Trivia

The scene where Shelby (Gretta Hambrook) gives Jack (Matt Moore) an envelope with money inside is actually based on a true event. When writer/director/producer George A. Johnson was going through financially difficult times, he was approached by a young girl named Shelby, who had raised over $100, and gave it to Johnson so that his family "could have a good Christmas". The envelope used in this scene is the actual envelope that Shelby gave to Johnson, and if you look closely, you will notice that the envelope says "Johnson Family". See more »

Best Movie
20 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a MUST see movie. I generally am not one to go see a movie at the theater twice but I will be seeing this one again this coming weekend! And I will be going with a bunch of my friends who want to see it. I can't wait for it to come out in DVD. If this movie doesn't touch your heart nothing will! I think everyone can see a little of themselves in this movie. And this movie is great for all ages. How nice to view such an excellent movie the entire family can see and enjoy without all the profanity and such of others movies these days. My hat is off to George Johnson for presenting us with such a great movie. I hope it goes global because the movie sure sends out a message everyone needs to see, hear, and feel!
