Although it would work better as a Youtube video than a movie, "Bad Grampa" is disposable but entertaining.

It had its moments for sure, but overall it was simply OK. The film did have an actual setup unlike the previous Jackass films (a grandpa reuniting a boy with his no-good father) and, of course, Johnny Knoxville made him the dirtiest old man possible but it's really Jackson Nicoll who makes the film, because there's nothing quite like an earnest kid speaking his mind. Overall enjoyable but not as many laughs as I was hoping for.

'Bad Grandpa' follows the same movie-making format of 'Borat'. That is, a comedian playing a fictitious character and pulling pranks on unsuspecting real life bystanders, all based around a loose plot. Like 'Borat', the antics reach surprising hysterical levels. There's a fun-loving crassness to the jokes. They are crazy over-the-top, but never feel too gross. I'd be lying if I said I didn't laugh hard throughout most of it. The situations are funny to begin with. Add the physical and improvisational talents of Knoxville and young Jackson, and the comedy reaches greater heights. The 'Jackass' crew have outdone themselves this time. I got more than my fair share of laughter.

I had high expectations going this movie. I grew up with Jackass on MTV and must admit I still have an immature side which enjoys fart jokes and scat humor. This flick had a few moments of pretty funny gags that seemingly come out of no where (i.e. the element of surprise). The golf fish, the folding bed and the explosive diarrhea are the funniest parts of the movie the rest was just filler. Knoxville should leave the inter-spliced reality- scripited type movies to Sacha Baron …

I consider the first three Jackass films a guilty pleasure - Bad Grandpa sounds like it will join that list. I was surprised by how well it did - but then again, I was also surprised by how well the previous Jackass films did too.
