Real people. Real reactions. Real messed up.
86-year-old Irving Zisman is on a journey across America with the most unlikely companion: his 8 year-old grandson, Billy.

A combination of at times funny pranks where the "storyline" is just an excuse to throw those pranks together. Largely uneventful, though the moment with G.O.C. (Guardians of the Children) was surprisingly touching and came out of nowhere. If nothing else, this is a part you should consider watching. The pageant section too was slightly more than "just a prank", as it brought with it a lesson to those awful mothers, not that they would ever understand the point being made.

The very premise of an entire movie based off one of the sketches from a precious Jackass movie was pretty questionable to begin with. And although there were a few laughs here and there, it just didn't have the originality of the stunts from those movies. The weak storyline seemed to be just pasted on, lacking any of the intelligence or social commentary found in something like Borat, which pulled this type of movie off a million times better. The kid was precociously cute and Knoxville sold the old man get-up, but I'd rather just see Jackass 4.
