WOW!!! What an incredible movie. As an avid movie goer and retiree, I see a lot of movies. I have not seen a movie this good in a long time. Take the kids, take the grandparents, take someone...but go see this movie.

While expecting a somewhat sappy and overly sentimental show, I was thrilled to find myself drawn in to this genuine and entertaining moral tale. It goes deep enough to be truely resonate while keeping in touch with the important choices in life that we can all relate to. I must see it again with my children and friends!

Awesome family movie. My sixteen-year-old son and thirteen-year-old daughter both enjoyed it, my daughter immediately putting it on her "birthday list". It is a combination action, romance, life lesson movie and is brilliantly acted and directed. There are a few flaws, but none worth mentioning. What a relief to take my kids to a movie with no bad language or disturbing images and with inspirational life lessons. I'm 54 and I really enjoyed it and felt inspired, too!

Got to see The Ultimate Gift on Sunday. I'm the kind of guy that has a hard time not crying at good flicks. This was one of them. A good bit is predictable, but so well done!
Although "God" is in the picture, there is little direct reference to having a personal experience with Him, which I felt was a real miss when one truly considers the ultimate Gift. For God so loved the world He gave... (Good old John 3:16). The ultimate gift is unconditional love.
So, if you're not wanting an in-your-face God movie, this will likely do it for you. The God part could be seen as subtle, for those who prefer a subtle God. Lots of excellent lessons and a super re-cap at the end. Loved the young lady, amazing job!

My husband and I went to see this movie simply because we had free passes. But we LOVED it...we laughed and cried and walked away moved. What a contrast to the nights that we leave a theater wondering why we wasted our $20.
