Paramount has released the following first clip from Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa, which slid into the October 25 release slot only a short time ago, bumping Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones to January 3.

Here's the synopsis for the film:

86 year-old Irving Zisman is on a journey across America with the most unlikely companions, his 8 year-old Grandson Billy in Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa. This October, the signature Jackass character Irving Zisman (Johnny Knoxville) and Billy (Jackson Nicoll) will take movie audiences along for the most insane hidden camera road trip ever captured on camera.

Along the way Irving will introduce the young and impressionable Billy to people, places and situations that give new meaning to the term child-rearing. The duo will encounter male strippers, disgruntled child beauty pageant contestants (and their equally disgruntled mothers), funeral home mourners, biker bar patrons and a whole lot of unsuspecting citizens.
Real people in unreal situations, making for one really messed up comedy.

I can't tell if this will be just a series of skits just as the previous Jackass films were or if they will try and tell a narrative Borat style. My guess is the former and I assume the majority of the skits will go as follows.

Check out the clip below.

      From those that you listed, I have seen The Way, Way Back, The Butler and Rush. I'll give you a brief rundown:

      The Way, Way Back- Just meh. It's fine but it's nothing spectacular. C+

      The Butler- Very good, but has absolutely no idea what to do with its lead character. B+

      Rush- The best movie of the year so far, Rush is fast, funny, exciting, and well made. A+
