absolutely horrible--avoid this like the plague!!
21 February 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Although I generally HATE made for TV reunion movies, this one is by far the worst--and that's saying a lot, as there were a lot of terrible movies in this genre made in the 1980s and 90s.

So what made this movie so goldarn rotten? Well, apart from horrible and 100% unfunny writing, it's pointless to even consider doing a "reunion" when so many of the original cast were either dead (Raymond Bailey and Irene Ryan), refused to become involved (Max Baer, Jr.) or just looked dead due to their wooden performance (Buddy Ebsen). BUT, the writers being "clever" blokes thought no one would mind if they have a double pretend to be Jethro (looking much like Bela Lugosi's double in PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE) and substitute Granny with Imogene Coca who was billed as "Granny's Maw" (and, by my calculations she would have to be at least 150 years-old give or take a few decades).

The end result is just painful to watch and contains 0% entertainment. I wouldn't even show this crap to chimps, as they would become enraged with the lousy quality that permeates this bilge.
