This is a wonderful movie I want to share with my daughter.
19 February 2002 | by (Washington, United States) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent movie. I watched this movie years ago, but still remember most of it. I remember laughing so hard, I cried. The actors were wonderful. Sandra Dee is beautiful and just right for the role of the grand daughter. Maurice, I wish he could have been my grand father. Andy and Robert were the two best good looking guys a girl could chose from. This movie is just pure fun. This movie is great fun for the whole family. Please!!!! Someone release this on VHS or DVD or both.
