Watch Trailer of DIRTY GRANDPA (2016)
This is Jason. He's a little worried about his grandpa.
They're hitting the road. And everything on it.
Lose your way. Find your manhood.
Plot Summary
Not even a week before he's due to wed his fiancée Meredith (Julianne Hough), Jason Kelly (Zac Efron) travels to Florida with grandfather, Richard "Dick" Kelly (Robert De Niro), an ex-Army General, to meet up with an old army buddy. Upon arriving there, Jason realises that his pervert grandpa's plan is to get drunk, get high and get laid over spring break.
The film's theatrical poster shows Robert De Niro lifting Zac Efron on his back without any help. Efron confirmed that Nero didn't take any help while promoting the film on Instagram.

Before Robert De Niro came on board, Jeff Bridges and Michael Douglas were considered for the role of Richard "Dick" Kelly.

This is the second time Zac Efron has played a character named Jason after That Awkward Moment (2014).

Dirty Grandpa luxuriates in filth, but seldom, if ever, raises so much as a smile. Nobody phones it in, but that only makes for more good thrown after bad.

A couple of weeks ago I had the strangest dream. I dreamed that this movie, “Dirty Grandpa,” was the talk of the nation. Not because the Robert De Niro/Zac Efron/Aubrey Plaza raunch comedy was particularly good, but because, apparently—I didn’t see any of the movie in my dream, just had conversations with people about it—it didn’t do that thing that studio-produced-raunch comedies do, which is take things so far and no further.

AV Club|Review by Jesse Hassenger
The would-be comic conceit of a foul-mouthed old person is, at this point, only slightly younger than the ability to depict foul-mouthed characters in cinema. The fact that anyone would consider this sort of character a shocking yet hilarious delight is almost inherently anti-comedic; it’s hard to laugh from inside the deep depression caused by smug faux-edginess.

This should have been made clear by the film’s title and, if you bothered to watch them, the marketing materials, but Dan Mazer’s Dirty Grandpa is relentlessly vulgar, proudly offensive, stupefyingly idiotic and completely embarrassing for everyone involved.

DIRTY GRANDPA is certainly dirty. It’s crude and rude, and that would’ve been great if it had offered a few laughs. It doesn’t. At all. Efron and De Niro aren’t bad necessarily, but they have nothing to work with.
