    This is an incredibly simple plot. There's no real drama or peril. But ya know what, sometimes that's okay. This is a likeable movie that the whole family can enjoy together, and Andy Lawrence was a fantastic little actor at such a young age. This was cute.

    Presents a sturdy look at family solidarity, community, and the value of tradition. Also a boring, overly simplistic one.

    Though I had originally thought this might be cheesy and predictable…it definitely wasn’t cheesy, but instead was touchingly humorous. It was somewhat predictable, as most family movies are, but it was one of those things that you are happy to predict because any other way, the movie wouldn’t be worth seeing. It was interesting to see Naomi Judd as an actress, and though she wasn’t of the caliber of her granddaughter, Ashley Judd, she certainly held her own. Cliff Robertson’s screen presence is always welcome and he was top-notch as always.
