Go see it!!!, 29 September 2006
Author: youngace-1 from United States

It was an awesome movie. I laughed. I cried. I clapped. I cheered. I smiled! At times, I was on the edge of my seat! The message is truly inspirational. Reminds me a lot of "Remember the Titans" but faith-based. The movie stays away from the usual Hollywood hype. It's clean.....no sidetracking on meaningless words, bad language, or other things that detract from the plot or overall movie. They don't shy away from talking about God or praying. It has down-home charm and a feel-good quality. Our family loved it and will go see it again. I recommend it to anyone who wants to be inspired! My kids are already saving to buy it!
