Can grown-up Zac Efron lead a movie on his own? The jury is still out. He scored a big hit last year with “Neighbors” alongside Seth Rogen, but nobody cared about his aspiring DJ drama “We Are Your Friends,” which dropped the needle in August. So the actor is back in raunchy comedy mode, and is bringing along Robert De Niro who once again shows there’s no bar too low for his legacy to limbo under.
Directed by Dan Mazer (“I Give It A Year“), this a road trip movie about an uptight young man who is about to get married, who has drive his freewheeling Grandpa to Spring Break. And thus, the comedy is anchored on De Niro being the unlikely party animal, and Efron furrowing his brow and looking on with consternation. We’ll see what the mileage on that premise is.
Co-starring Julianne Hough, Aubrey Plaza, Dermot Mulroney, Zoey Deutch, Jason Mantzoukas, Adam Pally, and Henry Zebrowski, “Dirty Grandpa” opens on January 22, 2016.
