"That sounds kind of dangerous," someone replies. But that's the point of "Action Point"!
The movie essentially takes Knoxville's "Jackass" antics and puts them into a theme park setting. He plays the owner of a low-rent amusement park who decides to turn the dial up 11 in order to compete with a bigger high-end park nearby. That means faster rides, more fire, more animals (including a very sharp porcupine), and seemingly unlimited alcohol. It's a recipe for lots of painful fun.
Like "Jackass," the cast actually performs the stunts seen on screen. But now, there's a storyline layered on top of the hijinks.
The movie is loosely based on a real New Jersey place called Action Park, which was shut down after multiple died over the years.
"Action Point" opens in theaters June 1.
