Movie Info

A doctor who lost his son in a tragic accident gets a second shot at healing his fractured family by adopting a little boy with leukemia in this inspirational drama starring Lee Majors and Mel Fair. Ever since Dr. Drew Carter (Fair)'s son was killed in a devastating auto crash, his family has been slowly drifting apart. His wife Julia (Musetta Vander), who was driving at the time, has never been able to forgive herself, and their daughter Kayla (Aubyn Cole) has become emotionally withdrawn. But just when it begins to look like all hope for a happy future is lost, Dr. Carter receives a telephone call from Dr. Miller (Majors), who convinces him to become a foster parent to Johnny (Jerry Phillips), a young boy who suffers from leukemia, and who lost his mother in a drunk driving accident. Though at first Julia is enraged that her husband would agree to bring a dying child into their lives, Johnny's unbreakable spirit and unwavering faith teaches that family that with God's love, we have the power to overcome any challenge that life throws our way.

Audience Reviews for Johnny

½

I can appreciate a faith based movie if it's realistic. This one was was not, for so many different reasons. I work in the medical field so I'm always attuned to medical inaccuracies. It plucks me when they skimp on the technicalities, like the surgery scene where the kid isn't even intubated or being bagged (but you can hear the ventilator in the background). Secondly, the father in the story is supposed to be a busy oncologist, yet he seemed to have a lot of spare time on his hands. I couldn't believe it when he suggested blowing off his patients just to hang out with the family and go fishing. Most of the docs I work with are too professional to do such a thing! Lastly, I was appalled that the husband brought home the dying child after his wife had already told him "no". What a lack of respect, especially since she was still mourning the death of her son. Then the husband had the nerve to leave her all alone with the dying kid while he trotted off to a religious retreat. I would have kicked him in the pants so hard, he would have needed an orthopedic surgeon! I like to watch movies that set a good example but this one was overly preachy.
