I wouldn't call this a Christian movie...
5 May 2017 | by Ralphnerin-1See all my reviews

when Jesus is not even mentioned during the movie. Granted, many prefer to watch a movie that's a feel good movie that isn't "preachy" (you can get a ton of those anywhere), but the gospel could have (and should have) been presented at least during the funeral scene. Live your dash? What does that mean? What about life beyond the grave (provided by a loving God through the death of His son on the cross)? Sorry if that's too preachy for many of you, but that is what life is really about. I do like the scene when Calvin and his daughter discuss prayer, but wish it had gone a little further.
