Robert De Niro’s latest in the long line of basic family comedies (not including 2019’s ‘Irishman’, of course), ‘The War With Grandpa’, has him getting juvenile with a bunch of elderly friends as he enlists their help in a turf war with his sixth-grader grandson whose bedroom he has taken over. Over the last decade, we’ve come to expect this kind of bland, senseless, watch-once-and-forget entertainment from De Niro (again, ‘The Irishman’ being such a refreshing anomaly), but to have to see the likes of Christopher Walken, Uma Thurman, Cheech Marin, and Jane Seymour sleepwalk through a movie that seriously underutilizes their talents is a blow to cinema-lovers everywhere.
It’s not to say that ‘The War With Grandpa’ is an outright unwatchable movie. There’s nothing wrong with the film, as long as you don’t expect it to be anything other than the shallow, average family comedy it is. It’s one of those films that you watch and immediately forget afterward because it makes absolutely no mark. Mostly, ‘The War With Grandpa’ will slightly entertain undiscerning audiences under the age of 13 and may elicit some laughs at all the jokes about bodily functions. Curious to know where you can stream this film online? Let’s find out.
What is The War With Grandpa About?
When technologically-challenged Ed (who is also grumpy and grieving for his recently departed wife) ends up stealing food from a store, his daughter (Thurman) decides to move him into her own house, putting him up in her son’s bedroom and relegating the 12-year-old to a shabby attic. Seriously, who puts their son in an attic without cleaning it out and making it livable first? Anyway, this causes Peter the six-grader a lot of grief and he wants grandpa to give his room back. Peter sends Ed a formal declaration of war if the room is not returned to the rightful owner in 24 hours. What ensues is war in the form of juvenile, increasingly basic pranks between grandpa and grandson.
