    A movie that wears its heart on its sleeve.

    With its poky pacing, thin characters, obvious message and predictable plot, the movie amounts to a cinematic sermon that, like many of those given in houses of worship, has a good-hearted message that will be difficult to deliver to a snoozing audience.

    The eggshells the screenwriter and director walk on distance the story from the reality it aims to imitate. And that robs this tale of loss, grief and redemption of its punch.

If you have any type of moral fiber you will enjoy it. I am amazed at how really good movies get bad reviews from the "experts". Just because you may not agree with the message, doesn't mean its a bad movie. I didn't give 'broke back mountain' a bad review because I didn't like its message. Full Review »
