This week, our family settled in for a fun movie night to watch The War with Grandpa — which by the way, has an all star cast. After seeing the trailer this summer, I knew it was one I was thoroughly going to enjoy.
The only roles I have ever seen Robert DeNiro in are ones that are super serious or full of drama. I truly loved seeing him in this new persona and cannot wait until he makes more movies like this.
I think out of all the characters, he was my favorite.
About The War with Grandpa
Based on Robert Kimmel Smith’s multi-award-winning beloved children’s book of the same name, the film follows a series of escalating shenanigans that ensue when a grandfather (Academy Award® winner Robert De Niro, The Irishman, Meet the Parents franchise) moves in with his daughter, forcing his grandson (Oakes Fegley, The Goldfinch, This Is Where I Leave You) to begrudgingly give up his bedroom.
Packed with heart and hysterical hijinks from start to finish, THE WAR WITH GRANDPA is the perfect “family-friendly comedy” (Pete Hammond, Deadline) everyone can enjoy during the holiday and beyond.
Sixth-grader Peter (Fegley) is pretty much your average kid—he likes gaming, hanging with his friends, and his beloved pair of Air Jordans. But when his recently widowed grandfather Ed (De Niro) moves in with Peter’s family, the boy is forced to give up his most prized possession of all, his bedroom.
Unwilling to let such an injustice stand, Peter devises a series of increasingly elaborate pranks to drive out the interloper, but Grandpa Ed won’t go without a fight. Soon, the friendly combatants are engaged in an all-out war with side-splitting consequences.
