Review

Our Score
Ernest Borgnine brings warmth and spirit to a simple tale of family values in this uplifting festive drama. He plays a retired actor who has to care for a granddaughter he didn't know existed after his estranged daughter is hospitalised. Ghosts are laid to rest and songs shared as grandpa soon wins over the antagonistic youngster with the assistance of his veteran showbiz pals. There's plenty of tugging of the heartstrings and few surprises, yet despite its saccharine predictability the feature has a wholesome charm that's hard to resist. Borgnine and his fellow oldies are gently endearing, making the obligatory life lessons easier to digest.
