Dirty Grandpa


Robert De Niro, Zac Efron, Aubrey Plaza and Zoey Deutch star in director Dan Mazer’s brash road-trip comedy. When his wife dies after a 10-year fight against cancer, Dick Kelly (De Niro) announces his attention to take a nostalgic two-day trip to Florida to remember the times they spent there in spring. He can no longer drive, so he asks his corporate lawyer grandson Jason (Efron) to take him. But Jason is supposed to be attending his wedding rehearsals, so his controlling fiancée Meredith (Julianne Hough) is furious when he agrees. However, Dick isn’t being honest with Jason: the real reason for the trip is to give Dick the opportunity for sexual encounters and also to dissuade Jason from marrying Meredith. So off they go to Boca Raton. Along the way, Jason bumps into his old classmate Shadia (Deutch), gets drunk and is arrested for theft and drugs. Meanwhile, Dick gets lucky when he hits on earthy beauty Lenore (Plaza), Shadia’s best friend.
