We watched this as a family last night and we just sat in silence when it was finished. All I can say is WOW! Fantastic cinematography, sound track, and acting. The casting is over the top superb. The screen writing is well done - believable and draws you in immediately. It is intense, yet fun; full of conflict, yet loving. The use of irony throughout is extremely effective - just when you think you have it figured out, they flip you upside down and take you with them. The most important thing I appreciate about this film is that it is wholesome and honors what is right. There are no language or modesty issues or inappropriate scenes. Those things aren't needed to make a top-notch film - and Jimmy is a prime example of that. Bravo to the team - and please continue to produce family friendly God-honoring films. We need more! Thank you!
