Johnny Knoxville in old-age makeup. Pranks. An impressionable child. What could possibly go wrong? One of our most anticipated movies of the fall hit the VMAs this weekend and gets a new poster in advance of its October release.
There’s no getting around the fact that MTV has been the home of “Jackass” for years, but even if it weren’t, we’d still be pimping “Bad Grandpa” here at MTV Geek. There’s something wonderfully fun about comedic irresponsibility and kids getting up to shenanigans with foul-mouthed pranksters. Will this blend of narrative and caught-on-camera comedy work the same magic as the previous “Jackass” features? We’re hoping so.
From the official synopsis:
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.
“Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa” will be in theaters October 25.
