What a wonderful, sweet, inspiring story! I've always felt that a good movie is even that much better when it's a true story! I really enjoyed this one. Cuba Gooding Jr. was so good!

Typical story of someone who arose above their circumstances to do something amazing. Nothing to complain about here, but nothing spectacular either.

I'd give it 12 stars if I could. It's awful (as in full of awe) to see God flaunted so openly in a Hollywood culture. We know nothing, and are capable of miracles.

Ben Carson: Success is determined not by whether or not you face obstacles, but by your reaction to them. And if you look at these obstacles as a containing fence, they become your excuse for failure. If you look at them as a hurdle, each one strengthens you for the next.
