This is true to the Celebrate Recovery roots and opens up doors of communication from both sides of the fence. those who are fighting to gain freedom and those in recovery living one day at a time one moment at a time taking what Jesus did...... God grant us the serenity...

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 went to see this with my mom. She is 85. She was not sure what to expect, just that it had to do with baseball and recovery. I asked her if she liked it and she said that she really enjoyed it. It was nothing like she expected. She said it didn't push God on people and that it was a very good story.
This was my second time seeing the movie. I had previewed it a month or so ago and I expected it to be pretty good, but it had exceeded my expectations. A very realistic view of life. The storyline is believable because it relates to everyone in one way or another. It is not heavy-handed and it is just a good story. I cried more this time I saw it because I know how it feels to be brought to a place that Cory finally found himself in. I also know the feeling of the hope and freedom that he began to experience.
I would recommend this movie to everyone. This movie is guaranteed to move you emotionally in a very good way!

This movie was very good. The story line was so real and true. Many people suffer from things and ONLY a relationship with Jesus Christ can change things. It is so nice to see a movie like this made. If only people would go see it...it could change there life.
