The fun of sex is the entire point of the raunchy, goofy Dirty Grandpa. You have to be humorless (and sex-averse) to be offended by its deliberate naughtiness as so many critics have demonstrated.

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.

De Niro and Efron become family and deliver a great comedy. [Full review in Spanish]

A film that requires you to embrace dark humor and everything politically incorrect, but in the end, a fun film. [Full review in Spanish]

In the cinematic wasteland of January, Dirty Grandpa is a minor bright spot: perverse and subversive, if not somewhat predictable.

If the simple goal of a comedy is merely to entertain and make you laugh, then Dirty Grandpa more than succeeds.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

There's nothing clever about this deliberately rude and vulgar comedy, but certain audiences will find it absolutely hilarious.

Somehow, Dirty Grandpa is not just another crappy comedy. It's kind of a great comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Crass, often gross and easy to dismiss as rubbish - the film has been critically reviled - Dirty Grandpa nonetheless reveals how De Niro's latter-life love of comedy seems devoted to piecing together a multi-movie portrait of what it is like to be old.

Could have been a mess of crass gags if not for the chemistry of the cast, particularly the two leads who have a rapport that wins you back even when the jokes inevitably stray over the line.

Not everything in this movie is funny, and the set-up takes a bit too long to play out. However, there are some moments that made me laugh, I'll admit.

Though many of these self-consciously crude jokes don't land, those that do are the life of the party. Late-era De Niro forever, y'all.
January 22, 2016
A mix of laughs and guffaws and snorts that neither makes you proud of yourself nor makes you regret giving this fluff a shot.

Dirty Grandpa is a barrel of laughs, just the bottom of the barrel. It is spectacularly perverse, sophomoric, and sexist; with no redeeming social qualities whatsoever. But it's funny, outrageously funny, basking in unrepentantly low brow humor.

The un-ironic title is like a spray-painted graffiti sign warning everyone to stay away from this sewage-swilling clogged cesspit masquerading as a movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

Equal parts bad and baffling, it seems to have been written and directed by alien life forms who read YouTube comment sections for a week and drew these conclusions about human behavior.

No matter how many brief yucks you get out of Plaza's sledge hammer advances or De Niro attempting the kind of fast talking sex talk; you feel desperation.

Pure comedy sewage.
May 17, 2016
A movie so annoying, so ugly, so lead-footed, so misguided, and so blisteringly unfunny it has to be seen to be believed. Please don't see it, though. It's not worth the sacrifice.
Full Review | Original Score: 0/4
May 16, 2016
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
