There’s really not much you can say about a Jackass movie besides answering the question is it funny or not? The answer depends on whether you find juvenile pranks recorded by hidden camera humorous. I find this kind of comedy hilarious, so I thought Bad Grandpa was AWE-some! It is funny from beginning to end. I laughed so hard I farted. I farted so hard that I peed. The resulting diaper rash, totally worth it!
Johnny Knoxville, you owe me a clean pair of underwear and a zinc oxide ointment rub down.
Bad Grandpa will likely appeal to a wider audience than the usual Jackass crowd because it unfolds as a story, unlike the previous movies which are just a series of unrelated stunts. There are a few physical stunts, but for the most part the comedy is in watching the unwitting citizens who have found themselves thrust into these bizarre situations.
There are adult themes and situations, so it’s not for the children, but the pranks are definitely aimed at the child in all of us.
