Was this supposed to be this awful?

Gramps Goes to College is about a older man (later nicknamed Gramps) who decides to go to college so he can teach people about his faith. Its a preachy, stupid film that is more propaganda than actual film making. Gramps is a very unlikable character. He just goes back to school to preach and be a annoyance to the school system. However the main professor comes off a cartoon and tells the students that there is no God much like Kevin Sorbo in Gods Not Dead. Aside from spreading his faith Gramps starts a sports team but only wants Christians on his team. Again this shows how unlikable he is by actually discriminating against people of other faiths. In one instance he gets asked for an autograph for standing up to the professor and he actually turns the kids down. Gramps never learns or grows from his collage experience he just stays a unlikable man who goes and rants about religion and one of fluoride in the water. The film gets more insane as one of the college girls actually dies at a party and comes back to life and she claims she went to Hell. The whole film comes off like the crazed ramblings of a cranky old man. Then again this film was made by the same people who made one of the most bigoted films ever made The Right to Believe. Gramps Goes to College is just a very painful and annoying film only to be seen to poke fun at.
