What Is There in The Movie?
Recently widower Ed Marino (Robert De Niro) is visited by his daughter Sally Marino-Decker (Uma Thurman), who wants him to come in with her family after mistakenly shoplifting from a grocery store owing to having difficulties with the self-checkouts and making a fuss with the store manager. Ed is adamant about not leaving his home, which he constructed entirely by himself. Despite this, Sally persuades Ed to move in with her and offers him her son Peter’s (Oakes Fegley) bedroom. Peter is displeased at being forced to share his room with his grandfather and being sent to the attic.
Sally’s husband Arthur (Rob Riggle) and two kids, Mia (Laura Marano) and Jenny (Jennifer Garner), greet Ed (Poppy Gagnon). Ed spends the most of his first day in his new room, sitting in his chair and gazing at the sky, still thinking about his late wife.
Peter then informs his buddies Billy (Juliocesar Chavez), Steve (Isaac Kragten), and Emma (T.J. McGibbon) of his grandfather’s decision to move in with his family and live in his room. Peter declares war after a horrible first night in his new quarters.
Ed agrees to go to battle as long as they follow the agreed-upon rules of engagement, which include not damaging other people’s property and not informing the family. Peter plays a number of practical jokes on Ed, such as substituting his shaving cream with quick-drying foam and ruining his record player.
