Being grandparents ourselves we are aware of the things that happen in our lives, that we often times put to the back of our heads. Some of those things include a spouse dying, moving into our child(rens) homes, or moving into a nursing home along with many other things. The older we get the more we rely on our children which is really ironic if you think about it. But The War With Grandpa is the perfect mesh of humor versus reality when things aren’t going just as planned. This epic prank battle will tug at your heartstrings and teach you some very valuable lessons in the process.
Ring in the holiday season and get ready to laugh-out-loud with an all-out prank battle the whole family can enjoy, in the hilarious comedy, THE WAR WITH GRANDPA, now available to own for the first time on Digital on December 15, 2020 and on Blu-ray™, DVD and On Demand on December 22, 2020 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. 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.
Alongside De Niro and Fegley is a top-notch cast including Academy Award® nominee Uma Thurman (Kill Bill series, Pulp Fiction), Rob Riggle (21 Jump Street, “Modern Family”), Cheech Marin (Cars series, Coco), Golden Globe® winner Jane Seymour (Wedding Crashers, “Jane the Virgin”), Laura Marano (Lady Bird, “Austin & Ally”) and Academy Award® winner Christopher Walken (Hairspray, Catch Me If You Can) that bring even more laughs throughout the mischievously funny and charming film. From director Tim Hill (The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run, “SpongeBob SquarePants”) with a script by Tom J. Astle (Get Smart, Failure to Launch) and Matt Ember (Get Smart, Epic), THE WAR WITH GRANDPA is sure to entertains audiences of all ages.
