    What a wonderful movie. Sweet and inspiring leaving you with that good feeling when you leave the theatre. Take the kids. Take the girlfriend. Take the wife. It is a great movie. We need more movies like this one in our theatres and homes. 🙂

    This movie was touching. It’s such a feel good movie. It really makes you think about life and the challenges people face, but it shows how they are overcome and how life gets so much better in the end. I loved this movie so much. It was truly inspirational.
