I stopped expecting greatness from De Niro many moons ago. Why he feels he has to be out there in roles beneath himself is a mystery. But let's face it head on, he shows plenty of exuberance in Dirty Grandpa and it doesn't look like he'll be stopping.
The extent of the plot is literally just Robert De Niro wanting to f*** a college girl (who is of course depicted as an unabashed s***), because after 40 years of being faithful to his recently deceased wife, he feels entitled to some fun...
A burlesque like Dirty Grandpa means to "liberate the oppressed" and does so in a low-comedy way. Ignore the bluenose critics who sharpened their dentures on this movie; ironically, they're the same fools who swallow drivel like The Hunger Games.
Though there are some polite, heartfelt moments about living life to the full, Dirty Grandpa is an arrangement of outrageous lines and sight gags for those who like their comedy crude, if somewhat pointless.
