The radio that Mr. Bridges listens to has an interesting history. While planning this scene, they wanted to use an old radio, but didn't have one. They were praying about it, and the day they filmed it, Stephen Kendrick went out to look for one. In about 30 minutes he found this one in a barbershop and they were able to borrow it. It was an antique that was once floating down the road in a flood many years earlier. See more »

The movie was well worth my time. I would encourage anyone who is looking for a good uplifting movie to check this one out. the characters are easy to relate to and the underlying story is very heartwarming. If you are having a bad day, or even if you are having a good day, this would be a great film. I left the movie feeling uplifted and full of hope!! The spirit of the movie is a bit reminiscent of "Pay It Forward". One word of warning, although the film does make you laugh in parts, you will need to bring your own box of tissues. After watching the film, I found out that the film was shot with only 1 camera. I honestly did not notice while watching the movie. everyone should be able to find a part of themselves in at least one of the main characters.
