Trivia

Dennis Quaid's character was a quarterback in high school. He also played a quarterback in Any Given Sunday (1999). If you notice the picture Bart has of his dad, it's a picture of Quaid in his #19 black jersey from Any Given Sunday. See more »

Goofs

Bart tells his Dad that he will be singing at the church and he can listen on AM 1080. Every scene in the movie that shows his Dad's radio shows the band switch in the FM position, not the AM band. See more »

I have gone to faith based movies before and always left for the most part unsatisfied. I can tell you this movie is different. You do not have to be Christian to understand and appreciate the story line. The movie is about forgiveness and hope and there is nothing wrong with that. The acting is well done, the story line is easy to follow and i must say there were more then a few times i got dust in my eyes and they watered. The song has touched millions and now the story will to. I heard it once said the song seems to never go away. Well there is a reason it never stops giving and the movie does not disappoint. I highly recommended this film.
