Excellent/Moving Film
24 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

This film was incredible! I saw it at a special screening for State Officers for the National FFA Organization and the movie was amazing!

I wont go too in-depth in the plot (read the summary), but each gift that Jason received in the movie is very moving and powerful. It teaches value of so many important things such as giving, money, The movie is also really funny and works well with all audiences.

laughter and love.

Honestly in the audience were farm girls to city boys and action lovers to romantic junkies, and we were from all areas of the country - everyone loved it! This movie had everyone laughing and most people even crying (yeah, i don't cry and it got a tear or two).

If you liked Coach Carter, Remember the Titans, Cars, Miracle, or the Lake House you'll like this movie. Because all the movies won the Heart Land: Truly Moving Picture award.

You've got to see this movie!
