You Can't Help But Cheer, And You Will Watch The Clock
4 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

Ronnie wants to be just like his grandfather, Joe, an elderly blues singer and guitar-player.

Ronnie's dad isn't close with granddad, and chooses to put him in a home.

But there is something wrong with the old folks home. The residents suddenly get ill and develop high blood pressure, then alzheimers.

Ronnie meets a young girl whose grandmother showed these symptoms before she died, and Ronnie fears Joe will be next.

Fantastically done adventure with those who do the bad deeds being appropriately punished in the end.

Sides will change and the ending is a gem.

Face it, there was no way Bill Cobbs as Joe was not going to emerge upbeat.

Everyone gets what they deserve.

Ten stars.
