Jackass Crew Gets Hosed ... by Madonna?

by Jennifer DeFilippo of cinematical.com

I bet the Jackass crew has done a dangerous stunt using a fireman's hose. I've never been able to bring myself to watch either the TV show or the film -- I'm not particularly interested in watching a guy wax off all of his body hair while getting kicked in the scrotum -- but I'm sure a professional fire hose has come into play at some point in their careers. Now, four of the risk takers will appear in a scripted film produced by Madonna's Maverick Films and HBO -- with a fire hose as the inspiration.

Hosed will be a comedy about a volunteer firefighter who has big aspirations but little physical talent. Finally, this Good Samaritan is "assigned to a firehouse where he has to deal with a band of misfit firefighters from the wrong side of the tracks," as described by Hollywood Reporter. Chris Pontius, Preston Lacy, Steve O, and Jason Acuņa will be the 'misfits.' We know these guys can be naked, struck by a taser gun and maced, all at the same time, but do they have the acting chops to even pull off an Adam "Tex" Davis (Just Friends) film? We'll have to wait until it's released to find out.

As far as the story goes...an inept volunteer firefighter and four unruly veterans? It sounds like blind leading the blind. Let's hope that whomever they cast as the inevitable mishap firefighter is enough to carry the film on his clumsy (yet hopefully broad and attractive) shoulders.

Pontius rules. I bet it will be funny.

That's some piss-poor writing. I'm still not sure what it's about...

Apparently you only need to be qualified to act in movies, not write about them.
