      1. Hey 🙂 I totally agree with Dirty Grandpa in the last place as this movie is really bad. (although it is with Zac Efron… at first I really liked him, but his latest movies are always a bit similar and playing only with that bad Boy Image. )

        1. Zac Efron almost redeems the film for me. Sadly, he just plays another feckless human being who falls victim to the antics of a delusional loved one.
          Robert De Niro deserves to be put into a career straitjacket unless a passing project involves either David O. Russell or Martin Scorsese.
