Democrat from California, wait never mind Forget all that It can be definitively stated that Dirty Grandpa is utterly unfunny Or you could say it’s as funny as child molestation a subject which incidentally inspires one of its least tasteful gags It’s hard to know which is the saddest moment of this purported comedy starring Robert De Niro and Zac Efron Is it the spectacle of the two-time Academy Award winner masturbating to porn as a sight gag His shirtless “flex off” with Efron His karaoke rapping Or his character’s nostalgic remembrance about his late wife that “we also tried anal every five years” For those who care the plot involves the title character aptly named Dick (De Niro) recruiting his straight-laced uptight lawyer grandson Jason (Efron) to drive him from Atlanta to Boca Raton after the death of his wife of four decades Jason is at first resistant since he works for his father’s (Dermot Mulroney) firm and is due to get married the next week to the neurotically controlling Meredith (Julianne Hough) But he reluctantly agrees driving his fiancée’s pink car which his grandfather alternately refers to as a “giant labia” a “giant tampon” and a “dildomobile” Although he initially appears to be a suitably grieving widower Grandpa soon is revealed as a randy horndog whose sole goal is to get laid And it looks like he’s going to get his wish when during a stop at a roadside diner they meet up with three college students on their way to Daytona Beach: Shadia (Zoey Deutch) Jason’s former high school classmate who shared his now-abandoned passion for photography; Lenore (Aubrey Plaza) who sees Dick as the fulfillment of her goal to sleep with a university student alumni and professor (he’s conned her into thinking he’s the last); and Bradley (Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman) a gay African-American who becomes the target of Dick’s running insults After stopping briefly to see Dick’s old army buddy (Danny Glover who’s also humiliated) Jason and his grandfather wind up in Daytona Beach to hook up with the threesome with an obvious romantic attraction developing between Jason and the artistic Shadia Before you know it Jason lets his freak flag fly inadvertently smoking crack and winding up on a beach naked save for a plush toy on his genitals with penises shaped in the form of a swastika drawn on his face (cue the embarrassing FaceTime call with his fiancée and her elderly rabbi) Among the other repellent characters unfortunately at hand are Pam (Jason Mantzoukas) a zany beach store proprietor/drug dealer; Jason’s cousin Nick (Adam Pally) whose picture would show up in the dictionary under “Political Incorrectness”; and a pair of buffoonish cops (Henry Zebrowski and Mo Collins the latter seeming to be doing a Jane Lynch impression) Screenwriter John M Phillip (usually comedies this bad are written by a team) thinks it’s the height of hilarity to have the characters swear as often as possible with De Niro uttering the F-word more times here than in his entire collaboration with Martin Scorsese He also says the N-word although not before politely asking his new friends a group of black toughs who he had previously beaten to a pulp if it’s ok (If you’re wondering about that last part it has to do with a revelation about De Niro’s character that won’t be revealed here; let’s just say that he possesses a very particular set of skills) Efron obviously thrilled to be working with an acting legend throws himself into the physical comedy with game enthusiasm But his penchant for constantly exposing his ultra-buff body as if he’s chagrined that he’s never appeared in a Magic Mike movie is wearing a bit thin It’s all directed as crudely as possible by Dan Mazer who somehow came to think that this inane material was on a par with that of his frequent collaborator Sacha Baron Cohen Far worse Dirty Grandpa doesn’t even have the courage of its anarchic convictions frequently abandoning its tasteless humor to indulge in sentimental scenes in which the characters pour out their hearts to the accompaniment of a treacly music score Whether he needs the money simply loves to work or has a strong desire to connect with a younger audience De Niro really needs to rethink his career priorities It’s fine for this brilliant actor to indulge his considerable comic gifts but if he keeps doing crap like this he threatens to undo a legacy forged over decades Production: Bill Block Media QED International Josephson Entertainment Cast: Robert De Niro Zac Efron Aubrey Plaza Zoey Deutch Julianne

originally appeared on The Hollywood Reporter Contact us at [email protected] Glover released a new song and music video “This Is America” under his musical moniker Childish Gambino on Saturday Night Live this weekend and the four-minute single-take music video is laden with metaphors about race and gun violence in America The “This Is America” video which has already racked up more than 20 million views on YouTube reveals provocative imagery of the rapper as he guns down a choir at one point and dances while violence breaks out all around him Childish Gambino/Glover‘s decision to wear just a pair of gray pants without a shirt in the video allows viewers to identify with “his humanness” as he raps about the violent contradictions that come with being black in America says Guthrie Ramsey a professor of music history at the University of Pennsylvania Warning: Graphic violence “The central message is about guns and violence in America and the fact that we deal with them and consume them as part of entertainment on one hand and on the other hand is a part of our national conversation” Ramsey tells TIME “You’re not supposed to feel as if this is the standard fare opulence of the music industry It’s about a counter-narrative and it really leaves you with chills” Here’s Ramsay’s take on four key moments from “This Is America” The first gunshot YouTube The opening moments of “This Is America” show a man strumming a guitar alone to choral sounds Within the first minute Gambino shoots the man who has been tied up with a head cover Childish Gambino hands the gun to another man who safely wraps it in a red cloth as the obscured man is dragged away The moment goes right into the first rapped chorus: “This is America / Don’t catch you slippin’ up” Ramsay says the timing that this happens during the song’s move from choral tones to a trap sound allows Gambino to straddle contradictions and also allows the viewer to identify with his humanness “He’s talking about the contradictions of trying to get money the idea of being a black man in America” Ramsey says “It comes out of two different sound worlds Part of the brilliance of the presentation is that you go from this happy major mode of choral singing that we associate with South African choral singing and then after the first gunshot it moves right into the trap sound” The early moment shows too that Gambino “could be anyone” according to Ramsey “You have him almost unadorned as if he were totally without all the accoutrements of stardom” he says noting that Gambino dances in neutral colored pants dark skin and with textured hair “It’s just him and therefore it could be us” Gambino dancing with schoolchildren amid violence YouTube Gambino and a group of kids clad in school uniforms dance throughout much of the “This Is America” video smiling through impeccable moves as violence erupts behind them The moment could be open to numerous interpretations for example Ramsey says the dancers could be there to distract viewers in the same way black art is used to distract people from real problems plaguing America But Ramsey says it’s better to absorb the video as a whole because America itself is a country of “very strange juxtapositions” “Even though we think of popular culture a a space where we escape he’s forcing us to understand that there’s actually nowhere to run” he says “We have to deal with the cultural violence that we have created and continue to sustain” Childish Gambino hitting the gwara gwara is what I needed to start off this week pictwittercom/gYKxbmVznk EverybodyNeedsYou (@bontsimoshe1) May 6 2018 The style of dancing by Gambino in the video also calls out the way we consume culture Gambino samples at least 10 popular dance moves derived from hip hop and African moves including the South African Gwara Gwara dance according to Forbes Ramsey says the use of so many famous dance moves show how ultra-popular pieces of culture lose their specificity over time as they become more ubiquitous “It’s really a commentary on how much violence and contradictions there are in the consuming of pop culture particularly in the violent elements of it” he says “With all the conspicuous consumption that global capitalism inspires part of what we are consuming is this appetite for violence” The gunned down choir YouTube Toward the middle of the video a choir sings enthusiastically in a happy tone before Gambino shoots them all The massacre and its quickness recall the 2015 Charleston shooting in which white supremacist Dylann Roof killed nine black people in a church basement Ramsey says The image and what it evokes shows how people struggle to reconcile with and separate different instances of violence according to Ramsey As we consume violence on all sorts of platforms be it in the news through music videos or television shows it becomes difficult to absorb very real instances of mass murders “You can’t escape the violence” Ramsey says “But you’re being forced to separate how you feel about it in our digitized world The virtual violence the real violence it’s all confused” Gambino running away in the closing moments YouTube The final moments of the video show Gambino running terrified down a long dark hallway away from a group of people as Young Thug sings “You just a Black man in this world / You just a barcode ayy” Gambino’s sprint goes back to a long tradition of black Americans having to run to save their lives according to Ramsey who says one song dating back to slavery in the 19th century was called “Run N Run” “A black person running for his or her life has just been a part of American culture dating back to slavery” he says Write to Mahita Gajanan at [email protected] “The apostles of justice and other campaigners of
