The daughter of decrepit pensioner Irving Zisman once again got on violation of the law and just about will go to prison. On hands the old man still has eight-year grandson Billey whom it is necessary to forward to daddy, too to very asotsialny type. To crown it all Irving just lost the spouse and still did not solve how to send the dead in a final journey. And go to travel about across America the somewhat eccentric grandfather, the juvenile blockhead grandson and the corpse wrapped in a sheet …
The Russian film distributors bashfully hid a part of the name of the film, that part which over the ocean, on the contrary, can be put with pride into the forefront: «Odd fellows represent». Actually, on it any reviews can be turned off for that simple reason that "Odd fellows" – a brand, comparable with names of the most important blokbasterny directors and producers, it is comprehensive explaining everything that for you waits on the screen.
However, we will be fair to new "eccentricity" – a gang of little fools-sadomazokhistov from the MTV channel made attempt to escape of a habitual circle of incoherent gags of different degree of decency and a chlenovreditelstvo. «The intolerable grandfather», first, has an any plot, and secondly, the company understood that is simple so to them the people needed to be fooled, too physiognomies of main "odd fellows" are recognizable, and therefore went on cunning with a make-up.
Yes, behind gray-haired moustaches, a bald head, baggy trousers and an old man blazer Johnny Noksvil disappears. We hurry to calm admirers – дурковать, to pull faces and firmenno without restraint to stare it to it at all does not disturb, as does not prevent senile прикид to butt in usual adventures for "Odd fellows".
Initially the film reflected as the next, fourth full-length picture from the franchize "Odd fellows" where Irving Zisman was given only an episode, but the hero so was pleasant to founders that to it gave all screen time
Actually, with "Odd fellows" of "Grandfather" directly connects humour level – be ready (though it is difficult to present to itself that the people knowing a surname Knoxville, can not represent, than this actor is engaged) to that his character puts the personal belongings in the machine gun from soda, arranges competitions on noisy start-up of gases in cafeteria, becomes hollow on a man’s striptease with the view of this art and accepts unequal battle with the huge fish allocated with remarkable man’s advantages. Did not manage and without firm tricks of "Odd fellows", what quite often come to an end with traumas, – the character of Knoxville "blows up" on a children’s attraction, tests on itself a folding bed, goes for a drive on the store cart and runs on the car into indexes and advertizing figures.
In the American hire the picture collected 100 million dollars at the budget in 15 million. «The intolerable grandfather» during a starting weekend in the USA took the first place boxing office, having displaced from it Alphonso Cuaron’s "Gravitation"
But not only to these Knoxville in the new film is occupied. Somewhat Irving it is possible to consider «The intolerable grandfather» as Borat and Bruno Sascha Barona Cohen’s "follower". Its task in the film consists not so much in putting mutilations to itself or to test the next idiotic painful attraction, how many in achieving from nothing suspecting public and interlocutors of sincere nezamutnenny reaction that «something went not so». It is possible almost always, and it deduces a picture into absolutely other orbit, rather than previous "Chudakovatosti". It becomes most interesting in the film supervision over reaction of average Americans on the things which are not entering in their usual vital way. Some scenes turned out really fantastic – reaction of workers of mail to a "live" parcel, an embarrassment on wedding, fight in baykersky club. It is possible to speak as much as necessary about what Americans "stupid", but in some situations of their first reaction it is possible to envy.
Certainly, the film would not turn out, there is no at Johnny Noksvila such talented screen partner – Jackson Nikoll at cinema not the beginner, but to his endurance, ability to keep in a shot, work with unprepared "partners" in scenes should learn not only to children actors of domestic cinema, but also many adults. With such child any old man will not be gone, well or at least will not be bored to death. One only a scene with a children’s beauty contest costs thousands and thousand releases of "Jumble".
