Actually looks quite funny. The scene with the money is hilarious.

The scene where he goes on stage and throws the money was worth it.

I couldn't see how it would work as a full length film but that trailer looks really good!

Looks so funny, making it rain at the children's pageant was just so funny. The funeral scene may also be a classic

The title of this film makes me think it should be subtitled: 'The Jimmy Savile Story'

Went to see this last night. And I cannot wait to see it again! I think there was only one moment in the entire film that wasn't hilarious. But the sheer amount of great moments outweighed it 10/1. My personal favourite was the girls night strip club. Oh my god I nearly died.

So its the grandpa character from the Jackass films then? Sort of a Borat/Bruno/Ali G type thing. I think I am going to love it.

It's such a funny film, (i love jackass humor). Jackson Nicoll who plays the little kid (Billy) is such a great actor, how he managed to keep a stright face in some scenes i'll never know. It really was a lol movie.

The best scene was the Beauty Pagent one imo, where Billy is dressed as a little girl I'll be getting this on Blu-Ray once it comes out.

And likely twice as long!

I have to agree it was funny but a lot of the film is spoilt by the trailer especially the beauty pageant which is towards the end of the film.Its still well worth a watch but I think I would have enjoyed it more if I hadn't seen the trailer before!

It looks fun, but what's the nature of the humour?

I ask this because a lot of this 'prank' comedy tends to fall just two ways. Either they make fools of themselves (often very amusingly), or they make fools of other people (not keen on being partly complicit in innocent people's embarrassment etc. Makes me a little uncomfortable. Doubtless this is seen as 'edgy' or whatever, but I am older than fourteen).

From what I've seen of them, the Jackass crew always seemed to fall into the former catergory more than the latter, so I may give it a shot.

I saw it as the actors making themselves look stupid while getting the reactions of the public weather good or bad.

Did not enjoy this at all. Awful acting and terrible storyline forced into it. Half the laughs were awkward laughs and the other half we seen in the trailer. Far too much time between funny bits too.

What were you expecting story wise, Titanic, Saving Private Ryan, Casablanca ?

This was done by the Jackass crew, not Spielberg

But there was no need to crowbar it in there. It didn't fit, it did nothing for the film.

Watched this over the weekend and if your a fan of Jackass, go see it, if not, don't bother.

Its funny as hell if you enjoy the Jackass style humour, otherwise its cringeworthy.

I laughed my ass off, my other half was not impressed at all and our friends both wanted to leave about half way through, so they did and they weren't the only ones I saw walking out of the cinema never to return. I wound up watching the last 30 minutes on my own in a half empty cinema.

I enjoyed it, but its a pretty wretched film really if I'm honest.

To be fair, the storyline was not was the film was about.

It was only there because every film needs a storyline, but essentially, it was a Jackass style series of set-ups strung together.

I guess the only point that we disagree with is that the film needed a storyline. We all knew what it was before going in to the screening.
