Right before his wedding to uptight Meredith (Julianne Hough), Jason (Zac Efron) promises his granddad (Robert De Niro) who has just lost his wife, to drive him to Florida. But it turns out Grandpa is more interested in chasing his youth as well as young ladies. What should have been a short drive turns out to quite an adventure where Jason discovers he never really knew his granddad.
This is one of those movies, where you should just ignore that bad critiques, especially if you are looking for a movie that only strives to make you laugh. And Dirty Grandpa will make you laugh, that is if you are not against a rude sense of humour. De Niro (The Intern, 2015) once again proves his great sense of comedy with one of the greatest, coolest, funniest grandpas ever seen on screen, foul mouthed with a take-no-shit attitude he reminds you of characters like Highway in Heartbreak Ridge (1986) and is pure delight to be in company of during the running time of the movie. Great fun with great characters led by the charismatic duo of Efron (Hairspray, 2007) and De Niro.
For the film’s theatrical poster, Robert De Niro lifted Zac Efron on his back without any help. Efron confirmed it while promoting the film on Instagram.
