Storyline

This movie is a very compelling love story that is hidden underneath the stress of raising a child who has mental instability. In this particular movie I found it amazing how well they portrayed a young boy who had lost almost all functional parts of his brain due to a near drowning accident. His parents fight throughout most the movie about conflicting views of how to raise their son, until one day a plane comes through their roof. The couple inside the plane (Pepper Upper & Mr. Moody) are almost like angels to the family. They make their valentines day, a day the Bridges family will not forget. The stranded couple force the stressed parents to come to copes with each other and their son and help them to see how to enjoy their lives again. In the end the parents fight about whos fault the accident was and then realize it was both of theirs and they are able to overcome this obstacle.

Neat story but foul language ruined it.
16 November 2003 | by (San Antonio, Texas) – See all my reviews

This was an entertaining movie about a 13 year old boy, portrayed by Kevin Zegers, and a couple of guardian angles, Christopher Lloyd and Yasmine Bleet, looking after him. Say what, they had to be, its revealed in the last scene. The really foul language of the Ritter and Williams characters almost ruined it for me, and was totally uncalled for. IT ADDED NOTHING! Otherwise, this would of been great family entertainment rather than R rated. Zegers did a superb rendition of a kid physically handicapped due to a near drowning incident which left him less than totally functional. Worth the time to view.
