Read about the most embarrassing grandpa ever! JACKASS Presents BAD GRANDPA - Movie Review!

We attended a recording of Alan Carr‘s ‘Chatty Man‘ a few weeks back and one of the guests was Johnny Knoxville. He had mentioned and showed a clip of the new Jackass movie ‘Bad Grandpa‘, so we thought we must go and see it when it comes out.

The film revolves around Jackass‘ horny pensioner, Irving Zisman (Knoxville), who is given the task of driving his impressionable 8-year-old grandson, Billy (Jackson Nicoll) across America to get him to his deadbeat father when his mother is jailed.

Irving and Billy will take movie audiences along for the most insane hidden camera road trip ever captured on camera. The duo will encounter male strippers, disgruntled child beauty pageant contestants (and their equally disgruntled mothers), funeral home mourners, biker bar patrons, and a whole lot of unsuspecting citizens. Real people in unreal situations, making for one really messed up comedy.

JACKASS Presents BAD GRANDPA - Film Review
What really makes this film work is a little “story” built around all the jokes about this grandfather coming closer to his grandson. It’s oh-so-silly but that’s the point. The various situations the two find themselves in are certainly the highlight of the picture as we get some down-right shocking scenes. There are even moments that you’ll see coming from a mile away, but then you’ll get a twist that will just have tears running down your face.

This film delivers a laugh every minute or so and if you don’t laugh then you must have had a sense of humour transplant! There are some unforgettable scenes like the Restaurant Wall, the kids ride that you stick a quarter/dollar in and not forgetting the Beauty Pageant.

It has to get 5 stars out of 5.

It will go down as one of the best comedy films this year. I haven’t laughed like that in ages and it’s not just a chuckle either it’s rip-roaring bellyful laughs. If you need cheering up then this film will certainly knock those blues and the stuffing out of you. It’s hilarious, down right stupid and funny and well worth seeing.

At the end my eyes were stinging from crying with laughter and my stomach felt like it had done a good session of laughter yoga (yes that does exist!). They say that laughter is the best medicine well this filmed damned near killed me.

Don’t take my word for it go see for yourself. Oh and NO Americans or Animals were harmed in the filming.
