An object lesson in pure anarchic brilliance
on 5 May 2006
Okay, okay - yes, it's puerile. Yes, it's childish. Yes, it's stupid; but yes, it's absolutely hilarious.
Bam and his dozy friends continue in their quest to find out just what can be done with lots of money, time, audacity, imagination, luck and a desire to cause as much chaos as possible. Oh, and to make life as unbearable as possible for Bam's hapless uncle Vince 'Don Vito'. And to destroy as many of Vito's cars as possible. And to aggravate Vito at every given opportunity. And to skate a lot.
This boxed set sees Bam and his mob visiting LA to scrounge goodies off the stars and take Vito to the Playboy Mansion; A trip to Mardis Gras for all of 2 hours; Crazy Golf - Bam-style; and an unforgettable visit from Johnny Knoxville (of Jackass fame) which degenerates into an all-out prank war.
Being an MTV release, this has a very handmade feel about it - it's noisy and relentless, very full-on and pretty exhausting to watch end to end. But it's a slick production, and very, very funny. If you can watch it all and it doesn't raise so much as a titter, I'm sorry to tell you that you're probably dead.
My only complaint is that I would like to have seen a few more extras. But that's a minor quibble when the main event alone is more than enough to justify buying this. Go on, bewilder your parents - invite them into Bam's world!
