Basically there is nothing more to say than if you love comedy, and love laughing your ass off until you wet yourself then look no further because this is certainly one of them movies!! Its dumb, its stupid, its jackass all over again, but hell it works every time, Knoxville has this character down and gets away with so much crazy stuff, it a must see, certainly one of the years funniest movies by far, there is a storyline running through the movie this time which is unusual for them, but its filled with lots of random sketches as they get themselves in so much trouble, if you want a laugh out loud comedy, get it, its worth it.

what starts as a novelty sketch becomes a sweet story even if it is considered by some as disgraceful at times. the reactions from some people are the best bits really some are so hypocritical its insane. so you damaged his property now you gonna beat up the guy. a beauty pageant where 6 year old girls dress up as 20 year olds is to them deemed acceptable but to the audience looks sick but they find a little boy stripping as a girl is innapropriate. man some americans come off as the most judgmental people on the planet i heard a journalist if you can call him that mock the people involved in finding the plane that disappeared saying "it took us a 100 years to find the titanic and another two hundred to find noahs ark why cant they find there plane." i must go to the noahs ark museum and get long iced giraffe high tea sometime. the reactions are great by both friendly good americans and dumb people one guy looked like he was gona kill knoxville and frankly he needs some anger management courses. long story short if you like jackass watch this if you dont watch the mortal instruments which is a very safe and average movie experience.

86-year-old Irving Zisman (Knoxville) and Billy (Jackson Nicoll) are on a road trip across the United States. Irving is tasked with taking his grandson to live with his father after his mother is jailed. Interspersed with the brief story segments are hidden camera pranks, stunts & plenty of Havoc along the way. True to the Jackass Nature there are lots of laughs, crude scenes & fantastic Stunts. Really recommend to any Jackass or knoxville Fan, as you wont be disappointed.

if you like the humour of Jachass but want a story to follow this may just be the film for you. i watched and cringed at the antics of Johnny Knoxville and his eight year old side kick and more than once i got stomach ache with laughing, especially the bar scene with the male strippers. And for once the extras must be watched as hey really are funny and explain how and why some of the scenes were selected.

The Jackass team probably give us their best effort thus far in Bad Grandpa. Jonny Knoxville in a 3hr make up job plays an 86 year old loud mouthed, foul mouthed old man that spits and spews his way through the movie with his grandson. Movie works as we get some kind of Candid Camera view. There are only 3 or 4 'actors' in the movie and each shocking scene is played out with unsuspecting members of the public. And every scene gets worse and cringeworthy than the next. It is crude and it is brash- but you'd have to be dead as a nail not to let go a few times and find this downright funny.

Sometimes it doesn't work as well, and yes it is toilet humour, but there are far worse movies out there attempting the same thing. The little kid is quite a confident bright star played by Jackson Nicoll- he steals the pagenant scene. There will be times where you will question how much of it is faked- but then you'll realise, especially in the outtakes during end credits that what you watched was very real. A switch your brain off movie- don't expect much and you should enjoy this 90 minute movie for what it is.

I saw the trailer with short snippets of most of the really funny bits and thought maybe that covered it, but much to my surprise on watching the whole film I found it all hilarious with many laugh out loud moments (and I don't usually like slapstick). The title sounds like a children's film, but it definitely isn't, in fact it's not suitable for children at all as it's very rude and crude. Johnny Knoxville is completely fearless on all levels in his antics. What surprised me was the general public who let him get away with the most outrageous behaviour, some of them also colluded with him in what was staged as seemingly criminal behaviour. At no point did anyone pick up the phone and call the police even when they saw an eight year old child apparently left on his own in the street and engaging with random passers-by. Very exposing of American society where it was filmed, although I am not saying any other relatively affluent and so-called civilized societies would be any better. Very, very funny and to some extent an indictment of modern life.

Irving Zisman takes charge of his Grandson when he has to take him on a cross country trip to his father.

Problem is, the mother has gone to jail, the father only wants the kid for the welfare, and Irving has just lost his wife, so he's not in the best of moods....

Yes we've seen the hidden camera movie before. jackass, Borat, Bruno et al,but surprisingly this has to be one of the funniest of the sub genre.

The stunts are a little over the top. And the ones you expect big laughs from are a little overdrawn, but it's the small stunts when Irving is talking to the general public that are genuinely funny. The bingo hall scene is laugh out loud funny, and the best scene, while concludes the main narrative, set in the bikers bar is wickedly delicious.

But it's not just an out and out comedy, its a clever exploitation movie, a damning social commentary of the state of the social climate today.

We may laugh, but when an elderly person is in distress, people choose to record hi. On their phones, rather than help. And what 25 year old man in their right mind would threaten an eighty something?.

So all in all its hilarious, with the smaller laughs proving much funnier than the bigger stunts, and it's surprisingly touching too.

I normally hate this type of film / comedy so was very reluctant to watch it. However It my whole family in stitches the whole way through, we all loved it!

Yes it is crass and over the top but thats I expected for a Jackass movie. I do agree it should be an 18 as other have said.

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa is a very funny movie with a heart. I loved this movie and found myself laughing out loud more than once. In case you are unfamiliar with the what Bad Grandpa is about; Bad Grandpa is a 2013 hidden camera comedy film written by Jeff Tremaine, Spike Jonze and Johnny Knoxville and directed by Jeff Tremaine. Bad Grandpa has a loose plot that connects the stunts and pranks together as opposed to the three original Jackass films which had no plot. The story follows 86-year-old Irving Zisman (Knoxville) takes a trip from Nebraska to North Carolina to take his 8 year-old grandson, Billy, back to his real father. I am glad I watched this movie and would definitely recommend it to others.

Thank you for reading my review.
