"This movie was never viewed in theaters outside of the area (Sharon, PA) where it was filmed. Being a Patrick fan, I searched until I was able to purchase it. Patrick does an excellent job of portraying the son who returns home after a long absence to make amends with his family. The production and color were not the best, but I really liked the story."
Small town people will get this movie

"While admittedly not one of his best films, this is a decent movie. I think it helps if you're from the type of area where the movie was filmed. It helps you to "get it" a little better. I think a true Swayze fan owes it to themselves to at least give it a chance. I am actually from the town where it was filmed and had the pleasure to cross paths with Patrick on one occassion while he was out walking his dogs that he brought with him while filming. He is a true gentlemen and I wish him well in his ongoing cancer battle."

"It show how an event that happen 15 years ago had impacted the family. It was sad to see a family torn but gratifying to see that the family was able to work thorough the problem and reunited."

"After reading a few of the other reviews, I decided to voice my opinion. I have this movie on DVD and the review from the one that had a bad copy from 2003..... I don't agree with you at all. I personally like the movie and thought the story line was pretty true to "REALITY"! I myself am from a small town and know how people are when they decide to make you feel like an outsider because of something you did MANY years before, and some of my family has done this to me too. Patrick Swayze is one of my favorite actors and has been for years... And I think he did an excellent job on this movie and portraying "the outcast" returning home to make amends with his family. I only gave it 4 stars, but mostly because it was such an old movie and not one of Patrick Swayzes best."
Bad, BAD movie

"No matter what you read in other reviews, this move is terrible. Not only is the storyline, acting and editing unbelievably bad, the DVD transfer looks like it came directly from a VHS tape! A VHS rental at that! There is only one reason I own this "film" is my girlfriend is in one of the scenes. That it! If you are not related to someone in this movie, avoid it like the plague."
