Gramps Goes to College


Ty Bounds, a workaholic as a computer programmer for 35 years, has retired. No longer forced to work for a living, he seeks how he can spend his time service God. Following the lead of the Holy Spirit, he returns to college to wage war against secular humanism and to mentor a new generation in truth seeking.

Dove Review

“Gramps Goes to College” is a dynamic movie about God’s power. It is about a retired man who decides to go to college to study biology and right away he clashes with Professor Tucker, a woman who at the same time is attracted to him. He finds holes with her evolution theories and she becomes upset with his belief in creationism. Ty Bounds, also called “Gramps”, makes friends easily with the young college students, many of which are Christians and admire his firm stance.

The movie focuses on defending one’s faith in God, and also shows the struggles of a young woman named Stephanie, who is attracted to a young Christian man named Brad. Will Stephanie influence Brad, whom she takes to a party and gets him to drink, or will he influence her, as he doesn’t want to be sidetracked from his faith. You will have to watch the movie to find out. It is an inspiring film and “Gramps Goes to College” makes it clear, you can influence people no matter what age you are. It also shows that a miracle can come along sometimes just when we need one the most. This movie has earned our Dove Seal for ages twelve plus. You won’t regret watching it!
