‘Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa’ Trailer: Johnny Knoxville Meets Borat
After three films of increasingly horrifying (and often hilarious) stunts, the ‘Jackass’ crew is doing something a little different for their fourth film. Rather than just string together a collection of skits and scenes, ‘Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa‘ seems takes a more ‘Borat’ approach to things, presenting absurd situations and scenes in front of real, unsuspecting people and using all of the footage to serve a barebones narrative. The first trailer for the film has arrived and we’ll admit it: we laughed.
Based on a recurring character from the show and the films, ‘Bad Grandpa’ focuses on an elderly man (actually Johnny Knoxville in make-up) who engages in all kinds of awful behavior with the help of his young grandson. If you giggle at the thought of unsuspecting people looking on in horror as an elderly man falls through windows, shoplifts or endangers the life of the young boy at his side, this is probably the movie for you. Like with the previous ‘Jackass’ movies, we feel a little guilty for admitting that we’re looking forward to seeing this. Does that make us bad people?
‘Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa’ is scheduled to hit theaters on October 25, 2013, just in time for Halloween…because nothing is scarier than this. What do you think? Does this look funny or does it look like the worst thing ever?
