This Time Griffith is the Bad Guy
5 February 2020 | by ryan-10075See all my reviews

At the funeral of the mother of Clarke MacGruder (John Ritter) his father Jack (Andy Griffith) shows up after years of neglect. He meets his daughter-in-law Betsy (Mary-Margaret Humes) and his grandson Matthew (Casey Wurzbach). Jack is trying to get back into the life of his son and grow a real bond with his grandson. Griffith is wonderful bringing that some folksiness that he brought to us in THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW and MATLOCK. But, there are some other ingredients as well. Such as extreme rage and hatred. Things are not what they seem with old Jacky.

Good just to see Griffith in a role I had never seen him in before. There are a few new facial expressions for Griffith to go along with essentially a new type of character for me to go along with his other characters. I did see this TV movie under the title RELATIVE FEAR.
