Piece Of Shit Or Not... Dirty Grandpa

Zac Efron and Not Robert Deniro

Joe's Take -
Engaged to be married Zack Efron (Neighbors), drives his recently widowed Grandfather Robert DeNiro (Little Fockers) down to Florida in a giant labia (pink Mini Cooper) for nostalgia's sake. DeNiro's wild oats come to light on the road trip as they meet up with some horny spring-breakers, led by Aubrey Plaza (Funny People). Efron tries to be good, but the dirty Grandpa gives him some unwanted advice that pushes him into a party boy overall once they reach Daytona. Crack is smoked, bitches are banged, and some sentimental bonding is pushed on the audience. We've seen this movie before. Even as recently as last year's, Tammy. Efron as the straight man will be a nice change of pace for him, but I can't see much past that when he parties and becomes his Neighbors character again. It's cool to see DeNiro in a comedy again, yet I can't help but think that his funniest moments might all be in the trailers (which isn't much). I predict that the typical morality ending will come into play and lower my feelings on this film. But who cares; Aubrey Plaza gets lotion squirted on her chest and rides topless on the old man. Hopefully, that alone will be worth the price of admission. Also, it's directed by the guy who wrote Borat so, there's got to be some hilarity in it, right?
My Prediction- Not a Piece of Shit, but probably close







Mike -
Another year, another road trip movie. Zac Efron plays a corporate lawyer that has to pick up his grandfather after grandma dies and take him to Florida. Zac is marrying some twatty golddigger who thinks that fun is all about Netflix, wine tasting and weekends gardening. In truth, Zac is marrying the boss's daughter and has become miserable. DeNiro sees this and tries to bring back the fun in Zac's life. This movie is all about "living in the moment" and on the surface, it looks good. I'm going to chalk it up to this movie being a Neighbor's type of funny. Not great, but it will have some moments and DeNiro will steal the show.  Final verdict - Not A Piece Of Shit.
