Wilder Days 2003 87 TV 2.5 out of 5 ducks
Grandpa "Pop-Up" is a teller of tales, whom grandson Chris is all about, but dad John is tired of hearing -- the popular one is that of the Wilder Days. Pop-Up is sent to a nursing home, but he's not keen on staying, and he and Chris take off in his 1959 Chevy on a road trip of sorts. Pop-Up tells stories, they meet a few people along the way (hitchhikers making home movies with his camcorder, that sort of thing), and end up at an old boat, landed on the bank, with Wilder Days Circus on it, showing the stories Pop-Up was telling are all true. (Pop-Up also gets tangled up with pop-up books, and the one of Wilder Days is popping, but there's no writing in it yet.) John takes off after his son and to return Chris, finally catching up to them at the boat (though there were several near encounters). There's a bit of row-boating lessons from Pop-Up for Chris, and when grandpa slips and hits his head, John stays with him and Chris takes it on himself to row to find help. Chris gets back with help, but we see Pop-Up has passed on, and John is looking glum. Back at home, John has learned to lighten up a bit as a dad, and he and the kids (Chris and his little sister) help re-tell the story, as John writes in the words into the Wilder Days pop-up book.
