Johnny takes the Knox

Johnny Knoxville and the rest of the Jackass team indulge their love of crude and puerile humour in this freewheeling comedy, which hangs the usual array of toe-curling stunts on a gossamer thin narrative.

Knoxville dons latex to play his signature character Irving Zisman, a badly behaved 86-year-old, who embarks on a road trip with his eight-year-old grandson Billy (Jackson Nicholl) to deliver the boy to his father.

En route, Irving introduces Billy to unsuspecting members of the public including male strippers and biker bar patrons, and the duo wreaks havoc at a child beauty pageant and a funeral home.
