Storyline

"The Miracle of the Cards" is based on the true story of Marion Shergold and her son, Craig, an eight-year-old English boy who had a brain tumor. Several events convinced Marion that God was leading her to a cure for Craig and that the get-well cards he was receiving had the power to keep him alive, so she launched a worldwide campaign to break the Guinness record for receiving the most get-well cards. At the time, the world record seemed an impossible 1,000,265, but Craig received over 350 million cards from all over the world. Against the advice of her doctors, Marion followed one of those cards to America for Craig's miraculous cure. Written by Robert Woods

There's a word for it...
11 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of those movies for which the word maudlin is so appropriate.

A mawkish performance from Catherine Oxenberg is the least of the problems this film has to offer.

Everything but the "quest for cards" is given short shrift, including a sub-plot with a sibling who is feeling abandoned due to the attention his terminally ill brother is given. A 2-minute segment clears this up neat and tidy, with no hard feelings.

Ridiculous mystical events leads one to wonder why God doesn't spend his time healing the kid, rather than wasting photons lighting up pictures and letters.

If there's no re-run of Little House on the Prairie running, this may be an acceptable alternative, otherwise skip it.
