Wait until it's on network
27 June 2015 | by (Portland, Orygun) – See all my reviews

First off, I feel really bad for the kid. It's terrible what he went through. But I think the Make A Wish Foundation and the people of San Francisco made a big mistake. They went so overboard with trying to make this entire thing "cool", that it backfired and became super corny instead. I mostly cringed through the entire film because I was embarrassed by what was portrayed. I also think once the child is an adult, that he will be embarrassed as well. He may even show resentment towards everybody for making him act corny and the way everybody got involved. I had high hopes for this film but was thoroughly disappointed. As a film maker, you know you've missed the mark if the audience is cringing with embarrassment through 80% of your film. Either way, do yourself a favor and wait until this is on network TV for free.
