January is usually a month where studios dump their worst movies of the year. It makes a ton of sense, especially since we’ve already been inundated with critically acclaimed movies which, in turn, braces us for another round of awards season.
The trailer to Dirty Grandpa, which opens January 22, gives me some hope that this movie will actually be funny, and seeing if Robert De Niro and Zac Efron will work as a comedic duo actually has my interests peaked.
The plotline centers on Jason Kelly (Efron) a dude who’s being groomed to be the partner in a law firm. One week away from marrying his boss’ all too controlling daughter (Julianne Hough), Jason must drive his grandfather Dick (De Niro) to Daytona for spring break. Aubrey Plaza and Dermot Mulroney also star in the movie, which was directed by Dan Mazar (I Give It A Year).
Are you excited for Dirty Grandpa, and do Efron and De Niro make for a memorable pairing (nothing beats Charles Grodin and Robert De Niro in Midnight Run, but Dirty Grandpa looks promising)? Feel free to comment below!
