This movie seems like it should have been on Lifetime or the Hallmark channel. If it weren't based on a true story I would have turned it off. The story follows two families... the boy raising awareness for homeless children and a mother/son who find themselves homeless. Those two storylines would have been sufficient, but added was the conflict between the hero's sister and their mother with some alarming disagreements. The movie is rated PG, which is surprising given the daughter's mouth... "My life sucks", "I don't give a [email protected]
%n", "a$$-crack of dawn" and a few other choice lines. The mother/son homeless storyline is heartbreaking and really shows how awful and desperate their situation is. It might be too much for younger children. The boy also falls and hurts his arm and they show a bit of blood. The hero and his mom, along with the homeless mother/son are fantastic stories, even if a little Hallmark-ie. It's got a great message and role models with the exception of the daughter. I could've done without her storyline, especially if it was embellished for the sake of the movie.
