Gandalf The Grey Versus The White

I've seen a number of references about how different Gandalf the Grey is compared to Gandalf The White in The Lord of the Rings films. Really?

I didn't see much difference between the movies and it's been about two years since I read the books for only the second time. Gimli says in the movie, "This new Gandalf is more grumpy than the old one." But that's the only overt observation in words or behavior that I remember from the movies.

Would anyone care to cite examples from the books and movies about how the two Gandalfs are different? I trust Tolkien may have pointed it out better than in the movies, making the book comparison easier, so maybe it would be good to compare how the movies might have failed or succeeded in translating the differences between the two Gandalfs from the book.
