Very moving! I laughed and I cried. Excellent picture worth seeing.
20 October 2009 | by See all my reviews

This was a very moving film. It made me laugh, made me cry, and left me feeling inspired. Really helps you to remember to appreciate your blessings. People of any age would enjoy this movie -- not just families or people going through unemployment challenges, although they would certainly benefit from it. Its message is universal and encouraging to people of all ages. It has something to offer everyone. You can't watch this movie and not feel touched by it. It gets its point across without being overtly "preachy." Simply tells a story and illustrates important life lessons while taking us through that story. I would see it over again many times -- it's one of those movies you could watch every year around the holidays to be reminded of what attitude you should take with you into that time of year. And if even it's not the holidays, it's still a valuable and enjoyable picture! Great movie. Wish we could see more like this.
