This film is for the entire family. While there is some fantasy involved, most will find this movie very realistic and heartwarming because it talks about many of the problems we have today with our families - discontent, disunity, greed etc. The well-used theme of being content with what you have is used in a very creative way in this movie. The problems are resolved in such a way that we can instantly feel like many of our own family problems have been solved. The film does an excellent job in exposing feelings we all have. There are times when we all wish we could be in a different family, maybe those who have the biggest houses and the biggest cars or the fanciest clothing. It may take something major for us to realize that we may very well have it good the way it is now. Those who enjoy humor will find it sprinkled throughout the film. Those who enjoy problems being solved in a realistic way will find it quite often. If you're looking for a good film to watch together with your whole family, may I recommend "Split Infinity" to you. Your hearts will be touched.
