Best Family Movie Ever Made
27 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love Reba McIntire and Burt Reynolds, and they did a beautiful job showing love,friendship, respect, trust, and loyalty in this movie. This movie should also teach all of us not to judge someone by the way they look on the outside, it's what God has in store inside that counts. What an awesome family movie! We need more movies like this that show also, that it's not having money or an important job that matters, it's family and your friends and neighbors. Burt Reynolds should be given so much credit for using the kids in his acting studio, and for truly showing how much in real life as well as in the movie how much he deeply cares for each one of these kids. You could see the love in his eyes and face for each boy in that movie. Reba is just as awesome as usual. She keeps her Christian faith in everything she does and it shows. Thank you and God Bless you both.
