Peter is thrilled that Grandpa is coming to live with his family. That is, until Grandpa moves into Peter's room, forcing him upstairs into the creepy attic. And though he loves his grandpa he wants his room back - so he has no choice but to declare war. With the help of his friends, Peter devises outrageous plans to make Grandpa surrender the room. But Grandpa is tougher than he looks. Rather than give in, Grandpa plans to get even.

When Ed picks his grandson up from school, the boy is wearing a jacket. When they arrive at their destination, it cuts to the interior of the car and the boy isn't wearing a jacket. When the boy leaves the car he's wearing the jacket again. See more »
Robert DeNiro continues to churn out horrible performances in quickie comedy movies that copy other comedy movies, and here he is at his worst. The War with Grandpa is a comedy that has no comedy moments.
There is nothing funny about a kid who decides to get over on Grandpa by being at war with him. The humor is degrading and depressing, and there is no upside to any of this. No family values, no family love, nothing positive comes out of this movie. The message is sad and pathetic.
