THE WAR WITH GRANDPA will be released in theaters on October 9, 2020.
It is every kid's dream. To be able to prank their family members at least once. This funny movie, shows more than that.
About the movie
Sixth-grader Peter (Oakes 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 (Robert 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.
Based on the award-winning book by Robert Kimmel Smith, The War with Grandpa is a hilarious family comedy featuring an all-star supporting cast: Christopher Walken, Uma Thurman, Rob Riggle, Cheech Marin, Laura Marano and Jane Seymour.

Did we like it?
If you read the book, you know they tried to keep it very similar to it. It is a fun movie with lots of things to laugh about. I would say that due to the fact that some of the pranks are mean, probably not ideal to watch with little ones, but for sure older kids would have a good laugh and understand the message of family unity at the end.
Our theaters are closed and we are sticking to stay at home safe orders, but I am sure it would be a great movie to watch in theaters when things go back to normal or in places where is safe to do that.
