Great emotional film worth seeing!!
26 December 2015 | by psmithyyyyySee all my reviews

I am surprised how harsh these people on IMDb are towards this great film. Just shows you how critical people can be and perhaps even a bit cynical. I was moved by this film, from the sad theme that plays in the beginning, to swayze's performance which I must agree carries the film. I was very well acted, and the emotions all the characters feel are real. even the annoying unforgiving sister, some part of me thinks that well, I can understand why she feels the way she does towards tiger. He did a lot of bad things. I was very sad for him, the scene when he meets his mom for the first time in years was so moving, I almost teared up. You just really see that he wants to change his life, one small step at a time, even getting a job as a checkout clerk at the local store, as lowly as it is he wants to change his life and you cant help but realize how true to life this really is. it touches home in many ways. the only one who understands him are his friend and old flame, who was beautiful and relatable. She like tiger is remembered for having a rather sordid reputation, she used to sleep around with the jocks and was the town whore I suppose. But both of them need those second chances, I felt bad when he decided to leave her and the kids, and that he almost commits suicide....it was just such a sad sad story but a beautiful one, and anyone who cant enjoy this, who cant see how hurt families can be and I suppose I can understand this story myself. If your a cynic or a critic, or both, don't watch this. If your an actual human with a heart and love smaller scale character drama's about family forgiveness and redemption, watch this. You wont be disappointed.
