STARRING Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Bam Margera
WRITTEN BY Preston Lacy
DIRECTED BY Jeff Tremaine

Steve-O dreamed of darts flying at his face. When he awoke, he quickly scribbled down the idea — of using his own visage as a dartboard — like a poet trying to capture an accidental bit of nighttime brilliance. Once he did, he knew deep down it would have to happen. ”I just couldn’t think of any reason for it not to,” he says. We can think of at least a few, but thanks to Steve-O and his fellow punishment-gluttons’ willingness to inflict self harm, we’re about to be on the receiving end of yet another feature-length collection of their inventively masochistic and disgusting antics. Only this time, they’re in magnificent 3-D. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll cringe. And for Steve-O, getting to share his humiliation with the whole world is like a dream come true. A very painful dream.
