Movie Reviews

Old Softy | Florida | 07/25/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A Grandpa for Christmas is a heartwarming tale of reconciliation. Ernest Borgnine is his usual somewhat crusty but loveable self, and Juliette Goglia, who plays his granddaughter, gets to show off her beautiful singing voice. If you like a story about family members coming together for the first time and helping each other, this movie is for you. I've seen it on TV twice. Now, I'm buying it!"
A Story of Love and Forgiveness
Jessica Ann Jordan | Valdosta, GA USA | 09/20/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

""A Grandpa for Christmas" is an amazing story about a young girl who longs for a place to call home and the Grandfather who gives it to her. This movie is filled with friends and families who heal old, deep-seated wounds and find that loving and supporting one another is the greatest gift of all. The cast is filled with many old favorites, including Ernest Borgnine and Katherine Helmond, as well as, an up-and-comer named Juliette Goglia. I have only seen this movie about three times on TV and I am pre-ordering it immediately. "A Grandpa for Christmas" is a WINNER and is filled with strong family values.
Ernest Borgnine Is Awesome, 92 And Just Getting Better

"Ernest Borgnine is a phenomenon. How he can make movies at 92 years old is beyond me. God bless him. My mother and I watched this movie together last Christmas and we loved it. I really don't know how anybody could rate this movie lower than 5 stars. Great actors and a great movie. I remember watching Ernest Borgnine play a angel in Little House. I also really love Katherine Helmond (Who's The Boss) Just a great move."
