Movie Info & Cast
Johnny Knoxville – co-creator and star of the MTV reality daredevil/stunt show Jackass and the equally outlandish film series of the same name – is back. As D.C., the eccentric owner of a two-bit amusement park with a spectacularly bad safety record called Action Point, he’s just trying to connect with his visiting teenage daughter. But when a new mega-park threatens Action Point’s future, D.C. decides to give his park an “excitement enema” by instituting a “no rules, no speed limits, just pure fun” strategy. Will his outlandish and frequently painful stunts be enough to save his father/daughter relationship and the day? Directed by Tim Kirkby (Brockmire), with a screenplay by Silicon Valley writers/producers John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky, and a story by Mike Judge.

Did You Know?
- The film is loosely inspired on the now defunct Action Park in Vernon, New Jersey that first opened in 1979. The park was considered by many to be one of the most dangerous theme parks in the United States. At least six people were known to have died as a result of incidents that occurred within the original park. The park closed in 1996 and later reopened, under new ownership, as Mountain Creek. After yet another ownership change, the park briefly changed its name back to Action Park for the 2014 and 2015 seasons before reverting back to Mountain Creek in 2016, in order to disassociate itself from the former park's infamous reputation.
- Chris Pontius and Johnny Knoxville are supposed to be brothers and in the scene to drive after Boogie, Pontius says something about his grandfather referring to him as "my grandfather" when it would have been "our grandfather."

Very predictable, but a great comedy
The movie was okay I was mostly looking at my phone the movie had some funny stuff and laugh it was just boring to me.
Such a thin plot from some of the Jackass guys would have been completely forgiven, or even blissfully ignored, if the stunts were on par, or at least close to, what we expect from these guys.
Presumably intended for Jackass fans desperately in search of a plot, Action Park makes a typical episode of America's Funniest Home Videos look sophisticated by comparison.
Action Point contains some crazy stunts and some funny-ish gross-out humor, but is ultimately a pale echo of the dark destruction Johnny Knoxville became famous for.
