Forget everything you thought you knew about bad movies. Jump redefines the very notion of a bad movie. Jump is bad 2.0. Jump is fucking awful. Jump is atrocious. Jump is a crime. Jump is diarrhea in a to go cup.  Jump motherfucking sucks. The only reason I watched it all the way through is out of some perverted sense of duty to this site. A pox on you Ruthless, a pox.

Jump is about a fucking guy standing on the ledge of a building. He maybe wants to kill himself because he thinks, “the world sucks.” There is a clown and some other stupid people and a really awful actor named Mike McGlone – who should be fucking beat down in the street – they are all friends of the guy who might jump and they don’t even ever try to talk him down. Instead they bitch about their stupid love lives. Mostly they bitch about the clown guy who got the McGlone guy’s girlfriend pregnant. In the end, the guy gets down off the ledge and for some reason the clown jumps off. Only he doesn’t die, he lands in a pile of garbage and gets into a fight with a mime. I was giving my TV the finger with both hands when the credits rolled. I swear it man, this movie sucked the fucking life right out me. All my joy is gone.

The real criminal here is Justin McCarthy. He wrote and directed this train wreck of a nightmare. Other people in Hollywood should come to the realization that he is poisoning their well. He is wrecking it for everyone else. A gang of directors should go to his home and beat him to death with a VCR. What the fuck was he thinking? Jerry Bruckheimer is an outright genius next this McCarthy fool. I mean, Pearl Harbor looks like Chinatown when compared side by side to Jump. This movie makes me embarrassed to be alive.

IMDB.com has Jump ranked at 2.8 stars. For comparisons sake, Crossroads, the previous heavyweight champ of shit, gets 3.1 stars, The Master of Disguise gets a 2.9, and The Musketeer gets a 4.3. [Ed Note: In all fairness, C.H.U.D. II – Bud The Chud only got 2 stars…] There is no point in going on with this review. It hurts me to even try and think of examples of sheer crapulence to bring up and make fun of. Jump is bad in ways that other movies haven’t even thought of. Go to your local video store and set fire to the fucking copies on the shelves. Kill Jump. Kill it.

  • Acting: 0
  • Story: 0
  • DVD Extras: 0
  • Re-watchability: Maybe if you wanted to torture someone.
    Actually, what would be fair and just is to get all the criminals
    involved in the making of Jump and make them watch it for a year straight, Clockwork Orange style.
