Dirty Grandpa

PLOT:

Jason Kelly [Zac Efron] is one week away from marrying his boss’s uber-controlling daughter, putting him on the fast track for a partnership at the law firm. However, when the straight-laced Jason is tricked into driving his foul-mouthed grandfather, Dick [Robert De Niro], to Daytona for spring break, his pending nuptials are suddenly in jeopardy. Between riotous frat parties, bar fights, and an epic night of karaoke, Dick is on a quest to live his life to the fullest and bring Jason along for the ride. Ultimately, on the wildest journey of their lives, “dirty” Grandpa and his uptight grandson discover they can learn from one another

What people are saying:

“The 1980’s called. They want their plot line back. That is the level of humor you will find in this comedy. Great cast, but what were they thinking? Surely at some point during principal photography Rober DeNiro pulled Dan Mazer aside and said, “are you sure we can’t afford a rewrite?” 2 stars

“One of the worst movies I’ve ever seen. I thought DiNiro had a lot of money and could choose whatever project he cared to do. I have to believe that none of that is true because this was utter and contemptible trash. Not funny and talking dirty doesn’t make up for a lack of talent. I have to believe that both Efron and DeNiro were broke and needed whatever money was given to them for this trash….” 1 star

“I love Zac Efron, and there is plenty of eye candy in this movie as he constantly shows off his bare chest and abs and butt. Unfortunately for Zac this is a very bad movie. I felt uncomfortable the entire movie. Attempts at humor were just vulgar or mean, and there is conflict everywhere. I would have rated it lower, but my husband actually liked the movie, so maybe there is something there that I didn’t see.” 2 stars

“This movie isn’t as bad as so many say it is. It’s plenty raunchy, but just be prepared for that. As some say, plenty of eye-candy in this movie. ” 3 stars

“While the vulgarity of its humor sure as hell won’t appeal to all tastes but for those who’re okay with it, Dirty Grandpa is a funny film which offers a fresh change of pace for Robert De Niro and has more of Zac Efron departing from his typical Disney-boy style performances following Bad Neighbours. It won’t be a film which everyone is going to have a smile on their faces after they’ve watched it but in IMO, it boasts enough laughs to leave those who enjoy off-colour humour entertained throughout.” 3 1/2 stars
