I’m always looking for good family friendly movies to watch with my three kids. I knew we were going to have a lot of extra time on our hands with winter break and no sports practices so I was really excited when I got the opportunity to review The War With Grandpa starring Robert DeNiro. You know it will be a good movie with that guy!
Before we sat down to watch the movie my youngest daughter told me that she had actually read the book that this film is based on. That made it even more fun!
This movie is about a grandpa that moves in with his daughter and their family after his wife passes away. The grandson is forced to move into the attic so that Grandpa can have his room. Needless to say, he’s not happy about this takeover and wages war! A prank battle begins between the two.
This movie is filled with laughter but lots of heartwarming moments too. It doesn’t take place during the holidays but the little grand daughter has an obsession with Christmas which makes it a fun movie to watch during the holidays.
Here’s the synopsis: “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.”
The movie is now available on Blu-Ray and DVD as well as digital on the Movies Anywhere app. Pick up a copy as a stocking stuffer or download a copy to cozy up and watch together as a family over the holidays!
