a lot of lads mentality in Wales or with the lads i used to hang around with anyway. Thats what you see in the Sanchez crew and the same as the Jackass lot.

    If you ain’t got that kinda mentality you will never understand why they are with each other the way they are.

    Their just winding each other up, by having little digs here and there, but its all a wind up and a part of the mentality of daring each other.

    I don’t know about this one, after snagging the fleshlight butt that I seen on the site fleshlightsvideos.com I doubt any other sex toy can match the realistic feel – and that is after experimenting with other good masturbators like the Mieko Vagina. But I still must say none of these sex toys can match a fleshlight – There is no doubt in my mind, it kicks the shit out of most other male sex toys!
