Great Family Movie
23 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have always been an Ernest Borgnine fan going back to my childhood and the Mchale's Navy days. I have seen the comments on this being a sappy movie. This may be true but for those of us that enjoy clean old fashion movies this one gets an A+. The actors are outstanding and the theme is applicable to today's world. If you are looking for sex, violence, and vulgar language this movie is not for you. This would make especially good viewing if your family has experienced any estranged relationships. The movie is appropriate for any age and will be especially appreciated by older adults. It definitely deserved the Golden Globe nomination.
