Dirty Grandpa is a raunchy comedy starring Zac Efron, Robert De Niro, and Aubrey Plaza. De Niro plays Dick Kelly, an elderly man who has just lost his wife to cancer. Efron plays the straight laced, soon to be married grandson Jason who is asked to spend some quality time with the man he used to be close to as a kid but hasn't spent much time with for several years. Their trip takes a few unexpected turns and the pair end up surrounded by spring break parties where anything can and will happen.

Silver Linings Playbook - Movie Review


I've been waiting for both Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence to take on roles that would really allow them to show off their acting abilities since, up until now, we've mainly seen them in big time blockbuster movies playing the type of characters that don't really allow actors to go all in with their performances. While they have both done solid work to this point, I could always tell there was something more they both could give if they had the right characters to play. Silver Linings Playbook just happens to throw them both together into a story that is as oddly original as it is charmingly entertaining.
