Today, on Redhead Mom, I’m sharing about WAR WITH GRANDPA in partnership with Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.

The War with Grandpa Movie

If you’re looking for a cute movie to watch with your family, THE WAR WITH GRANDPA is a good one to check out! It’s the Wise Guy vs. the Pint Size when Robert DeNiro gears up for an epic prank battle in this heartfelt family comedy now available to own. This movie features an all-star cast including Uma Thurman, Rob Riggle, Cheech Marin, Jane Seymour, Laura Marano, and Christopher Walken. 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 Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand 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.
