Interesting movie, bad teens and suicidal old man change each other.
21 June 2000 | by (Houston, Tx, USA, Earth) – See all my reviews

The movie's description was better than the movie. However, I still can give it "7" of "10". Some of the premises and scenes were a bit unbelievable. And Kristofferson delivered his "minister" character a bit loosely. However, the overall theme, that a suicidal man can find new hope through a bunch of rotten teens, and the same rotten teens can somehow learn the value of a second chance, makes for a worthwhile movie. I bought it for $2.99 at Blockbuster, used, so did not have much invested. I may watch it again now that I know the teens won't kill the old man.
