I loved this movie!
12 December 2010 | by (Weatherford, Texas) – See all my reviews

I'm a ninth grade student and I loved this movie! My mom and I both liked this movie and we don't always agree on movies. The characters are great, especially the granny and grandson who rescues her. The dad and brothers are crazy! My mom went to high school with Tom Huckabee and said that the movie is partly based on Tommy's life. Wow, that is SO cool. I bet he had a fun life growing up. I wish I had known him back then. I would have loved to meet his family! And I would have loved to meet his granny. She reminds me of my great grandmother, Mama Jewel. She was full of life and we all loved her. I give this movie two thumbs up!
