Incompetence combined with the occasional burst of disreputable laughter makes Dirty Grandpa oddly lively for a movie that's largely terrible.
July 23, 2016
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.

This is a movie that desperately wants to be a raunchy, politically incorrect, gross-out comedy. It gets as far as desperate.

Its horrible message: the old are only interesting when they're capable of aping the young.

Steer away from Dirty Grandpa, just as you would sidestep a dog turd on the pavement.
January 30, 2016
Plays like one of those dire mainstream films that - thanks to a few extreme moments - Quentin Tarantino periodically reclaims in his best-of-the-year list.
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.
January 28, 2016
Be ashamed, Robert De Niro, be deeply ashamed of every scene of Dirty Grandpa, a sleazy comedy spurting unfunny jokes from a lost time.
January 28, 2016
There are a few moments of hilarity, but most of the film seems merely grotesque. It's baffling as to what draws De Niro to such material when he should be playing Willy Loman or King Lear.
January 28, 2016
A sad and, in the end, utterly sappy affair that recycles the same checklist of tropes that lulls audiences into thinking they are watching an edgy comedy.
January 28, 2016
This grossout comedy takes De Niro fans into a new emotional phase that I can only call "post-despair". We are past being astonished and horrified.
January 28, 2016
The ugliest film in recent memory - in every sense of the word - we can only hope it meets the fate it deserves.
January 28, 2016
There's something dated about the script, graspingly keen to be edgy but often wearyingly outmoded - are we honestly still treating gay euphemisms as a bottomless well of hilarity?
January 28, 2016
This is the most engaged De Niro performance in at least five years: his dialogue is both apocalyptically unfunny and clearly enunciated, which somehow makes it all the more galling.
January 25, 2016
Tinged with the sadness of watching a beloved elderly relative making a bloody old fool of himself.
January 23, 2016
"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
You gotta give De Niro a hand (and a maybe a tissue) for the way he dives right into this role. He chews through the icky dialogue and even lends the character some warmth in the process. The movie doesn't deserve it.
January 22, 2016
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.
January 22, 2016
If Dirty Grandpa does anything, it should be to make you stop weeping for De Niro's lost greatness. He brought this upon himself.
