One of the daughters makes a comment about being thirteen and the mom played by Jennifer Garner says "I know, practically an adult." Garner played a girl who literally became an adult overnight in 13 Going on 30 (2004). See more »
There is a scene where the main characters visit the aquarium (presumably in Boston as Christy and Anna are awaiting a call from Boston Children's Hospital) and a whale shark is seen inside a large tank. There are no whale sharks at the Boston Aquarium- in fact, the aquarium where this scene was filmed- Atlanta Georgia- does not look at all like Boston's aquarium. See more »
When I was growin' up, people didn't really talk about miracles. I'm not sure I understood what they were or if I believed in them. A miracle is defined as something not explicable by natural or scientific laws. But then how do you explain it? How does it happen? Who or what is behind it?

My daughter and I found this movie very uplifting. We were not looking for an Oscar worthy film but a movie that is positive and with a big heart. This is much more than a faith based movie but a very basic to goodness movie that we don't showcase anymore in films and we found this very appealing. For me, this is a movie that turned my daughter around as she is struggling with faith and life issues at the moment. That is a miracle by itself.
This is a small movie that we enjoyed and it touched our hearts and the acting of Garner and Kylie are commendable. All the actors in this movie are very convincing. The movie was just not all centered in faith but also about how the community, strangers and family rally behind the Beams. There is also the basic kindness that strangers offer without hesitation in our everyday lives are shown here and those are very comforting and should not be overlooked. This movie is not preachy but it is really about an ordinary day to day struggles of each and everyone of us. Great movie!
