Behold the trailer for Bad Grandpa, the new movie from the Jackass crew

Jul. 31, 2013by: Alex Maidy

I am not ashamed to say that I enjoy the JACKASS movies. Yes, they are dumb. Yes, they are crass. But, some part of me cannot help but laugh at idiots falling down and hurting themselves. I just can't help it. But, the latest film, BAD GRANDPA, is not like the three JACKASS movies that came before it. This movie actually has a plot!

86 year-old Irving Zisman is on a journey across America with the most unlikely companions, his 8 year-old Grandson Billy in "Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa.” This October, the signature Jackass character Irving Zisman (Johnny Knoxville) and Billy (Jackson Nicoll) will take movie audiences along for the most insane hidden camera road trip ever captured on camera.

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. Real people in unreal situations, making for one really messed up comedy.

So, what we have here is the "evolution" of the JACKASS concept: take a fictional character and plot and work in real reactions. Just like Sacha Baron Cohen's BORAT, seeing average people cower in stunned horror at an old man and a child doing unspeakable things is worth the price of admission alone. Johnny Knoxville is the most talented, acting-wise, of any of the JACKASS crew, so he is the natural choice to anchor this new project.

If you didn't like the other JACKASS movies, you won't like BAD GRANDPA, but as long as they are cheap to make and people flock to see them, we will continue to get them. JACKASS PRESENTS BAD GRANDPA opens in theaters on October 25, 2013.

I need this. HAHAHAHAHA - The Irving Zissman bits were some of my favorites in the Jackass movies. The ending of this trailer was pure fucking gold. I am so there.

They blew their load on the stripper scene. Nothing in that movie could be funnier than that.

I'm in, at least there won't be as much male nudity in this. Its also kinda funny to see him enter the little kid in a beauty pageant, and when he turns it into a stripper act, the mothers of the other girls get all "oh my this is too much sexualization of a small child" even though they are all doing it with their own children already.

Don't you look at my wife!

Always loved the grandpa parts in Jackass. While initially I thought this would be a dumb idea, the trailer did make me laugh. Could be a fun movie.

The grandpa bits from the Jackass movies used to be my least favorite but, damn, they've really managed to make it work here.

OMG that looked fuckin funny as hell. The end with the striping LOLLLLLLLLL classic. I was rolling on the floor. And the random lady who claps then realizes shes the only one clapping LOL genius. I'll be seeing this for sure. The jackass films are guilty plessures its what adam sandler films should be.

Hahaha, looking great! Love me some Bad Grandpa.

I didn't even know this was in development! A little sad it's not a full Jackass film with all the crazy antics, but a standalone film centering on Bad Grandpa? I can't think of a better skit to start off on!

Looks hilarious from that trailer. I think this will be the one and only time I'll watch it, though, because comedies have a bad habit of losing the funny after seeing their trailers many times, and especially in the case of these kinds of movies with reactions from people, that are

I think this will be the one and only time I'll watch it, though, because comedies have a bad habit of losing the funny after seeing their trailers many times, and especially in the case of these kinds of movies with reactions from people, that are based mostly on shock value, I am thinking it won't have repeat viewing value like the other Jackass movies.

Or maybe I'm just talking crazy.

Looks great!

Anyone else feel that ending was ripping off Little Miss Sunshine, albeit more adult-oriented?

Wow!

I nearly choked on my dinner. This is so good!! I've always said Cohen is a comedic genius for what he does with his characters in public and now I'm adding Knoxville to the list. I laughed so hard during this trailer.

The Child Beauty Pageant Bit Is Hysterical!

Wow. Just shoving the parents' objectification of their children in their faces was too funny.

It looks great which is odd seeing that I always skipped the Bad Grandpa scenes in the other movies since I didn't find them that funny.

That is odd enough that I think you should go back and try those scenes again. Because this is just an extension of that. If you liked this, you'll like those, and vice-versa.

Looks funny.

The first and third Jackass film are still two of the funniest films I have ever seen. Would love to see a fourth.
