Warning, this movie is rated R......but should be rated XGrandma went to Bossier City, Louisiana with her son-in-law, CSM John, to see "Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa".
Just so you know, if you want to see this movie, don't go with your son-in-law or any other male who isn't your significant other. It can be a tad embarrassing....in a very funny way. Also, this movie is not for kids....and if your teenagers start laughing uncontrollably, that means they probably went to see Bad Grandpa.
Jackass' Johnny Knoxville stars as Irving Zisman, his old man character. The movie opens with Irving getting the bad news that his wife has passed away. At her funeral, attended by only strangers of course, his daughter shows up with his grandson Billy, (played by Jackson Nicoll). She tells him she has to go back to jail and asks him to take Billy to his father in North Carolina. Reluctantly, that's what Irving does...
But, before they can actually hit the road, Irving decides to have an estate sale. Where his demonstration of how his marital bed raises up.
Along the way, there are numerous episodes of pranking people. Because of a disagreement with the funeral home, they have to bring his late wife's corpse along for the ride, comfortably stowed in the car's trunk...most of the time.
The pranks are very funny.....like when they decide to make sandwiches in a grocery store........
........... they end stash the loaf of bread before fleeing when they get caught.
The pranks continue, some pretty raunchy, like when Irving gets his penis, named Leroy, caught in a Coke Machine outside a convenience store. There are other scenes that display Leroy.....like in a strip club. No such details are available here.
Along the way, Irving enters Billy in a children's beauty pageant where Billy dresses up in a Honey BooBoo...ish costume.
One hilarious part is Billy doing his talent portion where he sings "My Bonnie Lies Over The Ocean, which includes a strip and pole dance.
If you go see Bad Grandpa, stay for the credits which includes some very funny take-outs. Grandma J liked this movie, even though she thinks her son-in-law laughed way too much.....but so did she. So, with that, and given the great job of acting by Knoxville and Nicoll, she gives this movie four and a half stars.
