A fake 86-year-old grandfather (Johnny Knoxville) and his grandson (Jackson Nicoll) travel across America and hidden-camera prank unsuspecting bystanders in the greatest geezersploitation comedy since Last Vegas. (Paramount)

Argento’s Dracula
Dario Argento directs a bloody/sexy 3-D version of the Drac story, starring Rutger Hauer as vampire hunter Van Helsing and daughter Asia Argento as, just guessing, Odd-Looking Exotic Girl Who’s Usually Naked and Screaming. Ah, family. (IFC)
