JACKASS PRESENTS: BAD GRANDPA Review. Nothing Short Of Clever


Once again RAMA comes through with another great review. Make sure to follow him on Twitter and LIKE his Facebook Page.

It’s not as hysterical as I expected it to be but JACKASS PRESENTS: BAD GRANDPA has its great hilarious moments and I for one who’s a big fan of JACKASS franchise, am glad to see Johnny Knoxville’s character, Irving Zisman got himself a big screen treatment. Might as well make a movie about him, I mean it’s not like Knoxville gets bombarded with other movie offers.

86 year-old Irving Zisman is on a journey across America with the most unlikely companion, 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.

The way to describe JACKASS PRESENTS: BAD GRANDPA is much like Borat movie. Both are road trips, both about a character who pretends to behave like they’re oblivious or naive and they speak their minds without filter or discretion. The difference is in the mission. Borat was out to reach Pamela Anderson, whereas Irving wants to reach his good-for-nothing son in law, so that he wouldn’t have to continue taking care of his grandson.

Just like any JACKASS presentation, BAD GRANDPA too have a series of its own candid camera pranks that aims to offend the marked targets in order to get us audience laughing our asses off and for the most part, it works wonders. Much of it also thanks to little kid Billy (Jackson Nicoll) who’s got balls the size of Texas, willing to say the darndest things to strangers.

It’s no surprise that Oscar nominated Spike Jonze (Where The Wild Things Are) is once again credited to and associated with this latest installment, Jonze has a long history with the JACKASS boys and their movies. So I’d like to believe that Jonze has an impactful contribution to how the relationship between Irving and his grandson Billy develop and progress throughout this movie.

There are times when the pranks just don’t work and I think it’s partly because after a while, Irvin’s constant openly need for sex just gets old as he is. You can only take so much juvenile flirtations and pick up lines. I gotta hand it to Johnny Knoxville tho, for a man who’s done these kinds of dangerous stunts and pranks for years, even to the point of almost getting arrested or people almost beating him up, the man just keeps keeping on. He has made this some kind of his own work of art.

I wouldn’t call JACKASS PRESENTS: BAD GRANDPA as a movie that will get you rolling on the floor, the humor is not entirely consistent,.. but if you’re patient enough to sit through til the final scene/prank involving a kid pageant (a scene that’s reminiscent to Little Miss Sunshine), you’ll find JACKASS PRESENT: BAD GRANDPA nothing short of clever.

Taron Egerton Is Playing Elton John In Biopic 'Rocketman'

Regular listeners to the Empire Podcast (sorry about the whole Call Me By Your Name theme ear worm, incidentally) will recall that we had Taron Egerton as a guest on the 300th episode, recorded in front of an audience on Valentine's Day. He talked up his hope that Elton John biopic Rocketman would finally come together, and now Paramount is closing a deal to finance and distribute the film worldwide.

The film, which has been through at least one previous incarnation (Michael Gracey directing Tom Hardy in the lead) is reuniting the Eddie The Eagle team of Egerton, director Dexter Fletcher and producer Matthew Vaughn, who has been trying to get the movie made for a while, with Elton's blessing and the support of his company, Rocket Pictures.
