Madness is perhaps the most family-friendly way to describe the pervasive college basketball spirit that takes over office environments in March. I can think of a few other choice synonyms, but I'm generally the singularity in these instances and an infinitely dense one at that. But if you can't beat 'em, join 'em, right? So here's a bit of madness that took place during the month of March in the fair city of Raleigh, North Carolina. The idea was to show a tender moment of bonding between Irving Zisman and his grandson Billy Muskie (M-U-S-K-I-E), but what resulted was one of the more surprising scenes for audiences. Not only because it was one of the few clips not given away in the theatrical promo trailers but by this time in the flick most were nestling into the genuine relationship developing between the two. However, just as life turns on a dime, so does comedy, and here the timing was impeccable for an old school, in your face, get that shit outta here rejection.
Big tent? En see double aye? If everyone around is speaking a language you don't understand, seek solace and find comfort in the Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa unrated Blu-ray/DVD/Digital HD combo-pack.
