I heard Mercy Me in concert before the movie came out. He talked about the movie, his relationship with his father, and how the movie got its name. I couldn’t wait to see it. The movie was awesome! What a wonderful story of how God can change a life.
A fabulous movie - loved the story! Was very moved! Will watch it again - !! and again!
Absolutely loved the movie!! Speaks to the heart and a message I needed to hear.
Outstanding! Very powerfully bittersweet would watch it over and over again if I could.
Excellent movie. Very very inspiring. Well done. Would recommend to everyone. My husband and i very seldom see movies, but we went to see this one twice and would go back again and take some more people with us to be touched again. This movie is life-changing for good!!!!! I encourage everyone to go see it and let it change their lives for good.
real life story with a beautiful ending because God brought a miracle and changed lives. it's a movie that I want to own and watch again and again
Excellent Christian themed movie about the power of God to change lives and how forgiveness sets one free. Also, plenty of good , powerful, and uplifting music.
I loved everything about this movie! Dennis Quaid and Trace Adkins! Wow!! If you want to see an inspiring movie that is a real life experience then see this...with a box of Kleenex! It shows how America embraces a movie that centers on faith and shows how God shows up ALL the time!!
True story that's inspiring. Must see for anyone who believes or is questioning the possibility of there being a God.
Excellent movie! Highly recommend!!!!!
Loved everything about it. Have seen it three times, and each time I see something new. Beautiful story of redemption and forgiveness. A must see no matter where you are in your life, but especially if you have broken relationships.
Loved the movie, cried through the whole show
It was awesome!
Loved it...saw it twice and will buy dvd when available
Outstanding movie. I cried almost all the way through.
Loved everything about it. Real life situations that we face everyday. Thankful for the biblical message of the power Jesus gives in our lives when we surrender to him. Loved everything about it. EXCELLENT movie. Seen it twice, and going again!
Talent is nice but talented passion and unexplainable faith are wonderful. And the reconciliation of father and son struck a cord in my childhood.
True stories make the best films. The acting, music & filming were excellent!
This movie gave us a realistic glimpse of how commercialized and worldly the "christian" record companies are. Sad but true. But equally as important it gave us a good shot of "Never give up on your passion and dreams" and "Never forget that God can change the human heart"
Nice when you go to a show and thourouly enjoy it. I never watch shows a second time, but I would this one. Worth the money!
The best movie ever. Learned so much about the song that I love.
This is a WONDERFUL INSPIRING movie. It is true to life and I believe it can help so many people struggling with family issues, personal issues , dreeams etc. Storing telling builds bridges and this movie certainly does that! WONDERFUL!
Loved how good wins... no one is a lost cause.. there is hope and restoration for anyone!
I liked everything about it!!!
I wanted to see this movie as soon as I knew it was coming out. Love, love this song. Sure wasn't dissapointed. Was greater than what I expected. Good to see such a down to earth, real life story. Can't wait to see it again. 👍🏻
GREAT MOVIE! WHY ONLY DAYTIME SHOWS?!? Hardly any theaters showing this great movie. Sad state of affairs. SHOW THIS IN THE EVENING AS WELL!
This was an excellent movie. Love the song , was great to see how it came to be. Shower the power of love and forgiveness and that God's grace is for everyone.
EXCELLENT MOVIE! Need more true - inspirational based movies like this one!
loved it! will see it again. have worn out 2 c.d.'s with this song on them. buy another! wonderful story, great song. everyone should see it. may change your life!
fantastic and life changing. I want to see it again and again. What a message,
What a wonderful movie! Good story well done and acting.
Relatable to all those who are struggling in abuse, addiction, etc...gives people hope, and to know the solution is found in Jesus Christ..
This is one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. We all loved it
I loved everything about it. Forgiveness everyone should practice it
I liked the actors, the story, the beauty of faith that heals.
Very good, touching. Love it
Great story line, Acting was the best and their credits should be doubled. I seldom return for a second showing but will on this one. Best two hours spent in a theater in a long time.
I am astonished that theatres allowed a Christian film about redemption thru Jesus to remain for weeks!!. I brought a number of people and everyone left emotionally uplifted and ready to share with others.
Go see this movie. It is a true and great story. The media is giving it no attention because it goes against their message. A film like this will not be made anymore in the future. My wife and I went twice. It is wonderful!
Very well done. I've heard a number of my friends say things "That movies gives me hope! My relationship with my father is just like his!". It's not just a movie to get entertained! It's a message of redemption, reconcilation, hope and most importantly... Gospel.
I correct my 1 star review. God gives us freedom of choices to improve ourselves & help others. Music bridges cultures, ages & frees the soul. Beliefs in love, kindness & music help to make this world a better place.
Unrealistic. If God really cared, all the many horrible tragedies around the world would not happen. Music is another Opiate for the masses.
Phenomenal. Shows how God can make something beautiful out of something horrible, in this case, a Triple Platinum song from an unhappy life.
I LOVED this movie. I would go to the movies more often if this quality of movie was shown.
Awesome movie . A must see
Oh my gosh! It's such a beautiful movie and it feels so good to watch something with such a profound message that warms your heart.
Amazing!!! Seeing it again. I proudly support feel good Christian movies like this!
Poignant and funny.
Feel good movie, likable believable actors, good photography. Inspiring music. Good for whole family! Not churchy or overly religious, the story of how a guy came to write a famous song.
This movie is an amazing true story of hardship, hope, perseverance, forgiveness, redemption just to name a few ! Go see it ! Everyone that I know that did loved it !!!! Great movie for families and adult children !
