Cine Beaverhausen: Robert De Niro Is Dirty Grandpa
While the humor is sophomoric and politically incorrect, I got a few laughs out of this lightweight endeavor.
While hardly a comedy classic, it's certainly entertaining enough if you're in the mood for this sort of thing. Still at theaters, it goes great with popcorn and a Pepsi, and has been well received at the box-office, though critically drubbed.
It's a road movie and Zac Efron co-stars, looking mighty fine and in fine shape as a comic sidekick, too. Eye candy always helps although Efron is not just a pretty boy but a fine actor worthy of his co-star.
Some have said De Niro is slumming it in this, but I think he's showing off his versatility as a mature actor. How many featured roles are there for a man of his age? Definitely geared to a younger generation and to the frat boy crowd, Dirty Grandpa is worth some chuckles and a few snickers as well. You could find a worse way to spend your idle time.
