Movie Info

An 8-year-old boy dedicates his life to helping children rendered homeless by Hurricane Charley, and learns that you can't put a price tag on life's greatest gifts in this inspirational drama based on actual events. Dejected at the images of families whose lives were uprooted by the disaster, Zach Bonner uses his trusty wagon to collect essential items that will help them get back on their feet. When the media spotlight's Zach's benevolent endeavors, the selfless seizes the opportunity to launch his own charity, dubbed the Little Red Wagon Foundation. Later, Zach encounters a widow and her son who were rendered homeless by the story, and vows to draw attention to their plight by embarking on a cross country walk. Despite his mother's trepidations about the journey and his teenage sister's growing resentment over being stuck at the center of a media circus, Zach sets out on a journey that will transform not just his own life, but also the lives of everyone he encounters. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Little Red Wagon

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2)

There's weighty material waiting to be processed here, but in "Little Red Wagon" it doesn't have a home.

Even the cheesiest inspirational flicks have to be populated with characters who have something at stake. Conflict is the heart of good storytelling, and "Little Red Wagon" is conflict-free to the point of catatonia.

Inspiring story of a boy's efforts to help homeless kids.

July 23, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

A double whammy about the crusade of a big-hearted boy who helps homeless children and a depiction of the plunge of a mother and her son into poverty.

January 14, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Well-intentioned, but a little heavy-handed and manipulative.

January 5, 2013 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The melodramatic storyline and moralizing tone are overbearing, and only O'Connor's performance rises above the level of a Hallmark Channel rerun.

December 3, 2012 | Rating: 1.5/4
