86-year-old Irving Zisman is on a journey across America with the most unlikely companion: his 8 year-old grandson, Billy. Along the way Irving will introduce the young and impressionable Billy to people, places and situations that give new meaning to the term childrearing. The duo will encounter male strippers, disgruntled child beauty pageant contestants (and their equally disgruntled mothers), funeral home mourners, biker bar patrons and a whole lot of unsuspecting citizens.
Comedy - Unlike the previous three films spun off from the Jackass TV
series, this uses a story to link its hidden camera stunts and
gross-out gags. But like the previous TV series and movie, there is
a lot of crude, often raunchy humor, and language that makes the film
inappropriate for kids though this film features a lead character who
is 8 years old. Young adult males are the primary target.
PROFANITY: 13 F-words, 17 S-words; 2 GD's; a number of others. SEX/NUDITY: Sexy dancing with nudity; prosthetics depicting male genitals. VIOLENCE: Comic falls and hits. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Alcohol, tobacco, marijuana. ACTION: None. COMEDY: Constant crude verbal and physical humor; cute kid humor; old people humor.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 50 moviegoers:
These moviegoer reviews are just as mixed as the reviews from movie critics.
TEENS: GREAT REVIEWS from both males and females! Nearly everyone loved "Bad Grandpa."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: Nearly all the males loved "Bad Grandpa," as did over half the ladies. A small percentage of females rated it poor.
ADULTS: As could be expected, this movie is not really a movie adults enjoyed. Only two of the seven males really enjoyed "Bad Grandpa." Three rated it just average and two rated it below average. The females really didn't care for it. Only one rated it as high as above average. Two more rated it average and the other two rated it low and very low.
