Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa

Bill C’s Review – 4 out of 5

This is a very rude and crude Candid Camera-type movie. It stars Johnny Knoxville of Jackass fame along with the amazing 8-year-old, Jackson Nicoll. Probably the only thing more amazing than the great job he does is that his parents let him do it.

While some parts went over the line—even for me—for the most part I found this film very funny. This movie is very Borat-like.  If you liked Borat, there’s a good chance you’ll like this. If you didn’t like Borat or didn’t go because it offended your sensibilities, stay far, far away. I was trying to decide which movie was ruder and cruder. I was leaning towards Bad Grandpa, but then I remembered the nude wrestling scene in Borat….

Bill I’s Review – 4 out of 5

Agree with Bill’s review, I loved it. Very funny throughout, the kid is incredible, and I wondered while I was watching, but at the end during closing credits I was convinced that the “real people” who are pranked were not actors, and didn’t know what was coming. Very Borat-like, but with a touching story grounded in reality of a boy who needs his grandpa.
