Jeremy of The Daily Rotation wrote, "Director Jeff Tremaine and Jackass regular Johnny Knoxville are back with Bad Grandpa, a film that focuses on one wild Jackass character as he sets out on a road trip with his grandson. Bad Grandpa is your typical Jackass production, offering up plenty of fart gags, dirty humor and generally light-natured fun. It’s also the most lopsided Jackass production too. Bad Grandpa is an entertaining film and one that Jackass fans are going to enjoy, but it’s far from their best film yet. For every one joke that lands about three or four follow with flat delivery and that’s what holds back Bad Grandpa from being as memorable as the previous Jackass films."
