There were a lot of missed oportunities that could have made this film truly remarkable. As it is, it was worth going to see it in a theater. I teared up at a couple of moments and cheered inwardly at Timothy's triumphs. The parents were as clueless as any parents. I would not hesitate to recommend the fiilm, just lower your expectations a little.

A real surprise!
I take my 11 year old son to a lot of movies. I did not expect this movie to be particularly good but I was really suprised. We both loved it.
Great story - Well told.

This movie is what I was expecting. It was very good, cute, funny and sad too. It is very hard to put he prices together intill the end of the movie. It is a family movie and it teachs grown ups a lesson. Which if you go see you will fine out. Its a good lesson. If you want to have a family one day. So go!

The movie is very well done and is a great story. That being said, I went in unprepared for many of the story lines along infertility, the adoption process for the parents and a child and the emotionality that in inherit in these complex issues. My daughter is adopted and we are very open about all discussions is this realm. This film really gets at the pain and the heartache that is interwined in the above, but too the joy that can emerge despite it all. I am not sure I would have gone to see this with my 8 year old however, without a bit of discussion ahead of time. I write this for any others who have struggled with infertility, the heartache and blessing of adoption, and the children that may or may not be a part of their lives.
The movie is wonderful, just be prepared for less of a light-hearted movie, and more of at a happy child teaching th the complexities of adoption, infertility, being different and rising above it all. Kids have so much to teach, if we let them.

This movie is completely and ridiculously predictable. You knew what was going to happen at the end from 5 minutes into the movie. The only good thing about the movie is that the actor that played Timothy Green and the girl he loves are very endearing. That girl is going to grow up to be an amazing beauty. I hope they both get cast in much better movies in the future.
