Consensus: Never quite as funny as it wants to be, Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa still offers viewers the timeless pleasures of seeing an old man get his privates stuck in a vending machine.

The wrongs pile up, and there's a clear object of satire. That feels new for the Jackass experience: a target that isn't a crotch. I'd like to see Irv try to strike again with braver gags.

Like the lime-green bingo dabber contents Irving drinks down to the horror of his seatmates, it's an acquired taste.

It's not really a movie. It's Johnny Knoxville and his Jackass crew faking out real people into believing he's 86-year-old Irving Zisman, an old fart bag traveling cross-country.

It's foul and filthy but only occasionally funny.

It's been 11 years since Jackass: The Movie, and three since Jackass 3D, although it feels a lot longer than that.

Sometimes joy buzzers - and pratfalls, and funny costumes - are really all you need for a laugh or two. Or even a three-star comedy.

Bad Grandpa's biggest, most eyebrow-rising surprise may very well be the fact that we actually grow to care about him and Billy by the final reel

Never was found of Jackass, or anything these maniacs have done. Knoxville is terrific at improve and has great comic energy, but none of that is shown here and… More
