Watch: Zac Efron And Robert De Niro Go Wild In New Trailer For 'Dirty Grandpa'

When the time comes to look back on the cinematic legacy of Robert De Niro, it’s probably safe to say that “Dirty Grandpa” won’t be a major focus of reflection. To be fair, it does find the actor doing something he’s never done before, it’s just a shame that thing happens to be an otherwise paint by numbers raunchy comedy.

Co-starring Zac Efron, Aubrey Plaza, Zoey Deutch, Julianne Hough, Jason Mantzoukas and Adam Pally, the story follows a hen-pecked young man who is taught to live a little by his outrageous grandfather, when they swing by Daytona for Spring Break, during a road trip. And that’s about it, with the jokes mostly resting on De Niro being old and sleazy.

“Dirty Grandpa” opens on January 22nd.
