General Gist: A young boy appears as an answer to a couple's prayer for a child.
Deb's Take: I actually went to this movie several months ago with my two oldest kids. It was a pre-editing screening. The whole experience was pretty cool for my kids.My son was super excited that he was watching a movie that hadn’t even come out yet, and taking a survey at the end with our opinions made him feel special.
As far as the movie itself,I felt like the previews really played it up and it was a little bit of a let down.I was looking for something that would really touch my heart.Don’t get me wrong, the movie is touching, just not deep in your soul touching.I felt like all the characters had good chemistry.There were some funny parts, but it was a little slow at times.My kids both rated it highly in there surveys though, and I think it was a good family movie.I think younger kids may get a little bored,but 11 and up seemed to work.I have to say from a mom’s perspective, it was a fun night with my kids, but the movie wasn’t what made it memorable.
