DIRTY GRANDPA ★★

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | FILM - DC

Di­rected by Dan Mazer. Star­ring Robert De Niro, Zac Efron, Ju­lianne Hough, Danny Glover

Efron plays a young lawyer ten­ta­tively look­ing for­ward to mar­ry­ing an ar­che­typal Bridezilla. A week be­fore the “re­hearsal brunch”, he at­tends his grand­mother’s fu­neral and is per­suaded to drive her wid­ower (De Niro) to Florida for one last fling. He turns out to be a party- hearty ma­niac. The film is ut­terly ter­ri­ble, but it has a weird­ness about it that sets the com­edy aside from that in most re­cent De Niro catas­tro­phes. 18 cert, gen re­lease, 102 min
