Goofs

After Seth evaluates Netty's Chevelle, he tells him, while holding the radiator hose, that his transmission is shot and then proceeds to tell him that to fix it, a used block will cost him around $800 or $900. When mechanics refer to the "block" they are referring to the engine. The engine and transmission are completely separate. See more »

Surprisingly good movie with a Christian element but it's not in your face about it. I actually highly recommend this movie. A-
22 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"It's OK to ask for help, that's what we're here for." Seth (Davis) is a high school student with no parents, two jobs and two little sisters he is trying to raise. Between getting beat up by the football team and trying to keep the bank away from his home he is trying to find his dead beat dad. Convinced he can do it all on his own he refuses help from everyone, but sometimes it is needed. Going in to this movie I was expecting another cheesy, low-budget Christian movie. I was wrong. While it was a little cheesy I really enjoyed this and Seth is so likable that it is hard not to pull for him throughout. While there are some pretty heavy scenes in this this is a very good family movie that teaches a lot of good lessons for families to talk about. For a movie I just put in so I could get the review done I ended up really enjoying this and I surprisingly recommend this. Overall, much much better then expected. I surprisingly give it an A-.
