Whew, what a movie. Made me laugh to beat the band.
Dirty Grandpa is a crude, hilarious, and all around crazy comedy starring Robert De Niro and Zac Efron. I love Robert De Niro, but I hate Zac Efron. The plot pretty much follows a grandfather and grandson after the death of a family member, so the grandfather wants to live it up while he still can and spend time with his grandson...in the most batcrap crazy way humanly possible. The more I watched it I realized it was a unique spin on The Hangover, cause there's a wedding involved and they go on this crazy journey and find out stuff for themselves about how they want to live their life. It's not a carbon copy but you can pick up that, oh yeah that was like in The Hangover. Beyond that it's a pretty good film on it's own, although it has some of the most hated cliches in cinema history but I enjoyed the crass situations, and very lewd humor. There's even a character that is by all means, an absolute parody of idiot horny teenagers, and my God is it beautiful. This movie fully warrants the R rating, so tread lightly if movies like The Hangover isn't exactly your cup of tea. It's not a bad movie, I thought it was quite good but it is not for everyone, no way no how. I'm happy I saw it, but I don't think I would buy it. That achievement goes to The Intern, which is just a fantastic movie. All in all, I'd say give it a rent if you are in a very adventurous spirit, but if not you aren't missing the movie rental of the year. Good film, laughed my ass off, let's see what Redbox has for us next.
