    Is Knoxville going soft on us? Nah. Bad Grandpa is still the f***ed-up family movie of choice, especially if your family has done jail time. show more

    The uneven result is definitely not for prudish moviegoers, definitely funny for everyone else, and even approaches poignancy in one or two scenes. show more

    Rude, wrong and laugh-till-you-snort funny, Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa not only stands as the best installment (by bounds) of Johnny Knoxville's hidden-camera franchise; it's one of the sharpest comedies of the year. show more

    Some of these gags are hilarious. show more

    It’s the kind of outrageous comedy that you might even take your folks to, though probably not your kids. Say what you will about Harmony Korine and his demented geriatrics, at least they take their trash seriously. show more

    In the few moments where he's left to prank people on his own, Bad Grandpa doesn't treat him like the clichéd potty mouthed kid out for shock value. Instead, he uses his childlike innocence to make the adults more uncomfortable than his grandpa's raunchier shenanigans ever could. show more

    Bad Grandpa obviously is not for everyone, but Johnny Knoxville and “Jackass” fans will eat it up. show more

    As Jackass japes go, though, Bad Grandpa was better in concept and in its short, punchy TV commercials than it is as a feature. show more

    This whole movie is pretty much a mental colon blow. show more

    Johnny Knoxville is now 42, and he’s clearly torn. He still wants to be a Jackass, but in a movie with an actual story that offers something even slightly more substantive than cringing at other people’s self-inflicted pain and humiliation. show more

    I have never walked out of a movie in my life until now. I can\'t believe they made this and to top it off there is a 75% viewer score on it. Absolutely crazy what we call entertainment now days.

    Without a doubt this was the WORST film I\'ve have ever seen. We lasted 30 minutes and then had to leave. We asked for a refund but to no avail. Save your money and see anything - and I mean anything - but this.

    Hysterically funny. Very different from the first two Jackass Movies. Anyone who didn\'t think this movie was funny needs to seriously unclench.
