What’s The Story…
86-year-old Irving Zisman has just become a widower and is very happy to be free. His grandson Billy seems to be a nice kid who loves fishing.
When Billy’s mom is sent to prison for drugs, grandpa agrees to drive Billy from Nebraska to live with Billy’s no-good, pot-smoking dad in North Carolina. While on their drive, grandpa and Billy get into all kinds of mischief, from creating disturbances in bingo parlors or convenience stores to running over plaster penguins.
Billy often must find his grandpa after his drunken misadventures. Eventually they even enter a disguised Billy in a child beauty pageant. After their time together, grandpa realizes how much he loves Billy and decides to keep him.
Bad Grandpa Movie Review…
I had to wait a few days to stop laughing so I could write this review. Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa is awesome. I’ve been a big fan of Jackass since it started and have loved the movies (except the last one, they were too obsessed with trying to shoot, jam, cram or insert objects into their ass’s… lol).
I wasn’t sure how good Bad Grandpa would be with the entire movie focusing on just Knoxville as the Grandpa and Nicoll as his Grandson, but it didn’t disappoint me at all, It was awesome right down to the old Lincoln that he was driving.
Don’t waste your time thinking that they showed all the good stuff in the TV Commercials or Movie Trailers… their’s plenty more to be seen then just the highlights, Jackson Nicoll is absolutely perfect in his part as Billy the Grandson, you just can’t help but feel sorry for the kid and he’s funny at the same time.
I can’t help but feel that Nicoll would be perfect as Melissa McCarthy’s son for a sequel to Identity Thief… ~Swooby~
