[ # ] The War with Grandpa is the young vs old revenge family movie we all need
August 14th, 2020 under Robert De Niro


I don’t know about you, but I desperately need a family comedy that involves a lot of pain and even more laughter. Well, I am going to get all of that on October 9th with The War with Grandpa.

Sixth-grader Peter (Oakes 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 (Robert 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.

I know most people will say that Robert De Niro’s greatest movies are his Oscar-winning films. I say they are his revenge comedies. Watching him torture Ben Stiller in the Meet the Fockers franchise is pure gold. What about all the craziness he brought the Analyze This and then That? Then there was that movie he went muscle to muscle with Zac Efron in Dirty Grandpa. This is why, I think, he became an actor. However, other people might say it is for Raging Bull and Taxi Driver.
