The creators of Jackass are up to their old antics again. Johnny Knoxville, Bob Saget, Georgina Cates, Jackson Nicoll, Jeff Tremaine, and Tony Hawk all came out for the premiere of Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa.

The previous three Jackass branded films were a series of pranks and stunts with no storyline. Bad Grandpa has the same hilarious stunts and pranks, but has featured a story. Johnny Knoxville went into detail about the film: “Grandpa (his character), his wife just died. It was a horrible marriage and one of the happiest days of his life. So he is going to go out and meet some ladies. That is ruined by a little rally stopper named Billy Jackson. I have to take him across the country to get him to his father. We begrudgingly bond along the way and prank everyone in sight.”

Bob Saget commented on the movie and the franchise saying, “Obviously it’s renegade and guerrilla comedy. And you also know that the spirit of it is not coming from a mean place, because Johnny Knoxville is a nice man.”

Echoing Bob Saget, Tony Hawk said, “It’s hilarious! I mean, this is some of Jackass’ finest work. It’s not just about ridiculous stunts and being idiots, they really have a way to finesse it and make it interesting and make it fun to watch…I think that these guys are really really clever.”

Go see this latest installment of the Jackass franchise – in cinemas now!
