Whew, glad to be back after some time away with this sneak peek from my new film Action Point.… https://t.co/U3X8aVVoLP
Rocko Akira Clapp - Founder and star of the American franchise 'Jackass' Johnny Knoxville was snapped as he took his family to the Studio City Farmers Market in Los Angeles, California, United States - Sunday 18th January 2015
The trials and tribulations of Irving Zisman and his 8-year-old grandson Bill are being given a great write-up by critics thus far
Jackass is over ten years old at this point, but despite it's lengthy lifespan and various series, movies and offshoot spin-offs, the pranksters are still great at doing what they do. Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa is mostly being lauded by critics, who are praising the numbskull comedy and crazy pranks in the latest outing from Johnny Knoxville and his band of merry men.
Irving and Billy formed a formidable partnership on screen
The film follows 86-year-old Irving Zisman as he and his 8-year-old grandson Billy (Jackson Nicoll) head off on a road trip to remember, reaking havoc wherever they go. On their trip across America, the Jackass favorite and his grandson visit the most unassuming and irresponsible places imaginable for an octogenarian and his young grandchild, running into male strippers, child beauty pageant contestants and their thoroughly unimpressed mothers, mourners at a funeral home, biker bar patrons and a whole heap of unsuspecting embers of the public. As you may expect from a Jackass film, nothing is sacred and nothing is off limits.

Sure it looks hilariously cringeworthy, but hidden camera embarrassment is hardly new territory.

'Bad Grandpa' Will Be Released On The 23rd October In The UK & The 25th Oct. In The USA.
The film follows Knoxville's Zisman and his 8 year-old grandson Billy (Jackson Nicholl) as they traverse the country on what is billed as the most crazy hidden camera road trip ever.

The 'Jackass' crew are wreaking havoc on the unwary streets of America again, this time with one of them playing a crude, clumsy and very wayward grandfather, Irving Zisman, who is taking his young grandson Billy on a long road trip across the States to where his father will take of him. On the way, the kid is doing the babysitting as the 'old man' gets out of control robbing convenience stores, interrupting weddings and causing catastrophes at funerals and kid beauty pageants (the latter at which Billy causes quite a stir with an awkward pole dancing routine). Hidden cameras capture the real, mostly angry and sometimes traumatised reactions of the general public who have probably never prepared themselves to meet such a bad grandpa before.
'Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa' is the latest instalment of the American stunt group's franchise which sees stuntman Johnny Knoxville embarrass, horrify and upset unsuspecting onlookers across America with more shockingly daring pranks than ever before. Doubtlessly one of the funniest flicks of the year, it has been directed by Jeff Tremaine ('Jackass: The Movie', 'Wildboyz') who co-wrote it with Preston Lacy ('TV: The Movie', 'Jackass 3D') and it is set to hit theatres on October 25th 2013.

The trailer for Jonas Akerlund's indie-comedy 'Small Apartments' introduces a superb cast including Matt Lucas, Peter Stormare and Billy Crystal.
Who wouldn't pay to see a comedy movie starring Matt Lucas, Juno Temple, Billy Crystal, Peter Stormare, Amanda Plummer, Rebel Wilson, James Caan, Johnny Knoxville and...wait for it...Dolph Lundgren? Well, that's exactly what you're getting for your money in Small Apartments, which premiered in the UK on March 22, 2013. Nick Nunziata of Chud.com summed the whole thing up in his review of the quirky flick, "They don't make them like this anymore. Actually they've never made them like this before," he wrote.

Franklin Franklin is a wig-donning, Swiss wannabe loner who lives alone in a small apartment having previously lived with his mentally deranged brother Bernard. He's not the only eccentric character at the complex, however; his wacky neighbours include the Liquor store worker Tommy Balls, Tommy's herpes ridden girlfriend Rocky, the beautiful Simone and the ill-tempered Mr. Allspice. One day, Franklin finds himself in a spot of bother when he accidentally murders his landlord Mr. Olivetti when he pays him a visit about the rent (of lack of it). In an attempt to cover up the homicide, he clumsily stages it as a suicide, which the cops become very suspicious of. Things don't get any easier either, as his Franklin's brother dies suddenly from a brain tumour and he ends up getting badly beaten in the street. Will Franklin find that future that he dreams of? Or will his tedious life gradually spiral further out of control?
Continue: Small Apartments Trailer
Relentlessly quirky and strange, this pitch black comedy manages to combine its outrageous silliness with some surprising emotional resonance. Swedish filmmaker Akerlund (who directed Lady Gaga's Telephone) keeps the film's pace snappy as it lurches through a series of crazy situations that aren't remotely believable. But the starry cast manages to hold our interest.
Everything centres on a run-down apartment complex in Los Angeles, where Franklin (Lucas) lives in his dumpy flat, dreaming of someday moving to Switzerland to play his alpine horn in the mountains. Clearly unhinged, Franklin desperately misses his brother Bernard (Marsden), who went away but still sends him a daily audio-tape message. Then on the first day a tape fails to turn up, Franklin's whole life starts to unravel, starting with the fact that his landlord (Stormare) is lying dead on his kitchen floor. Franklin's attempt to get rid of the body draws the attention of two detectives (Crystal and Koechner), who start quizzing the neighbours (Knoxville and Caan). But this is only the start of Franklin's big adventure.
The story is structured as a series of wacky set-pieces set apart by luridly colourful flashbacks and fantasy sequences that fill in the back-stories for each of the characters. As a result, everyone on screen bursts with personality as well as motivations for everything they do, which makes watching them a lot more interesting than we expect. Crystal and Caan emerge as the most engaging people on screen, but even nuttier characters like Lundgren's "Brain Brawn" pop psychologist are fun to watch. By contrast, Lucas gives Franklin an eerily blank face: this is a man who still hasn't figured out who he is.

Arnold Schwarzenegger came true on his promise of 'I'll be back', after he took a break from movies to 'save California from crisis' taking the role of Governor. But is this a triumphant return for the action movie stalwart? Or is the film's title just right.
It would appear as though Arnie hasn't wowed the critics with his latest project, alongside perennial Jackass Johnny Knoxville. It's not the worst film he's ever done, or indeed the silliest, but it certainly won't be remembered as the vindication of one of his most famous catchphrases.
Peter Bradshaw - often regarded as a film snob, although he endorses plenty of mainstream films - speaks positively of the film, but moves towards praise for the director, Kim Jee-woon rather than Arnie. "Korean film-maker Kim Jee-woon gives it plenty of directorial welly, and it's good to see a film with cop cars flying through the air," he writes in his 3/5 review.
Continue reading: Will The Last Stand Be Arnold Schwarzenegger's Last Stand?
Korean filmmaker Kim played with the Western genre before in his wacky 2008 pastiche The Good the Bad the Weird, and this film is just as chaotically uneven, mixing cartoon-style silliness with grisly violence. But the high-energy approach holds our interest, as does Schwarzenegger's immense screen presence in his first starring role since his political career. The film is far too jumbled to hold together, but its sardonic sense of humour makes it a decent guilty pleasure.
Arnie plays Sheriff Owens, who has a quiet routine in his sleepy Arizona-Mexico border town. So when a stranger (Stormare) appears, he sends his deputies (Alexander and Gilford) to investigate. Things get violent quickly, so he deputises a drunken veteran (Santoro) and a moronic gun-nut (Knoxville) to work alongside another deputy (Guzman). What he doesn't yet know is that the baddies are part of an elaborate plan to help a drug kingpin (Noriega) escape from a Law Vegas FBI Agent (Whitaker) and cross the border to freedom in Mexico.
The whizzy plot actually has promise as a straightforward action movie, but Kim throws so much nuttiness at the screen that we can't take anything seriously. The story zings from set-piece to set-piece without much concern for credibility or coherence. It's all very cool, especially the baddie's glimmering, super-fast prototype Corvette, which travels "faster than a chopper" on isolated country roads that are improbably smooth. And his climactic plan to get over the border is astonishingly silly, but played dead straight.
Continue reading: The Last Stand Review
A collection of random shorts that focus mainly on idiotic male behaviour, this portmanteau comedy is only occasionally amusing, never making anything of its astonishing cast. Frankly, we spend most of the time wondering how the filmmakers lured these A-listers to appear in these pointless, nasty little films. And while the premises have potential, not a single one has a decent punchline.
As a prank, two teens make up a banned online film called Movie 43. While their brainly little brother searches for it, he runs across a series of clips that mainly focus on awkward vulgarity between the sexes. Bitter exes (Culkin and Stone) have a rude exchange that's broadcast on a supermarket sound system. Pratt is shocked when his girlfriend (Faris) asks him to "poop" on her, and agrees because he loves her. Parents (Watts and Schreiber) homeschool their teen son (White) with the goal of showing him how excruciating life will be. Two pals (Scott and Knoxville) kidnap a leprechaun (Butler) who's reluctant to give them his gold. And a 1950s basketball coach (Howard) tries to convince his players that they're winners because they're black.
Others are dating scenarios: Winslet goes on a blind date with a guy (Jackman) who has testicles on his neck; Berry and Merchant play an increasingly deranged game of Truth or Dare in a Mexican restaurant; a pre-teen (Bennett) can't cope when his young date (Moretz) has her first period; Batman (Sudeikis) messes up Robin's (Long) attempt at speed-dating; Banks struggles to cope with her new boyfriend's (Duhamel) obsessive cartoon cat. There are also a few random advert spoofs, including one for the naked-woman shaped iBabe, which leads to trouble for the company CEO (Gere).

Arnold Schwarzenegger makes his long awaited return as a leading man in The Last Stand, proving he is a man of his word. He did say he'd be back.
The former Governor of California hasn't appeared in a starring role since 2003's 'Terminator' sequel Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, in which he resurrected his most famous role and not for the last time either. The 65-year-old actor may have had a considerable amount of time out on the sidelines of Hollywood, but that doesn't mean his lost an ounce of his famous Austrian charm that has endeared him to audiences over the decades.
Whilst this film may be called The Last Stand, this is by no means Arnie's last stand in the movies and his most recent foray in front of the camera has shown us that Hollywood have missed their go-to beefcake over the past decade, because no one can do what Arnold does. With Forest Whitaker and Johnny Knoxville helping out, as well as some lesser known actors and actresses (Luis Guzman, Jaimie Alexander, Rodrigo Santoro and Zach Gilford), the film is very much Arnold's show. Had Schwarzenegger not taken up the staring role then it is pretty reasonable to assume that this would be quite an unrespectable release, probably shipping straight to DVD - Arnold does this kind of stuff with movies though so its to be expected.

If you were hoping for a romantic comedy with a harmless storyline, romance and inoffensive jokes, the here's a warning: read no further. 'Movie 43' is one of the most cringe-worthy and uncensored taboo-filled flicks to be released in the history of comedy. Here you will see several interlinked stories with characters' lives surrounding unusual proposals, interrupting blind kids' parties, bad parenting, teenage menstruation, a confused and slightly racist basketball coach, innovative business ideas and the kidnapping of a violent leprechaun. Once you see this movie it is unlikely you will find a subject that offends you ever again.
With twelve different comedy genius directors including Peter Farrelly ('Dumb & Dumber', 'There's Something About Mary', 'Shallow Hal'), Steve Carr ('Daddy Day Care', 'Dr Dolittle 2'), Steven Brill ('Little Nicky') and Brett Ratner ('Rush Hour') to name but a few and eight different writers, this jaw-droppingly crude and often obscene movie features a diverse star-studded cast, both British and American, who have banded together to shock you in the most hilarious ways you can think of. Whatever kind of comedy you're into, 'Movie 43' probably has something in it for everyone and it is set to hit the big screen on February 1st 2012.
Directed by : Elizabeth Banks, Steven Brill, Steve Carr, Rusty Cundieff, James Duffy, Griffin Dunne, Peter Farrelly, Patrik Forsberg, James Gunn, Bob Odenkirk, Brett Ratner, Jonathan van Tulleken

You know you're in trouble when a madcap comedy is unable to even raise a smile. And it's worse when it strains to include a sentimentally emotional subplot without grounding anything in believable characters or situations. All that's left is a lot of corny toilet humour and eye-rollingly limp schmaltz. Even a decent cast can't rescue this one.
It all happens on one Halloween night in Ohio, when brainy 18-year-old Wren (Justice) and her oversexed pal April (Levy) plan to attend the party of the year hosted by the school hottie. But Wren's mother (Handler) runs off to her own party, leaving Wren in charge of her mischievous 8-year-old brother Albert (Nicoll), who hasn't spoken a word since their father died a year earlier. And Albert quickly ditches Wren, running off for an adventure with a lovelorn convenience store employee (Middleditch). To find him, Wren gets help from the nerdy Roosevelt (Mann), who has a crush on her.
The premise has potential, blending Adventures in Babysitting and Home Alone along with a bit of emotional subtext. But the screenwriters never make anything of it, instead indulging in startlingly unfunny slapstick, jokes about paedophilia and a sappy streak of half-baked sentiment. All of which means that the filmmakers waste their solid cast at every turn. Justice and Levy make an enjoyable if unlikely duo, while Nicholl is full of unpredictable energy. But the filmmakers manage to subdue the usually irrepressible Handler in a badly underdeveloped role that's still the most interesting thing in the film.

Mary Katherine is a regular teenage girl who somehow mysteriously appears in an enchantingly beautiful forest full of talking slugs and miniature soldiers. In this strange new world, a war is waging between the forces of good and those who do everything within their power to try to defend nature, and the forces of evil; those who are responsible for its destruction. Wishing she'd dreamt it all at first, Mary eventually joins a team of weird but friendly characters to help protect this world as well as her own which is also, consequentially, under threat.

Ray Owens is a police sheriff whose major crime fighting days are all but over when he swaps his job in the LAPD combating drug crimes for the much less strenuous post in the quite town of Sommerton Junction on the Mexican border, after a botched drugs operation left him feeling defeated when his friend and colleague ended up crippled. His comfort in his new post is challenged all too soon when the most formidable drug tycoon in the western world, Gabriel Cortez, slips from the clutches of the FBI. Cortez and his ruthless army head towards the Mexican border in Sommerton Junction at 250 miles per hour in a deadly modified Corvette ZR1 with a hostage, mercilessly shooting at the police officers attempting to arrest them and easily sweeping police cars out of their way. They are pursued by the entire law enforcement of America led by Agent John Bannister, though Owens is unwilling to bring his team into the fight at first, feeling not the officer he used to be. His reluctance becomes irrelevant anyway when he is told to take a backseat due to the lack of experience of his team; however Owens soon changes his mind and bands his modest taskforce together to forcibly take on the fierce drug gang themselves.

Popular high school chicks Wren and April can't believe their luck when they are invited to long-haired heartthrob Aaron Riley's much anticipated Halloween party. It appears Wren's only problem is to work out what her costume's going to be; that is until she's about to leave the house and her mother drops the bombshell that she's to babysit for her eccentric younger brother Albert while he goes Trick-or-Treating dressed as Spider Man. As if things weren't bad enough, while Wren and April are moping about missing the party, Albert disappears on his own. Anxious that her mother will find out she's been neglecting her responsibilities, Wren and April set out on a frantic search for Albert; who is being used an accessory by a man who has set out to avenge a broken heart; whilst swindling 'nerds' and suffering public humiliation along the way.

Despite making some of the most uncompromising music of the last 30 years, Motorhead for some strange reason, cross all boundaries. This is undoubtedly down to the enduring appeal of Lemmy - a man who's stuck to his guns and done things on his own terms to the point where he has just ended up being accepted.
Which gives credence to the fact that If you spend long enough doing something and which such conviction, people will eventually come round to your way of thinking. As a rock 'n' roll icon his influence has touched almost everyone who is anyone and the most surprising thing of all about this documentary is the sheer breadth of people who have fallen under his influence. The usual rock crowd is to be expected. Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, Dee Snider (Twisted Sister), Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters, Nirvana), Metallica etc but its appearances of others such as Jarvis Cocker, Peter Hook (Joy Division), Mick Jones (The Clash), Marky Ramone (The Ramones) and Billy Bob Thornton that most surprise.

Now, I know I'm not the only one seeing Hazzard because of Simpson, and quite frankly, she's the film's biggest draw. This is her Crossroads. But let me caution that while you'll come to see Simpson, it's really the zoom-zoom of that little orange 1969 Dodge Charger that will make you stay. When the film is all said and done, I'm guessing that you'll leave the theater wondering what all the fuss over Simpson was about to begin with.

While filming 'The Dukes of Hazzard', Johnny Knoxville and Jessica Simpson may have had a romantic interaction, according to a lie-detector test Knoxville took.
Johnny Knoxville has been accused of engaging in a relationship with Jessica Simpson, when the 'Jackass' star took a live lie-detector test while on-air for a radio interview on 3rd August 2005. Despite both the Simpson and Knoxville being married to other people, it has been rumoured for a long time that they had a relationship during filming for 'The Dukes of Hazzard'.

Knoxville was amazed by his arrival on Howard Stern's radio interview, when he was asked to take a lie detector test, with questions suddenly including whether or not he had sex with Simpson, before being asked if they had ever kissed, and finally if he had ever thought about her while he was "pleasuring himself".
