After seeing the trailer, this will be THE BEST MOVIE OF 2013!
For those of you who know me, and now for those of you who don’t, I like.. wait, scratch that.. I LOVE anything politically incorrect, i.e. Family Guy, The Dave Chappelle Show, The Catherine Tate Show, and so on. These shows break the molds of what is politically correct and push the boundaries to what we (the audience) consider taboo.
And then there are movies that do this too! Some of you might remember “Bruno“, from 2009 played by funny man Sacha Baron Cohen. “Gay Austrian fashion reporter Brüno Gehard is fired from his own television show, Funkyzeit mit Brüno (Funkytime with Brüno) after disrupting a Milan Fashion week catwalk, and his lover Diesel leaves him for another man. Accompanied by his assistant’s assistant, Lutz, he travels to the United States to become “the biggest gay Austrian superstar since Arnold Schwarzenegger”. (Wikepedia)
In one scene from Bruno, he coordinates an interview with Paula Abdul. An unsuspecting Paula enters a house that Bruno has rented and sees that Bruno has used (what we assume to be) Mexican Immigrant workers as furniture. It was BRILLIANT!
Movies like “Bruno” can cross the line and make us feel so uncomfortable yet make us howl with laughter.
“Bad Grandpa” (Rated R) is going to be one of those movies.
On October 25, 2013, “Bad Grandpa” will be released nation wide. Mischievous octogenarian Irving Zisman (Johnny Knoxville) returns to stir up some more trouble in this geriatric Jackass spin-off from Paramount Pictures and MTV Films. A hidden-camera comedy featuring unscripted responses to outrageous situations, Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa follows Zisman and his 8-year-old grandson Billy (Jackson Nicoll) on a debauched cross-country road trip featuring male strippers, rowdy bikers, and the wildest children’s beauty-pageant performance every captured on camera. (Fandango) This movie is so wrong, yet so right!
“Bad Grandpa” Trailer: (Warning, this movie is Rated R and not suitable for children under 17)
I’ll be doing a review of the movie, so look for that here on October 26th!
