Mind you, I'm not advocating such a thing, but I wonder why no one has followed up on Jackass and produced a string of movies filled with silly, outrageous stunts. Instead, Jackass 3-D has the field to itself, which should guarantee a decent box office return just for the sake of novelty and a good giggle. Interestingly, Jackie Chan once said that he would dream up three great stunt/action sequences, and then hand his notes over to a screenwriter to figure out how to connect the dots.
On a related note, where are the modern-day equivalents of That's Entertainment! (clips from musicals) and Terror in the Aisles (clips from horror flicks)? All on DVD? Could it be that we've hit on the singular sub-genre that Hollywood studio executives are too afraid to replicate, for some unknown reason? Don't be alarmed: these are just idle thoughts, and I'm sure we won't see a sudden profusion of movies with no bread, as it were.
