True to the Jackass formula, some gags come off better than others, but there's some doozies in its midst.

Jackass Bad Grandpa

By elsab2003
I see a lot of films and this is by far one of the worst ones. This one was not funny, it was just nasty. I walked out half way into the film. Not worth going to.... sorry to say I flushed my money...
