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.

Not many 14-year-olds have movies made about their lives. Zach Bonner is an exception, always has been, and that's why Little Red Wagon is such a sweetly inspiring story.... It's a nice movie, probably too much so for viewers seeking meatier drama.

The filmmakers never sentimentalize their story and the performances are first-rate. What could be cloying is played out honestly... and not just its good intentions.

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

The melodramatic storyline and moralizing tone are overbearing, and only O'Connor's performance rises above the level of a Hallmark Channel rerun.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

Poorly executed heartwarming beats aside, Little Red Wagon does an excellent job of showing how a charity grows and functions.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

"Little Red Wagon" almost seems better suited for a made-for-TV, Lifetime movie.
