Dirty Grandpa Reviews

February 4, 2016
This is a movie that desperately wants to be a raunchy, politically incorrect, gross-out comedy. It gets as far as desperate.
January 29, 2016
Nothing is rendered in a particularly funny or novel way - it's just crude, shocking statements. Therefore, the film isn't actually offensive because it's trying so hard to be and failing miserably.

Tinged with the sadness of watching a beloved elderly relative making a bloody old fool of himself.

"Dirty Grandpa" is like watching a friend's mediocre improv troupe do an extended spring-break sketch. And your friend just happens to be Robert De Niro.
January 23, 2016
Crude in nearly every sense of the word, "Dirty Grandpa" is a nasty-humored, poorly made and desperately unfunny film.
January 22, 2016
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.

It will make you feel bad for yourself, and anyone else who sees it, and anyone else who has to live in the world where it exists as a physical document.

If Dirty Grandpa does anything, it should be to make you stop weeping for De Niro's lost greatness. He brought this upon himself.

Dirty Grandpa feels like spending 100-plus minutes with a scatalogical toddler, proudly showing you what he made in his diaper. Don't look if you don't have to.

"Dirty Grandpa" gets ugly-drunk on its title character's preening smugness: Grandpa Dick is presented as The World's Most Interesting Man, a cigar-chomping hybrid of Sinatra and Statham, but simply comes across as TWMIM's scumbag brother.

I began giggling with a kind of metaphysical embarrassment for everyone involved in the enterprise, and, eventually, for all of humanity itself.

Dirty Grandpa does have one distinction. It makes De Niro's previous comedy low point Meet the Fockers look good by comparison.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
January 22, 2016
There's little chemistry between a sadly unfunny Efron and a sleepwalking De Niro, and both Jason's awakening and Dick's plotting feel forced.

It can be definitively stated that Dirty Grandpa is utterly unfunny.
January 22, 2016
Robert De Niro hits rock-bottom opposite Zac Efron in this atrocious excuse for a comedy.
January 22, 2016
It's shocking without being truly outrageous, dirty without ever really crashing taboos. And for a road-trip comedy, it pretty much stays in the slow lane. With its blinker on.
