Lazy Goomba’s Thoughts
The Good: Well this is just like the Jackass movies from before, so most people can know what to expect. I find most of the skits from those movies, along with the new Bad Grandpa film to be extremely entertaining. My favorite prank that they perform is when Johnny Knoxville goes into an African American strip club on ladies night. Essentially there is only guys dancing erotically for the females at the club. Johnny goes in as an old man and chats with some of the ladies before eventually stripping down himself, revealing a rather…. lengthy set of… balls…. But nonetheless, it was a hilarious scene and the biggest roar of laughter came from that moment.
The bad: I didn’t find too many negative scenes in this movie that I can remember too clearly. I felt like one of the scenes was a little bit scripted, but really I have no proof of that so I feel like I can’t count that as a negative. Overall, it can be slightly immature sometimes, but I loved pretty much every skit within the film, so I suppose I am an immature person then.
The “painful”: My favorite scene is when Johnny Knoxville tries to ride the little kid airplane ride. He goes soaring right into the department store in front of him.Lazy Goomba Movie Critic/Cat Enthusiast
