The War with Grandpa

Will Peter ever get his room back?.


The War with Grandpa
Somewhat of a mash-up between “Meet the Parents” and “Home Alone,” we pick up the story when Grandpa moves back in with his family. The problems start when grandpa takes over the son’s room, and the son is demoted to the creepy attic. Although he loves his grandpa, he wants his room back... so he has no choice but to declare war. With the help of his friends, he devises outrageous plans to make Grandpa surrender the room. But Grandpa is tougher than he looks. Rather than give in, Grandpa plans to get even.

Comedy, Drama, Family.

Tomatometer quote iconFitfully funny but mostly misguided, The War with Grandpa will leave audiences with a handful of chuckles -- and a lot of questions about what this talented cast was thinking.
