Let’s say you are stuck in your Weston real estate this weekend and looking for something to do. You certainly do not need to pay an arm and a leg to go to the cinema and pay for overpriced popcorn. Rather, you can stay at home with your loved ones and enjoy an entertaining DVD. Perhaps watch a quality sequel that you may have missed.
Jackass Number Two reached the Number 1 spot for movies in America in 2006. In the second film based on the infamous MTV series of the same name, Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Bam Margera, and their brainless amigos continue their intensely dangerous, painful and idiotic feats for the sake of laughter. Director Jeff Tremaine’s fantastic feature can certainly be fun for the whole family, as even the most masculine figures will occasionally put their hands up over their eyes.
The immature humor begins with the entire cast running for their lives down a busy street in slow motion. There are bulls chasing them and a dramatic melody plays in the background. A dude places a fish hook through his cheek and goes playing with a mako shark before Knoxville gets plummeted by an ox. The boys go bungee jumping off a bridge in Miami Beach. The crew also plays dodgeball in the dark, rides a teeter-totter in front of a raging bull, and creates a fake beard.
The conclusion is a brilliantly choreographed black-tie song and dance. The cast members perform a Broadway-style piece topped with synchronized swimming and a guest appearance by Rip Taylor. But the absolute highlight is the outtakes shown as the credits roll.
If you prefer to watch something a sequel that is a bit more dramatic in your home for sale in Weston, you can always check out 2006’s Rocky Balboa. For four decades now, Rocky is classic. Whether he is overcoming Apollo Crede Mr. T, the Russian or Tommy Gun, Sylvester Stallone has always captivated movie-goers.
In Rocky Balboa, the 60-year-old former champ is a widow and a restaurant owner, having lost his great fortune. When a computer matches up the Italian Stallion in his prime fighting the unpopular present-day champ, Mason Dixon, things get exciting. Rocky starts thinking and decides that he has more to offer the boxing world. Coached by Adrian’s brother, Paulie, the over-the-hill fighter sets up an exhibition match in Vegas with most of the proceeds going to charity.
Without giving away the ending, just know that Rocky and his brute stamina go the distance by exercising the philosophy, “It’s not how hard you hit, but how much you can take and stay on your feet.” The tattoo-faced felon, Mike Tyson even has a memorable cameo in Balboa.
Weston luxury homeowners will get a kick out watching the credits. Dozens of civilians, ranging in age, race, and color are shown reaching the top of Philadelphia’s Museum of Art and hopping up and down, not unlike the champion himself in the 1976 timeless work of art.
