Trailer Debut: Jackass Presents – Bad Grandpa

BAD GRANDPA

The Jackass boys are back at it again, albeit with a fresh spin on their typical prankery.

Their upcoming flick, Bad Grandpa, is the first with something of a narrative (and, presumably, a script).

It follows Johnny Knoxville’s Irving Zisman, a cantankerous old man who causes havoc with his grandson, Billy (Jackson Nicholl).

We’ve seen Knoxville don the old age gear many, many times before, but the scripted element actually makes this new proposition seem fresh (though, as a fan of all three Jackass movies, I should admit that this isn’t a franchise I necessarily felt required freshening up).

Similar to Borat and Bruno before it, Knoxville and Nicholl are the only ones in on the gag, meaning plenty of innocent bystanders bear witness to the chaos created by the Jackass team.

And even though the final joke in the trailer is a blatant rip-off of Little Miss Sunshine’s big ending, it made me laugh very, very hard.

Jackass Presents – Bad Grandpa, directed by Jeff Tremaine, hits local cinemas November 14, 2013.
