Dirty Grandpa

UK Release Date: 25th January 2016

Right before his wedding, an uptight guy is tricked into driving his grandfather, a perverted former Army Lieutenant-Colonel "Special Forces" to Florida for spring break (

Director: Dan Mazer (I Give It a Year)

Starring: Robert De Niro, Zac Efron, Zoey Deutch, Aubrey Plaza, Dermot Mulroney, Julianne Hough

Dirty Grandpa could possibly be the worst film of the year, and even up for worst film ever seen. This is due to several aspects, the biggest of these and hardest to comprehend is Robert De Niro stooping very low into toilet humour. His distinguished career, which includes Raging Bull, The Godfather: Part II and Heat, is tainted by this monstrosity. Dirty Grandpa is full of jokes about farts, sex, drugs and general stupidity. De Niro's unbearably crass and homophobic. He spends all his time jamming his thumb up his grandson's behind and swooning over young tot Aubrey Plaza, and just a day after laying his wife to rest. 

Maybe I'm getting too old for this kind of humour. All I know is Dirty Grandpa is shamefully racist and misogynistic, and probably without knowing. The black people in this movie are either gangster or homosexual. Hugely insulting. What's even weirder was most people were laughing at the screening I went to. It must be me.
