Tear-jerker
17 October 2004 | by DrCalienteSee all my reviews

As schmaltzy as it might seem today, this "Movie of the Week" was a real tear-jerker, about a young boy (very well played by Scott Jacoby) and his renegade grandfather (the incomparable Herschel Bernardi), running away to Canada (close parallels there to the extant Vietnam War), in order to escape parental authority.

The theme song (by the talented, now veteran songwriter, Paul Williams) still rings in my head: "Leave us alone, we live in the country...etc." Get out the hankies, maybe old, recycled ones, nevertheless, prepare to cry.

Available now in VHS, I hope they play this one on TV sometime in the near future, too!
