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.

But Grandpa is tougher than he looks. Rather than give in, Grandpa plans to get even.

Great movie
30 August 2020 | by natbro96See all my reviews

I haven't laughed so much watching a movie in such a long time. Great actors, especially my all time favourite Robert De Niro, great clean fun. So glad I didn't listen to the negative reviews. So glad I have a sense of humour.
