(2013) (Johnny Knoxville, Jackson Nicoll) (R)
- 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.
- 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.
