Our whole family enjoyed this movie. It is one we are keeping so that we can watch it again. It was great to see a movie where the brothers all loved one another and you could tell that even when they had differences.

Two thumbs up!
Susan Manchester | Jacksonville, FL USA | 05/07/2007

"WONDERFUL movie starring Ricky Shroeder about an older brother trying desperately to hold his siblings together as a family, despite an alcoholic father who tries to defeat him at every turn, and greedy people who try to take advantage of his good fortune when things start to turn around. Ricky portrays an older teen with just the right mix of confidence, confusion, exhaustion and frustration. He definitely makes you believe in the character."

"This type of story is a difficult one to pull off, but this movie does it. Not a dull moment. Things keep changing all the time. The emotional tension remains tight all the way through, yet the movie never becomes oppressive. There are a number of relieving moments of achievement, of aid from other people, of being befriended by strangers. The characters, especially the father, are all realistic. No stereotypes here. The father is a real horror. Unfortunately, such people are not only real but not uncommon.

Rick Shroeder does an excellent job with the acting and with the Georgia accent. Not a trace of his natural southern California accent comes through in any of the scenes.

Good movie for the whole family. Worth watching again."

"I have always thought Ricky Shroeder was a great star and this movie just adds to his greatness in my mind. As an older brother he was determined to keep his promise to his dying mother to keep his siblings together. Feeling he had failed at times did not stop him from pushing forward to accomplish his goal. The odds against him were great but he made you believe in the boy and his fight. I would recommend this highly and I have watched it over and over again. He also did a great job of acting with Brad Pitts in Across the Tracks another great movie about brothers."
