Trivia

Zac Efron performed all of his own nude scenes, except for the embarrassing beach sequence and nude motorcycle ride. Director Dan Mazer states on the commentary that it was one of the most expensive scenes to make in the film. Zac wasn't actually nude at all, and wore flesh-colored briefs, which were edited out during post-production. A stunt penis was also placed over his crotch using CGI for the split-second frames where he is most exposed. Mazer and screenwriter John Phillips mentioned that when the restricted German trailer was released to the internet, that a community of online fans were trying to grab frames of the actor's penis. Subsequently, it turns out this is the one nude scene in the film, that isn't actually him. See more »

Goofs

While on the golf course the grandpa hot wires the golf cart. He hot wires it like you would a ICE car with the same sound effects even though golf carts are electric and an electric sound effect is heard after the fact. Also he would need to keep the wires crossed to complete the circuit. See more »

not that bad, actually, given the expectations
16 April 2016 | by stefanpuiuroSee all my reviews

This movie isn't actually that bad; it certainly doesn't deserve the endless line of 1-star reviews. I went to see it with very, very low expectations, after reading a negative review of it, and ended up enjoying quite a bit of it.

Even from the trailer you can tell this is a silly, childish comedy with plenty of toilet and/or sexual humor. I don't know what people came to expect from it - this certainly doesn't attempt to be anything else besides that. Maybe many people aren't used to seeing De Niro in such a role, but hey, he's done other silly comedies already. Not all the jokes are that great, but it was good fun nevertheless.

So, definitely childish, definitely silly, but also definitely funny in my book. I even ended up feeling for De Niro's character - hey, it's his last stand after all. So, if you don't expect much and aren't easily offended by jokes that sometimes are a bit too silly / gross /etc, you might even enjoy this!
