Atom User Reviews for The War with Grandpa
For all these people giving this more than 2 stars, they are CLEARLY desperate for entertainment. Poorly acted jumbled mess that tries desperately to take itself seriously. Pathetically contrived. Even attempts to redeem itself with a “bigger” message at the end. This is where old has-beens like DeNiro come to die.
A nice easy movie DeNiro great in the part.
a little dull, but fun
Felt good to laugh!
Good & cute!!
Great family movie. Beside the Christmas and Birthday stuff, everything else was great for family and kids.
Loved this show! An all star cast for a cute, feel good movie for the whole family!!
We were eager to get out and get back to the movie theater even if it maybe to see a mediocre movie And that is exactly what this was. The premise seemed like it had potential for some good laughs but often the ‘comedy’ was forced and not funny. At times I just wanted to bytch slap the little kid for being such a whiny brat and let’s face it, Robert De Niro hasn’t made a decent movie since ‘Meet The Fockers’.. Is this movie entertaining? Yeah, kinda... But if we weren’t living in a Covid world right now and movies were being pumped out at a normal pace, I would skip this movie in a heartbeat and just watch it at home when I came out. Anyone giving it more than 2-3 stars clearly is just happy to see a movie again and not truly giving you an honest review.
Despite the efforts of an A-list cast led by Robert De Niro, this so-called family entertainment is barely passable piffle.
There are some random chuckles along the way . . . . For the most part, though, The War with Grandpa seems like the sort of brightly-lit disposable family comedy that fills the Disney Channel schedule, only with an insanely overqualified cast.
The War with Grandpa will probably prove riotously funny to small fry while providing some compensations to adults with its supremely overqualified cast.
