A Movie for the Whole Family
Artist & Author | Near Mt. Baker, WA | 07/09/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)
"I am not sure if this is a movie for kids or for adults; I suppose that should make it a good movie for the whole family to watch together. There really are two stories here. One is about an actor who is having family problems because he is away so much of the time on movie locations. The other story is about a 12 year old boy who loves dancing and performing, but lives in a small Texas town where Future Farmers of America, 'cowboying' and school team sports are held in higher esteem than entertainers. The actor and the young boy form a symbiotic relationship that helps put each of their problems in perspective and results in a satisfying ending to the movie. There are a few swear words, but otherwise this is an entertaining and safe movie for family viewing."
Paradise, Texas - A rather captivating Indi? film

"With Meredith Baxter in the cast, this was always going to be a likeable family film. The dance sequences were good - although it would have been nice to have had a couple more of them. (personal opinion). Generally well-acted. Keeping in mind that this is NOT a 'blockbuster' or some 'hyped-up' production costing mega-millions (nor does it try to be), it should simply be taken it face value... as a rather heart-warmin, feel-good type of move with a message on family life that is not rammed down your throat. I particularly enjoyed the acting of the children in this production - Ben Estus in particular.
The copy I received had a few strange sound quirks (echoey clapping?) that gave it a slightly 'boxy' tone quality at times - but these are minor distractions. Perhaps, interestingly, I also felt keen to know more about the movie they were 'supposedly' filming as a part of the story. The plot of the imaginary movie seems to invite being taken further."
