REVIEW: BAD GRANDPA
OVERVIEW: “The year’s funniest movie” (Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune), the boisterous road trip JACKASS PRESENTS: BAD GRANDPA hits the gas on January 28, 2014 when it arrives on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and VOD from Paramount Home Media Distribution. Jackass ringleader Johnny Knoxville reprises his role as 86-year-old Irving Zisman in the story of a crotchety old man unexpectedly saddled with the care of his 8-year-old grandson, Billy (Jackson Nicoll). The two generations of troublemakers soon develop a bond, as they hustle their way across the heartland of America pursuing hijinks and pulling pranks on unsuspecting, real-life people—all of whom had no idea they were starring in a hidden camera film and “one of the sharpest comedies of the year.”(Scott Bowles, USA Today).
JACKASS PRESENTS: BAD GRANDPA will be available on Blu-ray Combo Pack with an Unrated Cut crammed full of even more outrageous footage, along with the theatrical version of the film. The combo pack features UltraViolet™ or a digital copy and also includes over an hour of behind-the-scenes antics, deleted scenes and alternate reactions from real people. The film will also be available as a single-disc DVD.
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.
Real people in unreal situations, making for one really messed up comedy.
