Directed by Sir Ridley Scott and starring five of the biggest actors in recent years, McCarthy’s script plays out like someone who has never read a 101 manual on screenwriting before. It’s a daring piece that breaks all the rules we’ve come to expect and should be appreciated as such. The story is a familiar one—drug deal gone bad—but the consequent playing out isn’t so familiar, more a hashing of regret.
Bad Grandpa is to Jackass what Borat is to Ali G. The gag is far less about Irving and his grandson; it’s relishing in how they antagonise and perplex their unwilling support cast. It’s juvenile, it’s ridiculous but I laughed, a lot.

Braveheart’s narration put it best when it said that, “history is written by those who have hanged heroes.” Gaines was sandwiched between history at work and endured history on the home-front and therefore that vice should and could have resulted in a masterpiece. The Butler burned like phosphorus early but fizzled towards a heavy handed conclusion and ‘message’ that lands with the finesse of a sledge hammer.
