This is a powerful movie. The plot deals with forgiveness and real-life heartaches such as losing a loved one or friend, and broken romances. In contrast to the forgiveness the characters display to one another, it realistically depicts an over-zealous woman who condemns others for their lifestyle choices. Yet she is put in her place by the film’s end. John Schneider, the star of this film, gives an excellent and humorous performance as Gary, a character who is skeptical of religion. He has some great lines, such as when his friend Jeremy falls off a roof onto a thorn bush, and he tells him, “It’s a good thing it wasn’t a burning bush!”
Since the film does boldly deal with controversial subjects such as abortion and homosexuality, and it leads to a satisfying conclusion, we recommend the movie for ages twelve and above.
