    Sometimes it's a delicate comedy-drama with Oscar-worthy performances and touches of "A Streetcar Named Desire." And sometimes it's a foul-mouthed "Candid Camera" full of poop jokes and starring Johnny Knoxville in old-man makeup.

    There’s a restless inventiveness to many of the gags that are matched only by the outrageousness of their surroundings.

    In the few moments where he's left to prank people on his own, Bad Grandpa doesn't treat him like the clichéd potty mouthed kid out for shock value. Instead, he uses his childlike innocence to make the adults more uncomfortable than his grandpa's raunchier shenanigans ever could. Full Review

    Rude, wrong and laugh-till-you-snort funny, Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa not only stands as the best installment (by bounds) of Johnny Knoxville's hidden-camera franchise; it's one of the sharpest comedies of the year.

    It’s the kind of outrageous comedy that you might even take your folks to, though probably not your kids. Say what you will about Harmony Korine and his demented geriatrics, at least they take their trash seriously.

    For all the fecal matter flying around, and all the dick jokes, Bad Grandpa turns out to be an act of redemption: It’s the anti-Borat. And for all its flaws, it might just be the most heartwarming movie of the year.

  • Neil Genzlinger

    It’s hard to score big laughs with hidden-camera material these days because there has been so much of it since the “Jackass” TV show, but Mr. Knoxville and his young sidekick still land a few jaw-droppers.

  • Betsy Sharkey

    It's amazing what a little story and a little substance add to a movie. It might not be a giant leap for mankind, but it is a small step for one old man.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Matt Singer

    Though the plot is predictable, individual scenes (and individual targets) are anything but. In the film’s best moments, it’s more than funny; it’s exciting, and almost as daring as its indomitable lead actor.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    Even at its low ebb, the movie effuses an infectious, mischief-making joy.

    Variety Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    At the end, when the grandson, in drag, enters a little-girl beauty contest, the movie far outdoes the crowning moment of "Little Miss Sunshine." But most of Bad Grandpa lacks that delirious mad kick of surprise.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Kyle Ryan

    No one will ever mistake the Jackass franchise for good cinema, but it never aspired to that. It was always about allowing the gleeful anarchy of the TV series to escape the constraints of television — to be more outrageous, gross, and profane than the FCC would ever allow.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Is Knoxville going soft on us? Nah. Bad Grandpa is still the f***ed-up family movie of choice, especially if your family has done jail time.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Bill Zwecker

    Bad Grandpa obviously is not for everyone, but Johnny Knoxville and “Jackass” fans will eat it up.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Steve Rose

    Sacha Baron Cohen's "Borat" set the bar very high for this type of narrative-driven prankery, and in comparison, Bad Grandpa comes across as disjointed and aimless.

  • John DeFore

    Some of these gags are hilarious.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Simon Crook

    True to the Jackass formula, some gags come off better than others, but there's some doozies in its midst.

    Empire Full Review
  • Dan Kois

    The movie itself is not unsatisfying, though it’s less fun than previous Jackass films, and has a worse title.

    Slate Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    In structure and concept, the film resembles the faux-documentary “Borat,” with the distinction that the cameras here are all hidden. And that is where the film falls down and can’t get up.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

    The uneven result is definitely not for prudish moviegoers, definitely funny for everyone else, and even approaches poignancy in one or two scenes.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    By Jackass standards, Bad Grandpa is benign—it’s neither as fun nor as thrilling as watching Knoxville play tetherball with a beehive.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    An almost sweet sensibility emerges by the end of Bad Grandpa. Young Jackson Nicholl is a real find: The kid can really hold his own against Knoxville’s master pranker.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    As Jackass japes go, though, Bad Grandpa was better in concept and in its short, punchy TV commercials than it is as a feature.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Sam Adams

    There are a handful of brilliant set pieces, including a scorched-earth attack on child beauty pageants. But this exercise in wink-nudge bad taste simply leaves a bad taste in your mouth.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Ashley Clark

    There are a couple of bawdy sight gags that hit the mark, although the outtakes in the end credits provide the film’s funniest moments. The cast and crew appear to have had a ball making it, at least.

  • James Mottram

    Most of the gags fall flatter than a Knoxville belly-flop.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Dave McGinn

    Johnny Knoxville is now 42, and he’s clearly torn. He still wants to be a Jackass, but in a movie with an actual story that offers something even slightly more substantive than cringing at other people’s self-inflicted pain and humiliation.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    This whole movie is pretty much a mental colon blow.

    New York Post Full Review
  • R. Kurt Osenlund

    A choppy, feature-length progression of crude, predictable gags, the film plays like a variety show, and yet its main attraction is barely funny enough to warrant his own brief sketch.
