The War with Grandpa Review

Starring:

Robert DeNiro – Ed (Grandpa)

Oakes Fegley- Peter

Christopher Walken – Jerry

If a relative moves in to your room, it means WAR!

Robert DeNiro stars in the new family comedy “The War with Grandpa”, as a senior made to move in with his family sending his grandson out of his room and up to the attic. The War with Grandpa also stars Uma Thurman as Sally, Ed’s daughter married to Arthur (Rob Riggle) and their two kids Mia (Laura Marano) and Peter (Fegley).

Ed (DeNiro), a retired homebuilder and widower, is struggling to adapt to the modern ways of life after he lost his wife. He is arrested after shoplifting at the local store when he wasn’t able to use the self-checkout, having his daughter bail him out and demand he move in with her family. Ed agrees and pleases almost the entire family…Arthur who still feels that Ed dislikes him and most of all Peter who is booted up to the attic to make room for Grandpa. Peters first few nights in the attic have him chased by a bat and run into a rafter, the roof leaking on to his pillow as he tried to sleep. After talking to his friends at school, Peter decides to declare war on Grandpa and the winner gets the room.

 

Ed wakes to find a letter in his room with a declaration of war from his grandson. Thinking it was a joke he just ignored it. After using foam sealant for shaving cream Ed realized Peter was for real. Ed sits Peter down and clarifies the rules of engagement, NO ONE is to be told about the war and no collateral damage (no pranking anyone else in the family). You know that means the entire family is on the front line!
