Return to Mayberry (1986)

Directed by Bob Sweeney
My rating: 2 stars out of 4

The cast of The Andy Griffith Show is reunited when Andy returns to Mayberry to run for sheriff. He changes his mind when he finds out Barney is also running. However, when a monster is spotted in the local lake, Barney overreacts and it is up to Andy to help him save his reputation. The cast members are old and haggard but mostly do a good job or reprising their familiar roles. Nostalgic and genial but unnecessary made-for-TV movie for the show's admittedly large fan base.
