a grandpa for christmas

the year: 2007
the genre: drama
the cast: Ernest Borgnine (Bert O'Riley); Katherine Helmond (Roxie Famosa); Juliette Goglia (Becca O'Riley); Jamie Farr (Adam Johnson); Karl Sugerman (Richard Libertini)
the plot: Bert is an old-time movie-star singer/ hoofer, who's retired from showbiz and estranged from his daughter and 9-year-old granddaughter, Becca. Bert, about to sell his house and move into a retirement home, suddenly finds himself caring for Becca when her mom is hospitalized - and the bond between the two of them grows.
I love Ernest Borgnine as Bert in this sweet story of love and forgiveness.  His group of friends are a kick - especially Roxie & Adam.
