Generation Gap - a film for all ages
29 October 2008 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

Generation Gap, an original Hallmark Channel film, is a movie for all generations. It is a touching family story about a troubled teen (played by teen heart-throb Alex Black) who is forced to live with his grandfather (Ed Asner). His grandfather is a no nonsense WWII Vet who is not going to take his excuses and puts him to work. Dylan fights it at first, but as time goes by, this teen becomes a man, and the grandfather gets to know his grandson. What we get is a movie that will make you laugh and cry, and leaves you feeling like calling a family member to tell them you love them! This is a film you won't want to miss, and should watch it with as many generations as possible! Alex Black (Ned's Declassified) gives a brilliant performance, and injects a youthful exuberance to an otherwise veteran, but aging cast. Wonderful performances were delivered by all, including Ed Asner (7 time Emmy winner), Rue McClanahan and Ralph Waite.
