Searching for David's Heart (2004 TV Movie)
User ReviewsAdd a Review
All of us were touched by this wonderful, compelling story. The kids were so lifelike to us -- we felt like we got to know them as people rather than characters in a movie.
Bravo and thanks to ABC Family! We are so appreciative that ABC Family brings films like this into our house.
The story is great. Darcy Deeton wakes up on her birthday to her brother who promises to spend the whole day together. WHen she finds him with his girlfriend kissing later on, she runs out. David's girlfriend, Janye, wants him to go after her, but he won't. He backs up backwards to the road and throws his keys in the air. He never catches them, as he's hit by a truck.
The story unfolds on her 16th birthday, a year after his accident. With the help of her friend Sam, she goes to find his heart, as he was a organ donor.
This story is for anyone, especially ones who have lost a loved one. I loved it, and my little sister loved it. I wish there were more movies like this out there.
This movie punctuated the absolute necessity for honest and open communication at all levels in a family. Timely and better communication could have spared the characters unnecessary guilt and would have aided in the healing process. Thank you Disney for presenting this message in such a well done fashion.
This is an ABC Family movie. It has enough charm in the two young leads. They're cute and endearing. There isn't much in the way of plot. It's really simple and rather innocuous. The flashbacks are fine although the guy playing David could be better. Panabaker gets to stretch a little in the acting work. In the end, it has a fine reveal although they refuse to give up the expected kiss.
The best part of this movie is the ending and i won't give it away,it was probably one of the best endings to a movie i've ever seen, it is so so beautiful and it left me in tears!!, it truly must be seen to be believed.
I have two older sisters that i love very much but this movie makes me wish i had a younger sister too.
A great acting of Danielle Panabaker in a hard role in which she has to show all the feelings around a brothers death (sadness, anger, love and courage).
A well told history that explains the actual facts interrelated with the past memories; and some good songs in the movie that will surely pull out some tears of you.
A touching family movie that worth seeing with a good company.
Why not 10 stars after all this?, well, just because the story could have been more deep and inspiring to me, but it did it good!

That is my humble opinion on it. Anyway about the story, I think they make brother and sister way too close, so close that it doesn't seem like brother and sister. Also it is really brief especially the ending and what I see is nothing really happening much in the movie. I meant nothing major or standout. Furthermore, that "dub" "dub" sound from everywhere she hears make me think it is some kind of ghost movie, which is a mislead. Beside all of that the movie does provide with a very good acting.
Recommendation: Definitely Not A Guy Movie.
Rating: 5/10 (Grade: D+)
