Finally a real adventure with a message
30 March 2008 | by (Arizona) – See all my reviews

This movie was one of the best films I have seen in a long time! My kids loved it! It was nice to see a film that actually has a message as well as an adventure!

There are a lot of plot empty movies out there! More like crappy ones with not point! This is not one of them! It has something for everyone in it.

I saw this in the Sedona Film Festival and plan on going to it this week in the Phoenix Film Festival!

I am taking my kids and some of our friends and family! I can't wait to cry, laugh, and enjoy the ride this movie takes you on again! I recommend everyone go see it.
