MOVIE REVIEW: Dirty Grandpa’s full of crude moments

ROBERT De Niro and Zac Efron bring back their witty charisma in Dirty Grandpa.

When Jason's (Zac Efron) grandmother passes away and leaves behind Grandpa Dick Kelly (Robert De Niro), everyone mourns the tragic family loss.

Well, everyone except Grandpa.

A week before Jason's extreme wedding, he feels guilty and takes his grandfather on a trip to see his former army friend, when Grandpa actually has other plans in mind.

It's not a trip of building trains and playing board games, like Jason thinks it is.

Grandpa wants to fulfil his wife's last wish to him and 'live his life to the full', and that isn't playing golf and bingo till the end of his time.

He is dirty and he is Grandpa, and no one is getting in the way of his final thrive.

The adventures they have on their trip are beyond imaginable, full of hilarious, crude, and laugh out loud funny dry humour.

The movie itself contained no real genuine substance of a storyline, but the main purpose to make you laugh was sure a winner.

Don't be fooled, Dirty Grandpa isn't a movie for everyone. If you aren't the type to like a bit of crude humour, perhaps this one isn't for you.

If you had a good laugh watching That Awkward Moment, Meet the Fockers or The Heartbreak Kid, you'll enjoy watching Dirty Grandpa.
