Bad Grandpa Review Upodcast

Bad Grandpa is the latest release in the long line of Jackass related features, either TV or movie screen based.  Starring Johnny Knoxville as the aforementioned ill-behaved grandfather. Jeff Tramaine directing and Spike Jonze and  others behind the scenes, return to breathe life into a previously thought dead corpse.

Asim and Martin take a trip across country (London’s massive we’ll have you know) to check out a truly 21st century grandfather-grandson relationship.    Our initial fears about a series of random skits (a la Jackass) being stitched together prove to be unfounded and we’re given quite a thoughtful movie with some genuinely funny and occasionally moving moments.

In other news, Martin talks about how far behind in Breaking Bad he is (no chance of spoilers here folks) and that he is miraculously fully up to date with The Blacklist.  Asim talks about Pacific Rim and how sometimes waiting for the conversation to be over can elevate watching a movie.

Bad GrandPa “Cinnamon” Clip

It’s always hilarious to see kids act and say inappropirate things. The Jackass team behind Bad Grandpa are very aware of that and I assume quite a bit of their forthcoming release is centered around that premise.

Here is the clip, a new poster and a 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 Nicholl) 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.

 

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa crashes in to UK cinemas on Wednesday 23rd October

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa Poster and trailer

Here’s the new poster and a first trailer for Jackass’ spin off movie Bad Grandpa, starring Jonny Knoxville as Irving Zisman.

Maybe not the most popular of Jackass characters and certainly not my favourite, but they seem to have mixed in real people with their pranks into a narrative reminiscent of Sacha Baron Cohen’s Borat.

It certainly seems to work and the trailer looks hilarious!
