This turned out to be a good movie. Nothing amazing about this movie but overall just a good movie. Worth the watch.

Slooow. Boring. Pointless. Far from inspiring or spiritual.

Sweet, but lacks a point, really.

The good acting made this film more interesting on the (unintentional) second viewing ! The story is still 'not so much',.. but I already expected this. Also the director/writer commentary is sincerely informative, and possibly useful to budding film-makers

one of my favorite movies- did not get the attention it deserves!

I loved it. Yes, it was quirky, but it was very funny at times and also incredible heartwarming too. It brought me to tears more than once. I loved the cinematography and music.

I found this rather sophomoric, and only gave it 2 stars because of the soundtrack and Luke Wilson's performance. It's too bad, as I really enjoyed "I Melt With You" and "The Mothman Prophecies" (other films directed by Mark Pellinton)

Very surprising movie about a man and the news he received which made he believe his days are numbered. He goes back to the neighborhood where he grew up bitter and ready to give up on life. His stucco home holds a secret. The face of Jesus is stained on the back of his house. He comes across a neighbor with faith and a few possible miracles. I loved this movie!

this film is kind of boring a times and you seem to know what is going to happen.

A bunch of bible nuts harassing a neighbour next door... who is btw a grown-up man still whining about his childhood. After a bit of god's wrath in the form of collapsing wall, he's healed. Bleh.
