A brand new ‘Jackass’ movie is coming to Netflix


There is a long and proud tradition of Donkey the guys shoot a lot more footage than they need for each of their movies, then whittle it down to the best of the best stunts for a theatrical release. Then, with the remaining footage, they usually create at least one additional bonus film – each dubbed donkey 1.5, donkey 2.5and so on – who lives on home video.

True to form, the sublimely entertaining Fooled forever has now spawned a second film, titled donkey 4.5. Rather than hitting theaters, this movie will go straight to Netflix next month. In announcing the film, Netflix noted that donkey 4.5 contains “all the crew” of Fooled forever. Its good; I need a lot more Poopies in my life.

To celebrate the announcement, Netflix has shared one of the movie’s new stunts, “Swingset Gauntlet,” where some cast members are on a swing and others zip past them on a treadmill. If they pass someone as they swing forward, well, that’s how comedy magic happens.

It is truly glorious. Painful, but glorious.

donkey 4.5 premieres on Netflix on May 20. If you can’t wait, Fooled forever is already streaming on Paramount+. The Blu-ray was also released today, so if you don’t have a subscription, you can now get a physical copy instead.

It’s very kind of Donkey team to do something for people this National Stress Awareness Month. I have a lot of stress in my life right now, and I’m watching Donkey helps alleviate some of it. It’s pretty amazing how actively someone else’s self-harm contributes to my self-care.
