The critical consensus

Shockingly awful and utterly charmless, this is a dirty, rotten shame of a film.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 22/01/2016

If the film has (fleeting) moments of shamelessly low-brow, American Pie-style appeal, even this is undone by the lame final act.

**(*)(*)(*)James Mottram, The List, 25/01/2016

The great man’s late career continues to baffle as he plays a widower lusting after bikini-clad young women on a road trip with grandson Zac Efron.

**(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 28/01/2016

Verdict: Unimaginably tasteless.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Brian Viner, Daily Mail, 29/01/2016

There are a few moments of hilarity, but most of the film seems merely grotesque. It's baffling as to what draws De Niro to such material when he should be playing Willy Loman or King Lear.

**(*)(*)(*)Geoffrey MacNab, The Independent, 28/01/2016

Robert De Niro and Zac Efron earn a place in cinema’s hall of infamy with an atrocious bad-taste comedy.
