VVS Films + Mr. Will want you to get you dirty this New Year! This is your chance to see naughty and hilarious DIRTY GRANDPA first on Wednesday, January 20, 2016 in Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary and Winnipeg!
Right before his wedding, straight-laced Jason Kelly (Zac Efron) is coerced into driving his foul-mouthed and perverted grandfather Dick (Robert De Niro), a former Army general, to Florida for spring break.
Dick believes his grandson is about to marry the wrong woman and when some young women hit on them, he tries to get Jason to loosen up. Jason, who is studying law and has a bright future in front of him, is finally convinced to attend a party with Dick, where he proceeds to get high and naked, while Dick sleeps with every hot young thing in sight.
There Robert De Niro goes again, winnning our hearts with another against-the-senior-grain type role. We loved him so much in last month’s The Intern and are happy to see he’s still a big draw to the movies for fans. Check-out the above still, brand new from the upcoming road trip comedy, DIRTY GRANDPA in which he stars alongside Zac Efron. The Film takes place a few days before Jason‘s (Efron) wedding and both he and Grandpa Dick head on a trek to a Boca Raton retirement community. The two get into lots of antics with Jason being the straight-laced one of the two.
BORAT Co-Writer Dan Mazur directs the comedy which also stars Aubrey Plaza, Jason Mantzoukas, Danny Glover, Adam Pally and Dermot Mulroney.
