Reviews for this film from our members:
| [New – 2/13/14] Dragan Antulov @ Draxblog VI [Croatian]
Edwin Arnaudin @ Ashvegas
Excerpt: By no means attempting Borat-like social statements (thank goodness), the intergenerational road trip story allows Bad Grandpa to be more than simply a collection of skits.
Luke Bonanno @ DVDizzy.com
Excerpt: It’s too mean-spirited, ugly, and tasteless, qualities that sadly seem to explain the mass appeal.
Tim Brayton @ Antagony & Ecstasy
Excerpt: The only reason I won’t say that the film isn’t as shocking as it thinks itself to be, is because it’s not really very clear that it even thinks that it’s shocking.
Kevin Carr @ 7M Pictures
Excerpt: “Jackass Presents Bad Grandpa” is meant to get the audience to laugh, and whether you want to or not, I dare anyone to watch this film without at least a few chuckles and surprises.
Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
Excerpt: Knoxville’s an old hand at this stuff, but his young costar is an amazing natural, fearless and convincing in his staged exploits.
Billy Donnelly @ This Is Infamous
Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
Excerpt: What’s the joke here?
Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
Excerpt: Another gleeful ‘Jackass’ gross-out….
Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
Excerpt: The humor is based more on real people’s responses than the ridiculous antics themselves. The added component allows Bad Grandpa to triumph where the other Jackass pictures fell short.
Ben Kendrick @ Screen Rant
Excerpt: Hilarious Jackass hijinks with paper thin story filler.
Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
Excerpt: Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa isn’t that sharp nor is it about anything, as Knoxville and his gang are mostly just skewering good taste and mining immature laughs from the reactions of out-on-the-joke bystanders, but they sure are good at it.
Benjamin Kramer @ The Voracious Filmgoer
Mike McGranaghan @ The Aisle Seat
Ross Miller @ Thoughts On Film
Excerpt: For those who find the Borat-style public reaction humour to be their particular cup of tea then there’s just about enough here to make it passable. Just.
Osenlund R. Kurt @ slant Magazine
Tom Santilli @ Examiner.com
Excerpt: Bad Grandpa offers nothing more than an episode of Jackass would and fewer laughs.
