What parents need to know
Parents need to know that The War with Grandpa stars Robert De Niro as an elderly grandfather who moves in with his daughter (Uma Thurman) and her family. Mayhem ensues when his grandson, Peter (Oakes Fegley), is forced to give Grandpa his bedroom. Peter is determined to reclaim his room and enlists his friends to pull off a series of increasingly outrageous pranks to scare his grandfather away. But Grandpa isn't easily intimated and gets his own friends on board (Christopher Walken, Cheech Marin, and Jane Seymour) to wage an all-out battle. It seems safe to expect tons of slapstick violence and rude humor.
