I think I was about 14 or 15 when I saw this movie for the first time. I also think this was the last movie that actually brought me to tears.
The story of Rocky and his grandson was just so touching. It struck a chord and reminded me of my relationship with my own grandfather. You can't help but love the old fart.
By the time the movie was over I had felt as if these characters had really come to life, especially Rocky. I think that is what is so great about this movie. This crusty old man really grows on you and it's hard to let him go at the end.
This movie is definitely worth renting if you get the chance. A great family movie as well.
