Goofs

While Grandpa's stories are initially considered to be fantasies by his grandson, his reference to Colonel Sanders being a participant and being "Private" Sanders during the Bay of Pigs invasion would be unbelievable simply due to Sander's age, even if the story later turns out to be true. Harlan Sanders was born in September of 1890 and would have thus been 70 years old when the Cuban invasion occurred in April of 1961. See more »

nothing earth shaking, but mindless fun.
8 December 2017 | by mstyles-624-399356See all my reviews

The movie had some charm, and a bumbling comedic uplift.. Some great actors. Technically Looked sharp, fault with the clichéd way overdone plot.. May have worked better if the grandpas' were 10 years younger..Kinda sad, to see these great actors, have aged so much..

Still it was a 'feel good' piece of fluff movie..It did get me to laugh and smile a few t times. I did enjoy it, Given the material they had to work with, all actors did a great job..
