Eighty-six-year-old Irving Zisman is on a journey across America with the most unlikely companion: his eight-year-old grandson Billy, in "Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa". Jackass characters Irving Zisman (Johnny Knoxville) and Billy (Jackson Nicoll) will take movie audiences along for the most insane hidden camera road trip ever captured on camera. Along the way Irving will introduce the young and impressionable Billy to people, places, and situations that give new meaning to the term "childrearing". 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. Written by

A scene was shot where Irving and Billy visit the grave of deceased Jackass member Ryan Dunn but ultimately it was decided that the scene injected too much of a somber tone. Instead, the film ends with a dedication to Dunn in the closing credits. See more »

You know what I wanna be when I grow up?
A fisherman. I want to go fishing everyday 'till I'm rich so I can move right next to the jailhouse so I can be close to my mommy. She got arrested for drugs again, so she has to go back.
I'm sorry to hear that.

There are some really genius scenes in this and sometimes it feels like a real movie. But most of the time you are getting out of it. It's too obvious that Mr. Jackass himself is trying to get the most out of any situation. What really is great is the young boy. He is truly amazing, even in the scenes where he seems to go too far. The disc will have some extra funny bits, different takes on some of the things in the movie.
But it all feels like this is Jackass mixed with a bit of Borat for good measure. Or maybe not so good measure, it's up to you. The very best bit comes late, but has been paraded in the campaign/trailer for the movie so often, that you might not feel any impact at all. Even if you haven't seen that part of the show (and even if you are not aware that this has become harsh reality even before they started shooting this movie), the movie does feel like patchwork. Funny patchwork, but still not knitted together in a fashion that would make this really excel into a territory where this could be called really good
