‘The War With Grandpa’ Review

Stars: Robert De Niro, Christopher Walken, Cheech Marin, Jane Seymour, Uma Thurman, Rob Riggle, Oakes Fegley, Juliocesar Chavez, Laura Marano | Written by Tom J. Astle, Matt Ember | Directed by Tim Hill

And when Ed lays out the rules of engagement, an escalating series of pranks and practical jokes ensues.
