Crazy Credits

In the opening credits, we are told that the story is "based on the book by Timothy Susanin, forward by Diane Disney Miller." It's supposed to be "foreword," not "forward." This error is one of the most common in English and does not speak highly of the technical team's literacy level. See more »

Not good... but not crap
4 July 2016 | by lizzymcowanSee all my reviews

The heart of the story was there, but however, the way the story was presented was not. It felt like a cheap Hallmark movie. Even though the shots were fine, the direction the actors were forced to take, the movie score, and the desperate attempt to make you feel emotion was VERY cringe worthy. That's something the story should do itself. Throughout the film, the movie continually tried to squeeze some 'inspirational' piece of crap, line of dialogue to pull at your heartstrings, and it ultimately failed. The movie took me two days to watch because I was so bored 75% through the film that I couldn't finish it in one sitting. That is a movie sin that even God can't forgive. If you can't entertain the viewer, why are you making films? The movie was released in 2015 and it just so happened that I came across it on Netflix. I wondered why I never heard of it, but now I know. I don't recommend this film on any scale, but because I'm a fan of accuracy, I feel it's the only redeeming quality of this film. 6/10, just below average.
