This weekend brings two new flicks to theaters. The first is a crime thriller with a big-name cast, top-notch talent behind the camera, and dreams of Oscars. The other is, well, very different from that.

'Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa'

From the 'Jackass' crew, this thoughtful coming-of-age drama follows 86-year-old Irving Ziskin and his 8-year-old grandson, Billy, as they take a road trip across the country, meeting tons of new people and getting into all sorts of adventures!

Directed by Jeff Tremaine
