Storyline

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 and form the bond they never had.

Dirty grandpa is not some French love story, nor is it pretending to be

I usually don't feel compelled writing a review, but when reading most reviews already posted I needed to add the following: People complained about the movie being raunchy and containing too much dirty jokes, what else did you expect.. it literally has the word "dirty" in the title. It is not some French romantic love story, nor is it pretending to be. It is a funny road trip story filled with a lot of "fucks" and childish (hilarious) jokes which if you like these kind of movies will definitely keep you entertained until the end. And, ultimately it even has a small underlying message to teach you. If you are looking for something more serious, then please don't go and then complain after, maybe try checking out something else.

Its been years since i have laughed this much

Congratulations to all the ones making this movie. It was absolutely a blast, and I laughed from start to finish. Its a new take on a old road trip/trapped in a relationship plot that works really well with the actors. Funny, raw and a bit childish humor that Robert takes to the next level. The other cast was also pretty good, from the guy who sells beach towels for 50 dollars, sunscreen for 10 dollars and METH to the controlling soon too be wife. (See the movie, and you will get the line) Every critic in the media is going to give this 1s and 2s. And that alone is a reason for us "regular joes" to realize this is an instant hit. I hope to see Robert and Zac doing more work in the future. As I said before. This was the funniest movie in a long time.

not that bad, actually, given the expectations

This movie isn't actually that bad; it certainly doesn't deserve the endless line of 1-star reviews. I went to see it with very, very low expectations, after reading a negative review of it, and ended up enjoying quite a bit of it. Even from the trailer you can tell this is a silly, childish comedy with plenty of toilet and/or sexual humor. I don't know what people came to expect from it - this certainly doesn't attempt to be anything else besides that. Maybe many people aren't used to seeing De Niro in such a role, but hey, he's done other silly comedies already. Not all the jokes are that great, but it was good fun nevertheless. So, definitely childish, definitely silly, but also definitely funny in my book. I even ended up feeling for De Niro's character - hey, it's his last stand after all. So, if you don't expect much and aren't easily offended by jokes that sometimes are a bit too silly / gross /etc, you might even enjoy this!

Did everyone here watch the same movie as me?

The wife and I absolutely loved this movie and can't wait for it to come out on bluray! Sure it has a crude sense of humor in it, but nowadays that is pretty common.Sure it is not Deniro's type of movie that he normally does, but I think he did a great job in playing his part. All my friends that went to see this absolutely loved the movie as well. Funny to me from the beginning to the end. Maybe a lot of the older crowd went to see this and found it too offensive or something? Not sure? I mean, it is not a movie that you want to watch with your kids, but I highly recommend this one if you are not easily offended and have a sense of humor like I do! Come on people! One star? Really? This movie was great!

Know what you're getting into and you can have fun with Dirty Grandpa.

Once the credits started rolling for Dirty Grandpa, the only thing I could say was, "Oh my god." It was shocking. From beginning to end the movie is shock humor, gross-out humor, crass, offensive, childish and stupid. But you know what? I laughed a lot. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't entertained throughout most of this movie. Sure, it follows a lot of road trip movie tropes and the perfunctory fight/make-up conflict near the end, but one thing about Dirty Grandpa is that it's consistent. Dirty joke after dirty joke; some of them hit, some of them miss, but they don't stop. Some of these things I never thought I'd hear come out of Robert De Niro's mouth, but the fact that it's him saying it makes it all the more funny. People will say this is a slap in the face to his legacy, but it really isn't. The Family was. Little Fockers was. This movie knows what it is - a lewd, politically incorrect road trip comedy, and it succeeds in that regard. What surprised me most about Dirty Grandpa is the chemistry between Zac Efron and Robert De Niro. They have a great comedic rapport that actually feels authentic, which helps the more insane scenes retain some semblance of realism (as thin as it may be). The rest of the cast is enjoyable too, especially Aubrey Plaza as the overtly slutty college girl who continuously surprised me with every grotesque statement uttered from her mouth. Oddly enough, De Niro feels right at home here. It's as if his character from Meet the Parents went off the deep end and decided to go on a spring break road trip with Zac Efron. Seriously, his character is ex-special forces and everything. Efron also proves once again that he's a comedic force to be reckoned with playing the straight corporate man put in awkward social situations. I don't know what people were expecting from Dirty Grandpa. Look at the title, look at the trailers. Are you really surprised? It was marketed as a gross-out comedy from day one, and guess what? It's gross. It's vile; it's degrading; it's shockingly inappropriate. Is it a good movie? Not a chance in hell. But the goal of a comedy is to make the viewer laugh, and Dirty Grandpa made me laugh. Hard. Now, if you don't like offensive humor, you should stay the hell away from this. Just know what you're getting into before seeing Dirty Grandpa and you can definitely have some fun watching it.
