fun enough, but has some flaws
1 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My biggest issue with this one is why didn't the kid have more questions when he "came back" at the end?? If you think about it, everything would have made no sense to him at all.

Aside from that, this is an enjoyable movie, albeit a flawed one. Charlie Schlatter had a lot of fun with the role, and I warmed up to it (at first he struck me as rather annoying). The movie mostly revolves around his performance as a re-young George Burns, and he does a pretty good job with that.

I really liked the Anita Morris character; it was a rather unsympathetic role but she got into it and that made it worth watching.

Jennifer Runyon is a trifle nondescript here; she doesn't get to do a whole lot other than smile and look pretty -- which she does well. She got a fair amount of lines, but there wasn't much interesting about them.

Don't expect greatness here, just some silly fun, and you'll enjoy it.
