A sweet encounter of two generations

My 12 year old daughter and I watched this movie on Netflix and we really enjoyed it. A very sweet protecting experienced De Niro - made us think of my father the entire film... and the youngster little by little appreciating of his calm, experience and wisdom... probably not necessarily realistic how everyone in the young company gets to appreciate him, but it is quite adorable. Some sexy moments that can be “explained” with a diversion (the older guy having an erection while getting massaged and another guy getting an impression that a lady is giving him a fellation when she is actually massaging his leg) Or that won’t even be understood by a younger kid, that seemed unnecessary but in general a rather innocent movie. Some drinking, but Anne Hathaway is so ill after getting drunk And De Niro trying to get her to stop with insisting looks, it is not portrayed as positive. Anyhow, we Had some good laughs and found it quite endearing.
