  • Summary: In making Touching Home, identical twins Logan and Noah Miller have accomplished the impossible. When their homeless father died in jail, they vowed that their autobiographical film would be made as a dedication to him. (CFI)

    The story behind Touching Home is more inspiring than the film itself, but don't let that deter you. It's the kind of can-do miracle that reminds us all that anything can happen and everything is possible.

    Even as Touching Home finds those moments, it's easier to appreciate the stars' dedication to a grass roots project than the project itself.

    Despite the tale's real-life basis and a solid Ed Harris as their fictive equivalents' alcoholic dad, Touching Home emerges as a formulaic triumph-over-odds tale with too little distinguishing detail.

    Despite dialogue devoid of subtext, weaknesses in the screenplay and uneven performances, the story, as rendered, has a disarming innocence.

    Incidentally, the film has an Inspirational True Story (and tie-in book) behind it, which comes across not at all in the rather formulaic stuff that's actually onscreen.
  6. 50
    Sometimes painfully sincere male weepie.

    Although convincing as athletes, neither Miller belongs on a movie screen; personal parable or not, this feels like a too-familiar trip around the bases.
