This movie is a remake of THE BLIND SIDE. Almost scene for scene. But it is still fresh and sweet. Where the movie The Blind side was thrilling because it was a true story, this movie is touching and simple fiction. It should have said in the credits...."based on the book : THE BLIND SIDE." They just changed the family from rich to struggling, and the kid from black hair to (bleached) blond, the Mom from "born again" to just an all around good person.
