First, this movie is not for everyone. Those who don’t like it criticize it for being sappy, syrupy, improbable, and manipulative. If you often describe emotional movies with those words, then skip this one. For the rest of us, it is a kindhearted movie that has a lot to say about human potential, human nature, and human existence.
