  • If you didn't see the film, this classic moment in Dave Letterman history provides about the same information. Is Phoenix acting here?

  • If you've seen a 3D movie this past summer, chances are you've seen a trailer for Jackass 3D. The biggest laugh in the trailer comes from a mega high-five straight to Bam Margera's face. This short clip from the movie, premiered during last Sunday's MTV VMA's, gives some more of that face-smashing goodness.
