That Jackass on Facebook Is … ‘Jackass’

Paramount makes the “Jackass” franchise available for rental right from Facebook

"Jackass" fans no longer have to leave the comfort of Facebook to watch their favorite movies.

Paramount Pictures has placed the entire "Jackass" catalogue for rent on the social networking site. People who like — rather, who "like" — "Jackass" can click "Rent Movies" on the Jackass Facebook page. From there, they can watch any film from the franchise.

It'll cost. "Jackass: The Movie," "Jackass 2" and "Jackass 2.5" cost 30 Facebook credits, or $2.99. Newer "Jackassses" — "Jackass 3" and "Jackass 3.5" cost 40 Facebook credits, or $3.99.
