First of all, let's talk about who this movie is NOT for. It is not for kids - while it has kids in it, it is about adult problems. Second, it is not for people uncomfortable with others saying that they are Christian or that Christianity works for them (not sure why this is an issue in today's multi-cultural world, but if it is for you then you should pass on this movie).
For anyone else looking to see a movie that will make you smile, cry, laugh, and give you a sense of hope - this movie is for you. It is not preachy or even "faith-based". It just tells a good story about a man that is damaged by life but stops being the victim and allows himself to get the help he needs. The acting is great from the stars to the kids. The music is terrific. The cinematography is first rate.
Go see this. And take a friend who is hurting.

I see the truth of this film walked out in Celebrate Recovery daily. The program works! God heals. At Celebrate Recovery God uses his people to help point the way to himself. Everyone should see this movie!
I think because of the subject matter the PG-13 guidelines should be upheld by parents. Even though younger kids have to walk through the pain of addiction, abuse, divorce, grief, and other hurts in their home lives... they don't need to see it in the movie theater. They need recovery programs designed for their own age groups. Celebration Station is the kid version of Celebrate Recovery.
