Director: Jeff Tremaine
Starring: Johnny Knoxville, Jackson Nicoll, Spike Jonze
Kimmy (Georgina Cates) is heading back to jail because of a bad drug addiction and decides to drop off her son Billy (Jackson Nicoll) with her father Irving (Johnny Knoxville). Irving receives his grandson in the middle of his eulogy that he's doing for his wife who just passed away. Irving wants to spend this time to mourn or should I say he's "single and ready to mingle" after 46 years of marriage, so he decides to take Billy to North Carolina to live with his no good father. But on their way to North Carolina, Billy and his grandfather get themselves into crazy situations.
Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa was a hilarious time at the movies as Johnny Knoxville switched it up for this Jackass film. The Jackass films are usually filled with one hilarious stunt after another with some cringing from the audience in between but with Bad Grandpa we still get the hilarious stunts and a storyline. The storyline isn't the best but makes perfect sense and just adds to the humor of the film.
But is Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa for everybody? If immature humor is not for you then Bad Grandpa should be passed on right away. I laughed at most scenes throughout the film because yes, I do find immature humor hilarious but I don't believe I would laugh if I was to see the film a second time. Most of the jokes were shock humor, you just can't believe what you are either hearing or seeing at the moment.
Ideally I would recommend seeing Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa if you want a night out with your friends and just want to laugh. But in any other situation I would wait until the film is available on Netflix to see it.
What The Delio?!: 7/10
