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, Blu-ray™, DVD and On Demand from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. We were sent a copy of The War With Grandpa for review purposes, and given the opportunity to share an extra copy with one lucky reader! So read on about our thoughts and be sure to enter the giveaway for a chance to own a copy!

The War With Grandpa, based off the novel written by Robert Kimmel Smith, features Robert DeNiro(Grandpa Ed), Uma Thurman(Sally), Cheech Marin(Danny), Christopher Walken(Jerry) and Jane Seymour(Diane). The movie also boasts Disney stars: Oakes Fegley(Peter) from Pete’s Dragon(2016) and  Laura Marano(Mia) from Austin & Ally. As a bonus, the end credit track, “Point of War” is performed by Laura Marano.

In a nutshell, Grandpa Ed(DeNiro) moves in, unwillingly, with his daughter Sally(Thurman) and her family. He is given Peter’s(Fegley) room and Peter is moved into the attic. The attic already has a few tenants(the creepy-crawly kind) and a roof that leaks. This leaves Peter on edge, vying for his old room. After talking to his friends, he declares ‘war’ against Grandpa Ed, and the slapstick pranks and hilarity ensue.

The War With Grandpa has a familiar ‘Home Alone’ vibe with many slapstick pranks going on between Grandpa Ed and Peter. The pranks they pull are realistic, yet ridiculous, and eventually go too far, affecting the whole family. Of course, there is a great message at the end of this, but it takes an awful long time to get there.

The War With Grandpa was an overall fun movie. Rated PG for some thematic elements, rude humor and language, I would highly recommend this movie for older children.
