Quotes

Joshua A. Beal: My question is about my Aunt Denise. She's not baptized, so that means she's going to Hell right?
Sister Terry: Uh, no, actually she's not, Joshua.
Joshua A. Beal: And my dad's best friend, he's not baptized either, and that means *he's* going to hell.
[kids beginning to clammer nervously]
Sister Terry: Joshua, I think you misunderstood.
Student: Oh man! Seth Greenburg rides my bus, he's not baptized...
Sister Terry: Okay, wait a sec...
Student #2: Hey, my cousin's going to hell?
Sister Terry: No, I don't think...
Student: The family living next door - their whole house is going to hell!

My family would like to invite you to see this film, we loved it!
26 February 2003 | by RonisSee all my reviews

My husband and I thought this was an excellent movie! We watched it with our 2 young daughters and it opened a great deal of doors for discussions with them. The casting was wonderful! I had read in an article that M. Night Shyamalan was kind of disappointed with it over-all, and I think that he should re-consider that thought. He states that he wants people to somehow be touched by and to identify with the work that he produces and this movie does exactly that! It hits home on all different levels for young and old.

This is a must see for families!!
