Embittered son meets ghostly spirit guide in coming to terms with incarcerated father
26 May 2002 | by (NYC/FL) – See all my reviews

While I'm always a sucker for a "Hallmark moment", many folks will find this film a bit too "Disney" for their tastes.

The film does have some interesting angles and is eminently watchable if a bit too "after-school special" in spots.

The idea of a spirit guide in the persona of Jim Thorpe was a nice touch and the coincidental parallels between Thorpe's fall from grace and that of Greg Cima's incarcerated father were consistently interesting.

I also enjoyed seeing Jason Wiles as a high school student in this after seeing his later performances as Officer Boscorelli in "Third Watch"
