"The Ultimate Life" is hampered by a predictable story, stereotypical characters and wooden acting.

Top Critic

A terminally dull piece of faith-based family-values filmmaking designed to appeal strictly to the converted.

Washington Post
Top Critic

'The Ultimate Life' is an awkward, mostly dull, but well-intentioned faith-based movie, among the less-than-stellar offerings that, unfortunately, often presented to the sadly under-served faith-based audience that deserves thoughtful screenplays.

Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)

Drew Waters talent helps make this family film with a moral message entertaining.

Full Review… | September 12, 2013

The inspirational drama "The Ultimate Life" wears its heart on its sleeve so earnestly that it's easy to forgive the movie's heavy moralizing.

Audience Reviews for The Ultimate Life

The plot has a lot of holes that needed filled and I wouldn't be surprised to see another sequel to continue the story.
