QUICK TAKE:
Comedy: A frequently inappropriate elderly man takes his 8-year-old grandson on a road trip to return the boy to his deadbeat father.
PLOT:
Irving Zisman (JOHNNY KNOXVILLE) has just lost his wife of many years, and he couldn't be happier. It means this 80-something old man can now date again after not having had sexual relations since the 1990s. But his plans are put on hold when his daughter, Kimmy (GEORGINA CATES), is sent to prison for drugs and his 8-year-old grandson, Billy (JACKSON NICOLL), becomes his responsibility.

Irving knows what he must do. He must drive the kid from Lincoln, Neb., to Raleigh, N.C., to reunite him with his deadbeat dad, Chuck (GREG HARRIS), a dope-smoking never-do-well who really doesn't want anything to do with the kid. Chuck, though, changes his mind when he learns he can get $600 from the state for being a single parent with the other parent in jail.

So, Irving and Billy set off on a road trip in which the two get into all sorts of misadventures. Irving gets into trouble at an African-American strip club, runs afoul of a supermarket manager after shoplifting, and crashes a wedding. Billy, meanwhile, enters a beauty pageant as a girl and causes an uproar when he performs a dance routine best left to the gentlemen's clubs his very bad grandpa frequents.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Older teens who have seen the "Jackass" TV show and movies will have some interest.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For strong crude and sexual content throughout, language, some graphic nudity, and brief drug use.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
