If you haven’t seen the announcement trailer, you can check it out here. Going by the raucous reaction to the video – which played before our Pain & Gain screening earlier this month (review here) – Bad Grandpa may just be a worthy excursion for the Johnny Knoxville character.
Here is the official synopsis for the film, which releases nationwide November 14th this year:
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 child-rearing 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.
