Along the way Irving will introduce the young and impressionable Billy to people, places and situations that give new meaning to the term childrearing.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Wesley Morris, Grantland
"Like the lime-green bingo dabber contents Irving drinks down to the horror of his seatmates, it's an acquired taste."
‑ Linda Barnard, Toronto Star
"An unfunny 'comedy' full of cheap crudity and punches down at targets who don't deserve it. For some movies there should be hazard pay."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"Stuffs male jackassery into a paper-thin piņata of a contrived plot, then blindly bashes us over the head, again and again, with a stick marked 'SEE WHAT AN OLD MAN AND A YOUNG BOY CAN GET AWAY WITH!'"
‑ Brian Gibson, Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)
"Lewd, crude, tasteless...It's when Irving dresses Billy up as a girl in a kids beauty pageant that things get crazy. It's one of those moments, folks, where the angels of good taste and decorum desert you and you find yourself laughing like an idiot."
‑ Jim Schembri, 3AW
"Onlookers occasionally glance into the camera, a pretty good sign that people are hip to these prankster movies now and just play along."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"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."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"It's foul and filthy but only occasionally funny."
‑ , Daily Record [UK]
"...ultimately just another misguided effort from Knoxville and his band of pranksters."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"In this sporadically hilarious off-colour comedy, stupid, misogynistic America is skewered by a paradoxical creation: an actor young and reckless enough to raise hell and a character old enough to know better."
‑ Luke Buckmaster, Crikey
"It's been 11 years since Jackass: The Movie, and three since Jackass 3D, although it feels a lot longer than that."
‑ Dave McGinn, Globe and Mail
"Sometimes joy buzzers - and pratfalls, and funny costumes - are really all you need for a laugh or two. Or even a three-star comedy."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"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"
‑ James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk
"Less violent and less mean-spirited than Jackass, Bad Grandpa is a funny little diversion and that's about it, but that's okay."
‑ Tim Martain, The Mercury
"You'll cough out some second-hand chuckles reliving the moment Irving Pic-ass-o'ed the wall."
‑ Liam Maguren, Flicks.co.nz
