Awesome!!!
16 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Incredible! This proves what an awesome actor Griffith really is! I have always appreciated 'Andy Griffith' and 'Matlock', but when I saw 'Gramps,' I fell in love with him! I have been very disappointed to never have been able to find this movie anywhere since it's first showing and I think it a real shame. Nobody ever gets to see how awesome Andy really is as an actor because we never see anything but 'Andy Griffith' and 'Matlock.' It is wonderful to see another side of an actor than we normally see. Are we so afraid to change our image of him that we can't allow for versatility? Thumbs up to Mr. Griffith for being brave enough to do something different!
