DVD Release: Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa .5

July 8, 2014

Bad Grandpa .5 DVD

Today, Paramount is releasing Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa .5 on DVD & Blu-ray.  A companion to last year’s admittedly amusing Bad Grandpa, this new feature takes us behind the scenes of the impressive makeup which got the film an Oscar nomination, edited together with some very funny interviews and outtakes involving Ellie (Catherine Keener) and Gloria (Spike Jonze).

Although being advertised as a sequel of sorts to the story of Irving Zisman (Johnny Knoxville), Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa .5 is essentially an extended making of featurette that might have been more at home as a bonus feature with the original release.  But it’s still fun to hear the actors talk about pranking real people, and this is an entertaining glimpse at their comedic process with lots of new footage, that is worth a look for anyone who enjoyed the first film.

The DVD includes no bonus features.

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa .5 is 86 minutes and rated 14A.
