Plot Summary
When grandpa moves in with his family and takes over his grandson's room was is declared
Director
Star #4
Robert De Niro is the human equivalent of the Energizer Bunny. He's pushing 80 years old, but he works as much, if not more, than most Hollywood A-listers. In fact, he still has two films, other than this one, still to be released this year, and five other films in some stage of production. And the beast thing about his acting is that he makes every film he is in better.

There is no way this film will ever be mistaken for cinematic brilliance, but it is one that the whole family can enjoy together. It's filled with funny one-liners, an entertaining story, and a ton of slapstick. You and your kids will be laughing all the way through.

The only thing I didn't like about this movie is that it got a little too preachy with the anti-war message. It's not that the message was wrong, it just felt like they were trying to force a moral lesson into the movie that didn't really need to be there. If it had been just one moment between grandfather and grandson after their feud ended that would have been okay, but it comes up several times making it too much.

Aside from that, this is the first new-release film that the whole family can enjoy in a theater in the last six months. If you are looking for a fun outing with the kids, give this one a shot. It's not a fantastic film, but it is good enough to make it worth your time and money.
