How funny is "Bad Grandpa'?
Take it from the ticket-seller at the multiplex: "The girl at the concession counter had to use her inhaler three times."
Don't take it from me.
Then again, two movie-goers walked out during the first 30 minutes at a recent matinee of "Bad Grandpa" at that same multiplex.

Q. My six-year-old grandson insists that I smell like an old person. Do you have any idea what he's talking about?

After five nights, the researchers put the pads in jars. Each jar contained cut-up...
