Story Worth Watching, 2 February 2008
Author: wordsmith_57 from United States

This is a story within a story. Peter Falk does a reprisal of his grandfather role from Princess Bride, but with much more flair. "Pop Up" has a repertoire of stories which delight his grandchildren, especially Chris, played by Josh Hutcherson. Tim Daly plays the uptight father, John, who has zero tolerance for his bon vivant father, and he obviously has pent up issues towards his father. All this comes together when Pop Up takes off with Chris on a road trip--without John's permission. There are layers to this family movie. It's real; it's funny, and clever in its theme of second chances. It's predicable in many places, and there are plot holes; however, it has so much going for it I can't help myself, but I am going to buy it for my collection. A good generational movie is difficult to come by these days.
