Synopsis: Irving Zisman (played by Johnny Knoxville) is a recent widower who finds out he must also take care of his 8-year-old grandson Billy (Jackson Nicoll) after finding out his daughter has to go back to prison for a parole violation. Intending to celebrate his newfound bachelorhood by living a life of total debauchery, Irving makes the plan to drive from Nebraska to North Carolina in an effort to leave Billy with his deadbeat dad Chuck (Greg Harris), who agrees to take Billy in solely because he'll get child support from the state for doing so (Irving also plans on disposing of his dead wife along the way, so her body accompanies them in the trunk for the entire drive.) Though Irving sees Billy to be a nuisance, they both manage to form a bond with each other as they get into a myriad of antics along the way. Will Irving leave Billy with his deadbeat dad, or will have have a change of heart? And what in the world will happen to Irving's dead wife?

When I saw the previews for the film, I figured it was going to be weak because what was advertized on TV wasn't that laugh out loud funny. Upon seeing the film, however, it was clear most of it couldn't be shown because it was too hot for TV. I laughed hard and often throughout seeing this movie. Just when I thought they couldn't have topped it further, they took it up to a whole other level. Jackson Nicholl was the perfect counterpart to Johnny Knoxville in this case, as he was as up to task on conducting pranks as any of the veteran Jackass crew would have been. Kudos to everyone who got pranked yet weren't too stuck on themselves to appear in the film; the credits were long because everyone who agreed to allow their likeness to be used on camera received an actor credit as themselves. Though the movie was wrought with bad manners, there were also elements that showed how real people still do good in the world on a day-to-day basis (such as a church group who was willing to grieve with a lone widower, or a biker group who stood up for children.)

Though people with more prudent tastes may be turned off by some of the vulgarity, fans of Jackass or Borat will undoubtedly love this film. I recommend it to fans of comedies and age-appropriate people who want something fun to watch.

This movie was a lot funnier than I was expecting. Knoxville's Irving character is dirty, crude, and hilarously BAD! When his wife dies, Irving must take his grandson Billy on a road trip to get him to his whitetrash dad. Throughout the film, Irving and Billy prank people at strip clubs, convenient stores, restaurants, beauty pageants and much more. Jackson Nicoll who played Billy really has a lot of guts to dress up like a girl at a beauty pageant and do a pole-dance. If you love dark humor, you'll love JACKASS PRESENTS: BAD GRANDPA!!!

One of the best flicks released in a great long while.

Ignore those 1 & 2 star reviewers. They are not people you want to be acquainted with & they probably drive Volvos anyways.

Funny all the way through. I really loved the penguin bit! A great, nasty, rauncy, silly, gross comedy that had a story line. If you wanna laugh, please, please get this movie!

Both the picture and audio quality are fairly good. There is 60 minutes of total bonus content.

I loved how the best scenes were not shown in commercials or trailers for obvious reasons. It's a similar setup as Borat but much better.

Watch this one soon before anybody spoils the surprises for you. With so many staged youtube videos and fake reactions, it's refreshing to see genuine shock out of regular people on the street. Johnny Knoxville does and amazing job of becoming an old man and his "grandson" is just the right mixture of innocent and irreverent. It's too bad the game has been exposed now because I would have loved to see them hit a few more towns. It obviously takes a lot of advance preparation to hide the cameras in just the right places at the right time. Howlingly funny.
