Jason has to take his grandpa to Florida during spring break, right before his wedding, and he sees a side of his grandpa that he never knew existed. Now Jason has to survive the week with his grandpa and he might even find himself along the way.
Is it just me that is having a hard time seeing Zac Efron as a perfect, hard-working husband with fancy clothes? It just feels wrong, and apparently the filmmakers thought that too because that man took a real character turn. I did however like the change. One character that did not go through that big of a change was the lovely grandpa Dick Kelly, played by Robert De Niro. That man is a legend and his character was so hilarious. This movie was so awkward and so funny and Zac Efron and Robert De Niro were brilliant.
The actual problem I had with this movie was that it felt so wrong with a grandpa hitting on a young girl that could be his grandchild. I do get that it’s suppose to be a funny detail about the movie but it felt so wrong. Kind of made me enjoy the movie less but I did find it to be hilarious sometimes as well. The movie is overall very humorous and eventful. The environment is also beautiful and the cast pretty spot on. I guess the thing that made me give this movie a lower rating was because of some really awkward scenes, but other than that I would say the movie is worth watching (not for children though).
