I see as many films as possible to share my thoughts everyone. We all love movies, but sometimes we would like to know a few opinions first.

"Dirty Grandpa" boasts one great thing, and one great thing only. The chemistry between Robert DeNiro and Zac Efron is much better than I was expecting it to be, and I really bought into their troubled relationship which each other. On the verge of marriage, Jason Kelly (Efron) and his Grandfather set out on a trip to Florida once his wife passes away. At it's core, this film is here to explore these characters emotionally as the audience watches them take their wacky trip. Self discovery and choosing what is right and wrong in life is what the message is here, and whether or not I bought into that is another story. I admired the attempt at something heartfelt, but when all of your humour is raunchy dialogue and visuals, it is hard to take a moment to enjoy the nice moments. "Dirty Grandpa" tries way too hard to impress it's target audience, and becomes a sloppily made comedy that really is not all that funny. In the end, I admired the attempt, but the execution was a little much for my taste. It really is a shame, because I love this cast, but they were not given enough to do. I did not hate sitting in the theatre watching this, but was it really worth the time? Sadly no.
