First Trailer for 'Dirty Grandpa' Starring Zac Efron & Robert De Niro
"The way I see it - this is our last stand." Lionsgate has debuted the trailer for Dirty Grandpa, about an uptight kid played by Zac Efron who has to drive his lewd, perverted former-Army-general grandfather, played by Robert De Niro, to spring break in Florida. Ohhhh man this is one hell of a raunchy film, and not in a good way. At least they admit that De Niro's character is a "pervert", because damn is he an asshole. The cast includes Julianne Hough, Aubrey Plaza, Dermot Mulroney, Zoey Deutch, Jason Mantzoukas, Adam Pally and Henry Zebrowski. I recommend staying as far away from this film as possible, it's just not worth it.
Here's the first official trailer for Dan Mazer's Dirty Grandpa, originally from BuzzFeed:
Right before his wedding, an uptight guy (Efron) is tricked into driving his grandfather (De Niro), a perverted former Army general, to Florida for spring break. Dirty Grandpa is directed by filmmaker Dan Mazer, of "Da Ali G Show" work and I Give It a Year previously. The screenplay is by newcomer John Phillips (Bad Santa 2). Julianne Hough, Aubrey Plaza, Dermot Mulroney, Zoey Deutch, Jason Mantzoukas, Adam Pally and Henry Zebrowski co-star in this wacky comedy. Lionsgate will be releasing Dan Mazer's Dirty Grandpa in theaters everywhere starting January 22nd, 2016 early next year. Is anyone interested?

This sounds like a ripoff of that awful Johnny Knoxville movie....what ever happened to Bobby DeNiro?

Whatever indeed! He seems to have lost the faculty of being able to be embarrassed. Who'd a thought the DeNiro of Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Deer Hunter, Once Upon A Time In America, etc., would turn out like this when he got older. Well, it's his business and I hope he's happy and content. He is very rich, that's for sure. You couldn't drag me to see him in a movie these days. Never thought I'd say that back in the old days when I first saw him in Mean Streets and Taxi Driver and The Deer Hunter...but there you have it. He sure was something else back then, that's for sure. Cheers!

I agree, but I also feel like they don't make the same types of movies as they used to. I really miss the style of his old school gangster movies like Good Fellas and Casino, or even Donnie Brasco, Carlito's Way, they just don't make these types of movies anymore. All those actors are either making nonsense films for the most part or nothing at all.

What about the last three David O. Russell films?

Damn, you must be young. The poster is actually a ripoff of The Graduate with Dustin Hoffman. Great movie from 1967.

I am young...but yeah. That poster is clearly a spoof of the Graduate...."Are you trying to seduce me, Mrs. Robinson?"

I'm not gonna lie, I love that poster though.

I think De Niro enjoys something about his age. I don't know what it is, but it looks like it's not gonna end ....

Not sure why we should stay away. I thought the preview was pretty funny. So much better (at least IMO) than so much of the other crap that passes for comedy these days, ie., lots of Judd Apatow stuff. Perhaps I'm just old (50). I loved both Neighbors and Bad Grandpa so this looks pretty good to me.

Is De Niro having money problems?
Dhiram on Oct 29, 2015
we should be happy he still wants to work.
