Sweet movie!

This movie lived up to my expectations after seeing the promos on TV. My five and seven-year old grandchildren loved it and it held their attention for the entire movie. I was pleased that it was a real movie...not a cartoon...and that there was no violence like with last summer's creepy big CARS movie. This was a sweet story with solid messages for kids (and all of us) to remember.

Touching film

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.

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!!

Great 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.

The clips on tv do not do this movie justice

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
