Jackass (and the perpetual controversy cloud that hung over it) brought Knoxville international fame, and it wasn't long before he started flexing his 'proper' acting muscles again. The first such movie was Life Without Dick.
Knoxville plays title character Dick, an obnoxious private eye whose put upon girlfriend (Sarah Jessica Parker) accidentally shoots (and kills) him, before eloping with his would-be assassin.
Paint Rating? Well taking a slug in the guts has gotta hurt, but he probably did the right thing by ducking out of this lame comedy early on.
