Peter (Oakes Fegley) and his Grandpa (Robert De Niro) used to be very close, but when Grandpa Jack moves in with the family, Peter is forced to give up his most prized possession, his bedroom. Peter will stop at nothing to get his room back, scheming with friends to devise a series of pranks to drive him out. But Grandpa doesn’t give up easily and before long, it’s an all out war! This coming-of-age family comedy is based on the bestselling book by Robert Kimmel Smith and is directed by Tim Hill (Alvin and the Chipmunks, Hop).
