Rate this:
Sixth-grader Peter is pretty much the average kid, he likes gaming, hanging with his friends and his beloved pair of Air Jordans. But when his recently widowed grandfather 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.

This Was Surprisingly Better Than I Thought It Was Going To Be! I Really Thought It Was Great. It's Definitely Not Oscar-Worthy Or Anything but it was pretty good. The Dodge ball Scene was pretty great. But What I Did not like was the ending kinda sets up a sequel and just, DON'T DO IT, DON'T MAKE A SEQUEL!

Enjoyed DeNiro (as always). His interactions with the 'youngest daughter' character were endearing. This is a family-oriented movie and I suspect kids about 8-12 years old will enjoy it more than adults or younger kids. It's not awful, but not really good either. A lot of pranks are played, some resulting in "collateral damage" and other unintended consequences. Of course that's the message, as is stated outright by Grandpa at the beginning of "the war".

War leads to misery and unintended consequences.

A war between relatives can be hilarious indeed but usually it ends in reconciliation for the better good!

This is a movie that is heavy on the high jinks (some pranks are more creative than others), but light on the heart. There's a good message about the importance of family that should be there but doesn't quite come through (maybe because of the excessive gags). The movie is based on a book (same title) and while I haven't read it in over eleven years, I will have fonder memories of the book than the movie.

Yes. Very funny and Deniro can do comedy too. Loved it.

This was such an entertaining movie! My only wish is that I'd actually read the book first.

Relax people, this is a comedy, it told a story. From some of the comments people seemed to expect more. When I was much younger I loved comedy's but as I get older don't really like as well. But both my wife and I had some laughs and at the end if we were to give it a rating like a college student it would get a BIG C+, almost a B. Fine acting by fine actors. We really enjoyed who was in it. We are both pleased with the hour and a half we spent being entertained. Sure the hell beats all the political crap going on, all the dishonest lying from both sides. Be thankful movies like this are available.
