My family and I enjoyed this deeper topic of infertility. My 8yr old was apprehensive, but did enjoy the humor Timothy brought to the plot. I enjoyed the unexpected character...the pencil. The writer did a great job bringing in the small town feel of this quaint town. I loved seeing Jennifer Gardner on the big screen. It's a clean movie, with a deeper plot than children are used to. I would recommend it.

The story is definitely a little odd, but you can't help falling in love with Timothy. He is the cutest little boy ever and the movie all around is heart warming. You will definitely tear up a bit (several different times). It's a wholesome family movie.

I love all types of movies. From the trailers, I was not too sure about this one, but then I read a review here that said it was "the PERFECT movie" in every way. I I decided to give it a chance. The reviewer and I agree - it was PERFECT. Acting, writing, directing, sound/music, script, etc. One person here said it was "sad" - and yes in some ways it is...but they are missing the whole message of the film. I believe we need ALL TYPES of movies (especially if they are well made!) - and it is exciting to see a WELL MADE "Family" movie!!

I took my 5 year-old and 9 year-old, girl & boy. Both really liked the movie. They understood it and felt the emotions with the movie. It is rare to find a gem that involves both genders and age groups, and Timothy Green did it. I enjoyed the movie as well. From a mother's perspective, the movie was very touching. I cried, both sad and happy tears. All in all, I'm glad I took the kids. The best part was that there weren't any words or issues I that I would have preferred my kids not be exposed to. Genuine family movie.

Took my son for his 10th birthday with a bunch of famiily and it was between this and Diary of a Wimpie Kid. I was glad my son opted for this movie. Usually I am very antsy and get sleepy in kids movies but not with this movie. I was pleasantly surprised, it was really good, especially if you are a parent. This is a definite must see and it has a hidden message for all parents in this time where we expect our kids to be so perfect
