A true story every father should watch.
16 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It was so refreshing to watch a film without the usual gratuitous Hollywood garbage that I almost didn't notice the script problems. Given the choice between a few Bible verses here and there, or suffering through another 90 minutes of swearing, sex, and situations, I'll take the Bible verses. Yes, its a little slow and predictable--but then, real life usually is. Being true to life, some of the material might not be appropriate for young children. Actually, the script is not that bad for a first effort. On the other hand, the acting, music, and especially the story make it very worthwhile. The fact that this is a true story makes the message of the film very powerful. As a struggling father of four myself, I highly recommend it for every dad!
