Movie Reviews

  • while a nice lesson is inserted at the end about why we should avoid war, it's pretty apples to oranges. The better, stronger message lands much more clearly: Spend some time with Grandpa; you won't regret it
    3 of 5 by Tara McNamara [Common Sense Media ]
  • it's merely bland, an adequate milquetoast time-waster for a very young and very undiscerning audience
    2 of 5 by Benjamin Lee [The Guardian ]
  • it goes without saying that the film is childish, playing fast and loose with hijinks such as gas, nudity, toe fungus and toilet humor, not to mention the treatment of old people as old farts. But none of this is rendered in a particularly funny way
    Review rate : D+ by Asher Luberto [The Playlist ]
  • harmless to its viewers if not its characters, "The War with Grandpa" will probably prove riotously funny to small fry while providing some compensations to adults with its supremely overqualified cast
    by Frank Scheck [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • based on the popular kids' book by Robert Kimmel Smith, "The War with Grandpa" is a sluggish hodgepodge of slapstick humor that barely holds together its illogically motivated plot
    Review rate : D+ by Jude Dry [IndieWire ]
  • an aggressively boisterous but rarely funny comedy, which keeps pushing its gags one step too far; There's a pleasing kernel of genuine warmth glowing at the heart of this movie, but it's been heavily insulated—almost buried—by juvenile silliness
    Review rate : C by Mike D'Angelo [AV Club ]
  • an absolutely unessential -- and only mildly amusing -- family comedy; The movie, sadly, continues Robert De Niro's drift, over the years, from prestige drama into poorly reviewed comedy
    1.5 of 4 by Michael O'Sullivan [The Washington Post ]
  • a funnier than expected family comedy; "The War with Grandpa" made me laugh consistently through the entire runtime. The characters are sweet and likeable. A silly story about a kid pranking his grandpa is a welcome break from our awful reality
    2.5 of 5 by Julian Roman [MovieWeb ]
