Dirty Grandpa: Crass Comedy Hits The Big Screen

Ah, yes… the movie where Zac Efron’s abs character from “Neighbours” joins the tired lascivious road trip comedy plot. Considering Robert De Niro is one of the greatest actors of his generation, this is a new low with raunchy, offensive scenes slapped all over the cliché plot of road trips going haywire.
