Trivia

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.

Goofs

During the chase, the long distance bus is driving on the left hand rule of road rather than on the right hand rule of road as in California. No visual indication that the road is part of dual carriageway.

One estate in the car park is right-hand-drive. See more »

Dissapointing
21 July 2019 | by gamingvaultSee all my reviews

I am very much a fan of Jackass and Johnny Knoxville. I think he has a good comedic brain and when on form can be funny naturally. So when I saw a trailer for this and the idea of a backwards theme park I thought it would be a good laugh.

Sadly the film didn't add much from the trailer and the story lacked structure, severely at times. There are some funny moments. But it is mostly slapstick. With political correctness so agonisingly crammed into everything these days I did wonder that the sensors may have killed the dialogue. I would say the chances of cutting crude jokes is pretty high, based on the neurosis of the current establishment.

Either way, the verbal comedy was pretty weak. There are some funny stunts and most of them are real and painful looking. This never fails to make me laugh. But the story is where it went south. The ending where the bad guy gets his comeupance is very formulaic and boring.

Interestingly one of the (fairly out in the open) themes in the film is corporate greed = bad. This is a silly film about a silly park owner, politics are not necessary and neither are watered down jokes. The premise is great, execution sucked. If you like Knoxville and Jackass you should enjoy it. But it really isn't all that great. One final point, the park the film is based on was pretty bad, but nothing like in the film. But hey I suppose it's comedy. Slightly above average.
