|Robert De Niro and Zac Efron|
Hello its been a while and I need to write.
Last weekend I saw Dirty Grandpa staring Robert De Niro and Zac Efron. Directed by Dan Mazer who has directed the Ali G show and produced films such as: Borat and Burno. If you have never heard or seen these films before click the links to their IMDB pages and watch their trailers at your own discretion.
The Dirty Grandpa follows a grandfather, grandson duo on their rediscovery of each other. The film is meant to be one of those stupid funny films. Most of the jokes are about, drugs, sex and sexuality. It tries really hard and I did laugh at times but, over all it wasn't very good.
It's nice to see De Niro in comedy again, though this film doesn't even come close to Meet The Parents or The Intern which I really enjoyed.

The idea for this film isn't horrible, it's not really original but its not bad. The execution of this idea is less than what you would expect. The jokes are very unintelligent and relies heavily on stupid comedy. When I was part of an improv club we were always told to play to the height or our intelligence. Scenes that had smart humour and call backs always had the best type of set ups and long lasting jokes. Sexual jokes can only go so far until the crowd gets bored of them. Maybe the writers of this film should join my old improv club because they could benefit from some creative learning.
The writers even botched the ending to add in a few more sexual gags that would have been better suited in the middle of the film. The ending should have ended near when Dick gives Jason the camera.
I can't talk much about the filmography of the film since its filmed on location. The only thing I can say is that I've been to Daytona beach and it did not look as fun when I was there or as nice. Either things have changed or this is not Daytona beach.
Over all you can go on without watching this film.
