Audience Reviews for Is There Life out There?

Okay, putting aside the fact that Reba is just my favorite singer, she's also an amazing actress! The message in this movie (and her song of the same name) is just so inspiring! LOVE it!

Not many people have heard of this movie, but after I watched it it became one of my all time favorites. I would recommend it to any Reba McEntire fans and anyone who wants to see a movie about the usual country mother who gets caught in the most unusual situations. It is a great family film and I can't wait to watch it with all of my friends and family! Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to watch 'Is There Life Out There'.
